I don’t really have much to add to what people are saying about the terrible tragedy in Virginia. Suffice it to say, that any of us involved in education felt the sheer mindless unexplainable stupidity of it. As I stood in-front of my class of 150 (mostly) soon-to-be graduating seniors at 3pm yesterday, I found myself looking at the exits and wondering what would happen if a gunman entered.
A number of years ago here at ASU there was a discussion about allowing firearms on campus. A proffered solution was to arm professors.
Thirteen years in this country, and I still don’t understand why guns are so easily available.
What a sad and useless waste of life.
