Quote of the Day: Undergraduate Edition

“We often wonder if school shootings would have different endings if students had guns to take matters into their own hands. All the modern-day shooters had one thing in common: they were bullied. They brought guns to school to even the playing field. Harassed for their size, interests or social awkwardness, these boys were compelled to procure lethal weapons, bring them to school and take out their anger. I find it ironic that in institutions of higher learning, which take pride in spreading ideas and critical thinking, people want more concealed weapons as a way to diffuse conflict. Suggesting adding more guns to the equation, with all the conflicts that occur on school campuses, is as reckless as opening Pandora’s box.” – Roy Ribitzky
