    "Virginia's current law prohibits concealed-permit holders from carrying weapons into courthouses, churches, airports, bars and K-12 schools, but not colleges and universities. Colleges, however, are allowed to put policies of their own in place that would result in administrative, but not criminal, sanctions."

    At the request of the chancellor, the community college system formed a campus security task force last year to review gun policies, said Susan Hayden, VCCS's director of public relations. Hayden said a report is due out next week.

    At the recommendation of the team, JMU installed a new speaker system, upgraded mass e-mailing capabilities to allow officials to send out 20,000 e-mails in a few minutes, and implemented a new cell phone alert system to reach students, faculty and staff.
    I don't know about you guys, but this makes me feel MUCH better already!

    Me too EYES, thank goodness it's only gonna take a "Few Minutes" to notify everyone that a gunmen is loose on campus. That means the gunman is only gonna have a "Few Minutes" to kill people, not like the 2 hours Cho had at VT...
