Gunner Student

In the wake of the school shootings at NIU and Virginia Tech, some states are considering laws which would allow more guns on campus, the theory being an armed populace could intercept shooters. I think anyone who's observed drunk football players at a party knows why it's a bad thing to put guns in their hands, so count me opposed.

Anyway, some of the laws would give the gun rights to just faculty, others faculty and students. However, Daniel Drezner observes that in Oklahoma, only the students will have the right to carry arms, thus giving a whole new meaning to the "gunner" in class.
