    Fast forward to about minute 4:49..

     

    SEAGRAVES:If you’re a legal owner of a firearm, should you be able to carry that firearm anywhere you want — schools, public transportation, bars, restaurants?

    FIMIAN:  …You know, I think that at Virginia Tech, if one of those kids in one of those classrooms was packin’ heat, I think that, that would not have happened.

    SEAGRAVES:  It is illegal for students to carry guns into the campus…

    FIMIAN:  The perpetrator of that crime would’ve thought twice before walking into a classroom if he thought there was any chance of someone being armed and preventing him from doing that.

      That shooter had extreme mental illness and in my opinion I bet if the VA Tech SWAT Team was waiting for him he still would have attacked the campus.  As a deputy sheriff, we go through various qualifications semi-annually and are expected to maintain a high level of proficiency and have a thorough understanding of laws relating to such areas.  Also, imagine the amount of stress regular student would be under coming under attack from such a deranged individual and whether they would have the mental capacity themselves to accurately discharge their weapons and neutralize the threat.  Just crazy…
