Smith and his colleagues immediately put the recital hall on lockdown and alerted the audience of about 400 students and guests to the situation. He said his priority was to ensure that his students were protected from both the external threat and the internal threat from anyone who could have been carrying a concealed weapon.

At one point, a young man became very agitated, and he stood and said: Whos got a gun? Are you ready?' Smith said, adding that several people acknowledged they had concealed weapons.

I went to the people who nodded, and said, I suggest you keep your weapons concealed, because if the police enter, they wont be able to tell the difference between a good guy and a bad one.'

The killer was 19 years old. He did not have a concealed carry permit and broke numerous laws just by his possession of a gun.

The legal carry of a gun on campus law has nothing to do with this incident.

Had the officer(s) wHo brought the shooter in had frisk ed him, which I had thought was SOP, the gun would have been found and this tragedy averted.

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and punishment (1764).
