Good grief.

This is so sad.

And then again.....this couldn't have possibly happened because guns aren't allowed there.

Yeah all 6 of them patrolling the 20,000 students over 3000 acres. :rolleyes:

Virginia Tech is a gun free zone. lol

All the police will do to protect you is have a designer body bag waiting after an assault.

I understand the argument in the context of the massacre years back; this was a police officer that was shot. I assumed the officer was armed.

Yes...the University as do most universities has armed police officers. A student or another person yet unidentified was also shot.

It is unclear if that person was armed.
