Guns on Campus - A Great Idea

California Beat reports
Three people were struck and killed by gunfire inside a San Jose State University parking garage Tuesday evening in an apparent murder-suicide, police said.
Campus police said the shooting happened after 8:30 p.m. on the fifth floor of a multi-level parking garage at South Tenth and San Fernando Streets near Downtown San Jose.
Authorities said two people were killed in the shooting and a third person — believed to be the shooting suspect — was transported to a local hospital suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The third shooting victim died shortly after arriving at the hospital, according to authorities.
You know what the pro gun voices never mention when they champion guns on college campuses and any other loosening of gun restrictions for that matter? They never mention that the vast majority of murder-suicide incidents is committed by lawful gun owners. I believe the figure is about 85%. These are unstable gun owners who just crack.
I suppose if you divide the total number of murder-suicide incidents by the 80 million gun owners in America, the percentage is very small. I say we should divide by all the stars in the galaxy, AND IT'S STILL TOO HIGH.
