This is so friggin’ stupid. This whole gun thing has gotten so bizarre and absurd. Nothing in this story would warrant Lander University even being concerned with this. Take note that this article has “Sandy” in it, with all the “Sandy” stuff going on I’d be extremely paranoid if my name was “Sandy”. – Phoebe
