Gun Rights Activists Make Their Case

"Sitting in folding chairs on the stage at Memorial Hall at James Madison University, students on Wednesday evening participated in a classroom situation where a gunman breaks into the room.

In the first scenario, the gunman is the only one armed. But in the second demonstration, the gunman, teacher and a student are armed.

Security company owner Shawn Deehan of Fredericksburg said the classroom was safer when the students and teacher had the opportunity to stop the gunman and protect themselves.

"They had a chance to survive," Deehan said of the students in the second demonstration. "In the other scenario, they have no chance at all." [link]

Good to see that some universities unlike others, understand the importance of well informed, armed citizens on their campus. For more information about gun week at JMU visit
