They should be grateful they'll no longer be affiliated with a school that would prefer to see them dead.

Having a very hard time processing this.

Firstly - if they are living off campus, what business is it of the University if they have a personal weapon? On campus can be argued, but off?

Secondly - Is the administration really this foolish? A student protects both himself and others and gets punished?

Thirdly - If they do get expelled, they had better be done so with both a clean record and the ability to transfer their credits to another institution. Also - a full refund of their tuition fees.

Look - I get the general idea that weapons in the hands of the young is a bad idea. Yet I have known 8 year olds I would trust with any weapon they could physically handle, and 50 year olds I wouldn't trust with a pen knife.

Now for a more uplifting story that you won't see in the news. This was posted yesterday to a  pro-Second Amendment Facebook group of which I am a member.
Quote
Kroger parking lot (here the poster names the town), my husband B____ was mugged at knife point. Asked the kid if he wanted wallet or money, kid said wallet, so B____ reached and pulled his gun. Needless to say, kid ended up dropping the knife, got in his car and left. BOLO for a dark skinned young man in a souped up green Chrysler with a bad paint job and chrome wheels.
He kept the knife and gave it to the police to check for fingerprints.   :beer:
