Well, Hindsight is 20/20 Posted by schizo on 10/26/2009 3:18:06 PM

So, recently on campus we had a student bring in a "non-functional" shotgun for a class demonstration. Is it just me, or do I vaguely recall all educational institutions to require no real or fake weapons on campus. Anyhow, no one in the building realized that this was supposed to be an unloaded shotgun for a class demonstration. Naturally, it was called into the police. The entire Micron Engineering building was evacuated for the "incident." In fact, one of my co-workers was interrupted by police pointing a gun at him and telling him to put his hands in the air.

What really urk'ed me about the whole situation is really the fact that they we're allowing a student to bring a weapon to school whether it for a demonstration or not. One BSU official when questioned about the manner stated that "it has always been our policy to not allow real weapons on campus." Who decides if a weapon is real? The shotgun the kid brought was real, just non-functional... Personally I think allowing fake weapons on campus brings in a question of ambiguity. When the whole thing occured, plenty of people said "well if the police had known about the situation, the whole thing could have been avoided." OH, BY ALL MEANS TELL THE POLICE A WEAPON WILL BE ON CAMPUS BUT EVERYTHING WILL BE SAFE! You'd have to be kidding me. Say you're some disgruntled student and you overheard someone was bringing a weapon to school, now I can bring one and nobody will be the wiser. After Columbine High and Virginia Tech, taking a chance like this shouldn't even be considered; we should be smarter than that.
