I hear a few people saying that if more students were armed, college shootings wouldn't happen. I disagree. Most people have no idea just how many firearms are on any given campus in Texas. Hell, I kept a .45 under the seat and a 12-gauge in the trunk when I went to school there. Illegal? Sure--but not something that almost everybody else didn't do.
There was a girl who had transferred in from somewhere in New England. She went on a date with a guy from our school. The next morning, she was frantic. "Last night, I opened his glovebox and five or six pistols fell out in my lap!"
She thought the guy was a serial killer or something. Our little circle of friends took her around to our cars and showed her our own arsenals and said, "Welcome to Texas!"
