I live in California and the crime rate is one of the highest. It is nearly impossible for anyone to obtain a concealed carry permit... and that is why I am moving from this wicked state.

I used to go to UA Huntsville, and they had a no carry policy and yet the shooting still happened, im not really sure you thought through what you are saying too well. Either that, or you have some sort of a phobia over guns, in either case I would suggest you educate yourself with some facts before making an emotional uneducated plea in one direction or another. And if you are afraid of guns the best way to get over that would be to educate yourself on gun safety and how to properly handle a firearm. And when you finally do start to look at some statistics and studies, which as a psychology major you should already probably have know to check out before you wrote this since these are a cornerstone of your career path, you will see that guns make these types of shootings LESS likely and in general promote a safer atmosphere

Erik, great article on the issue.
I'd like to add that if you want more information on the common arguments and rebuttals to the issue of concealed carry on campus, you can visit http://www.concealedcampus.org/common_arguments.php.
On this comment from the editorial Erik is responding to:
- “it would be difficult for police officers and trained professionals to decipher who was shooting whom,”
I'd like to add that it took officers 9 minutes to respond to the Virginia Tech shooting, after 33 individuals had already been murdered. In the majority of mass shooting situations, police don't respond to the scene until after the shooting has transpired and finished. Officers are highly unlikely to arrive to a panicked situation as the situation would more than likely be over.

The Frank Sinatra show was a great show with wonderful style and marching technique. The band works harder than most students at this school and they always strive to be the best at each and every game. And just so you know, the band is going to be playing a Lady Gaga show which includes Poker Face, Just Dance, and Bad Romance. I think you should support the band in all that they do. And if you don't then you can go to the school across the state that likes to criticize their band also.

So you would feel safe at Columbine, Virginia Tech, UA Huntsville where CCH is not allowed?
You forget that laws only are followed by law abiding people. Criminals ignore laws by their very nature.
By banning CCH, the only thing it does is makes life easier for criminals.
They have nothing to fear from their victims.
Also if a CCH is used in other than self defense, the CCH permit holder is held to a higher standard and will get a more severe sentence, because they know the law. (Or at least that is what my local law enforcement officers tell me.)

Aren't you a little old to be listening to Lady Gaga?
And why can't the flag and dance line be followed around by photographers on the field. There are other girls on the field who work hard, too.

I don't disagree with you that Sinatra isn't typical marching band slamming loud music, but maybe that's what the director is going for. I think he wants to keep the audience entertained with music of all kinds of genres. Including past shows like the Rolling Stones, Halloween themed, Skynyrd show, the Irish show, the Latin theme, etc. All the different "pop music" shows are during the Honor Band week and the Alumni game. Just wait a few more games and then decide what you think about their musical choices for the year.

Someone who is going to follow you at night with the goal of shooting you doesn't care if there is a concealed weapon policy on campus!
