    So read this...

    13. [Prohibits] Possession, use or display on University property of any firearms, weapons, fireworks, live ammunition, incendiary devices, or other items that are potentially hazardous to members of the campus community.''

    The individual that stopped the shooter violated this article (thank God) by at least carrying and using pepper spray on the shooter...he broke the rules and saved lives by not being a helpless victim...

    This is why CARRY should be allowed on campuses...

    <- Why there aren't any school shootings in Israel!
    Teacher with long gun slung over her shoulder!!!

    The "individual" was a student security guard and was probably authorized to carry the pepper spray.

    This story reminded me of the "Run, Hide, Fight" video put out a few years ago. The hero of the story didn't cower behind a desk waiting to be shot he took the offensive and took the attacker out. Excellent job.

    I quoted the student handbook on KATU, and said that the shooting was impossible because guns aren't allowed on campus. KATU deleted my comment :(

    SPU shooting: Mayor blames ‘epidemic of gun violence’ but school a ‘gun-free zone’

    Anti-gun Seattle Mayor Ed Murray wasted no time trying to exploit yesterday’s fatal shooting at Seattle Pacific University, but his remarks are being overshadowed by talk of heroics credited to a student who pepper-sprayed and physically took down the suspected shooter, identified this morning as Aaron Ybarra, who could make his first court appearance today.

    When the shooting starts. It will not stop until somebody gets there with a gun.
    What's so hard to understand about that?
    Cops have been given the green light to carry guns. But we all have the god given right to defend ourselves.
    If you don't want to carry a gun fine. Rely on your Shepard and take your chances.
    These kids have just learned that experience is a cruel teacher. It gives the Test first, then the lesson.

    I'm sure Seattle will make a try for changing the preempting clause in our state constitution.

    In Oregon, isn't it legal to carry concealed on campuses if you're licensed? I'm pretty sure it is.

    According to this article the Oregon Supreme Court ruled the Oregon University System doesn't have the right to usurp state law. I don't know if anything has happened in the 3 years since this ruling, but I couldn't find anything stating so.

    Mother Jones also lists Oregon as state where you can conceal carry on campus.

    I'd rather have a CC on me and ask for forgiveness after the fact if I need to use it.

    Otherwise they would not know I owned one, much less that I was carrying it.

    If you walk around Capitol Hill (where SPU is located) like I do, time to time, you will see the most naive and ludicrous liberal weirdos in our country. The irony of it all is there is universities in much conservative states and cities that have the same draconian anti-gun laws. Boise State University in the freedom loving red state of Idaho has been very staunch advocates for gun prohibition in a city that is otherwise gun friendly. I never could understand it. Unfortunately, most colleges are run by the ultra liberal elite who seem to be supporters of control and promoting authoritarian rules.. I can say many college board governments are on a power trip. Colleges seem to be breeding grounds for liberalism and socialist indoctrination. It is unfortunate that this is the place that is suppose to produce our future generation of educated and productive citizens.

    Heh, go around Reed or Berkeley. Know what you mean though.. it's rife even in rural community colleges.. heck, elementary schools.

    It's not in the constitution, it's right there in the specific law RCW 9.41.290. I know, it's a nit, but well I picked it. Sue me :)

    This is the whole deal here. Kids with strength of character stepped up to stop a shooter to protect their fellow students. As every single student there would tell you, the guys running TO the gunfire were protecting "their family," not cowering under desks hoping it would all go away.

    I'm a liberal and very pro-gun...

    I believe CHL holders ought to be able to carry on campus. The world is a scary place and you have to be prepared.
