Oh, as we all know too well, you can and do go on and on. But since Seattle U's policy is not the same as the one forced on UI, the only point you've made is that this can happen anywhere. That's what the guns on campus people argue. That's why they say people should be armed.

Way to go.

I am simply and strongly against weapons on campus.  I have expressed this sentiment repeatedly.
I fail to see the appropriateness of armed students.
The possibility of weapons being introduced at on-campus fraternity keggers scares me.
You may believe that all on-campus fraternity festivities are innocent.  But I remember a while back when a drunk student fell out of a third floor window of a fraternity . . . or another occasion when Sigma Alpha Epsilon sponsored a party they titled "Fifty Ways to Lose Your Liver".  Guess what they were serving at that party.
How many times would you estimate that students are cited by the MPD for "minor in possession"?  Read the Public Records section of the Daily News during a Spring or Fall semester.  You might be surprised.
I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture.

    Actually, no.  While it is certainly your privilege to hold the
    view, and to express the sentiment, that weapons violence and
    injuries are an inevitable result of recent unfortunate legislation,
    I would prefer, in the first instance, at least, to grant to
    University of Idaho students a presumption of the ability to, and
    the will and determination to, considering the seriousness of the
    matter, conduct themselves in manners that will not result in
    injuries or deaths as a result of the recent changes in law. 
    Americans are supposed to grant a presumption of innocence to any
    accused before guilt is determined and judged.  Analogously, I would
    prefer to grant a presumption of adult responsibilities and
    capabilities to University of Idaho students before any incident or
    accident provides evidence to the contrary.


    In the last baker's dozen years changes have been forced upon the
    American populace that are both undesirable and onerous. 
    Unfortunate though some of those changes are, the fact is that some
    of them are reversible, and to some extent at least, a recovery of
    the status quo ante is not only desirable, but it is possible if we
    are able, collectively, to keep our wits about us, our strength and
    determination to persevere and succeed intact, and our will to
    reverse the wrongs and the inadequate judgments that have placed us
    in our current less-than-optimal positions.  While it may be a bit
    too much to expect a reform of the Republican Taliban that convenes
    itself in the south, it may be the case that after a quarter of a
    century of less-than-acceptable executive leadership, better
    alternatives might be found and elected in the foreseeable future. 
    Idaho's Dark Ages may now appear to persist indefinitely, but we
    must remember that there exists some possibility for a restoration
    of reason, if not actual enlightenment, in the executive branch. 
    While such a change is no guarantee of cures for what ails the
    state, it might serve as a tourniquet to stanch some of the bleeding
    insanity that fancies itself as a legislative lodge at lower
