"I'd just point out that the only person who's been killed has been the shooter,"... "I think the situation might be a lot more chaotic and a lot more deadly if a number of students had tried to go in and be heroes." "The system worked."
- John Woods - UT Grad Student
The system worked?
Just like most campus shootings, this one was stopped by a man with a gun. The only reason a large number of students weren't shot is because Colton Tooley didn't intend to kill them. Tooley's decision not to walk around killing his fellow students was the only thing that kept others safe.
The system didn't "work." University of Texas students got lucky, nothing more. A locked down college campus, huddled in a building, unarmed and unable to leave is the last place I ever want to be if there's an active shooter running around.
I don't know what's wrong with all of these "No Guns Allowed" signs posted at universities across the nation. Perhaps they should ask for their money back, since obviously the signs aren't working as advertised.
