    Per the Orlando Sentinel story, UCF was trying to take a "compassionate" approach, which is why a 30-year-old loser who wasn't enrolled for spring semester classes was still living in a campus dorm in March.

    Something tells me the next such student won't get nearly the same level of compassion.

    You mean the roommate stopped him without shooting him?

    You mean the guy was firing at students and was stopped without being shot?

    Tell me, Dick, how many people on these boards have advocated shooting someone for "having" weapons and/or planning a mass shooting?

    Ahem. The guy may not have shot anybody, but he did point a gun at his roommate.

    This is my rifle, this is my gun;
    One is for fighting, one is for fun.
