The problem with their solution is this.
...training to get a concealed carry license is "just eight hours in a classroom and a couple of shots at a target that's not moving in a range – a very, very controlled situation."The pro-gun argument of arming ordinary citizens or students in this case, as a first-response to criminal gun violence fails to consider that most of the ordinary gun owners would not be capable of helping. In order to do that one would need serious training and a certain type of personality, a combination of which your average armed citizen just does not have.
The down side, as continually pointed out by the police and University officials, as well as gun control advocates, is increased confusion, accidents and all the other problems that go with the proliferation of gun ownership.
