    "Data on the effect of carrying guns on campus are incomplete and inconclusive. The panel is unaware of any shootings on campus involving people carrying concealed weapons with permits to do so. Likewise, the panel knows of no case in which a shooter in campus homicides has been shot or scared off by a student or faculty member with a weapon."

    Um, didn't this happen in the law school shootings?

    Like in Utah, Oregon, and all of the other states with no laws against carrying on college campuses?

    They used NYC police chiefs? They couldn't find someone closer that maybe would have thought about the issue before opining?
