    I've read the report's summary of other school shootings. It omits the intervention of those armed citizens who apprehended the murderers and prevented further murders.

    When the panel claims it “knows of no case in which a shooter in campus homicides has been shot or scared off by a student or faculty member with a weapon,” I am reminded of the man convicted of killing his mother and father who asks for leniency because he's an orphan.

    The panel seems to forget that Gun Free Zones such as Virginia Tech work wonderfully well in preventing law abiding students and faculty members from having weapons on campus. Law abiding people cannot legally shoot or scare off a shooter in campus homicides because the law prevents them from having the means for it.

    So the panel's point is doubletalk and nothing more. Of course the panel doesn't recognize the idiocy of its statement and of course the public won't either. Pity. Schools and colleges now are likely to have even more stringent restrictions preventing Concealed Weapons Permit holders from defending their own lives once they step onto campus grounds. Future panels investigating future school shootings will then be justified in finding no cases in which "a shooter in campus homicides has been shot or scared off by a student or faculty member with a weapon." Deprive them of the ability to have a weapon and they cannot shoot or scare off a shooter in campus homicides.

    By the way, I wonder what there is about this country's schools and colleges that transforms adults from rational, trustworthy people on the streets into irrational, untrustworthy lunatics when they enter a campus. I wonder also why those same adults are rational and trustworthy again when they leave campus. They are the very same people so the problem must be in our schools and colleges.
