A letter to the editor in the N.M. Daily Lobo:
"Imagine that we can all carry weapons to campus. If an unbalanced individual walks into a class, pulls a weapon and opens fire, absolute chaos will ensue. The 20 students in the class will overreact as the adrenaline pumps through their bodies and open fire not only at the shooter, but at their classmates, as well. Other students who come into class brandishing their weapons, not knowing who initiated the violence, will start firing at everyone with a gun."
The link which should point to the Daily Lobo is pointing to the Hoya... As a New Mexico transplant, felt I should point this out.

The writer may be projecting how he or she thinks they themselves would react to such a scene, but the average person has sense enough, even under the influence of adrenaline, to not start shooting wildly...this person's assertion is utterly absurd, but it's clear they personally should not get a carry permit under any circumstances...too immature.
Adrenaline doesn't make you shoot.
