On April 16, 2007 a crazed man walked onto the Virginia Tech campus and murdered 32 people. They were killed in a gun free zone and had no way to fight back.
Earlier this week during the annual Students for Concealed Carry conference in Washington D.C. Holly Adam Sherman, a retired Naval officer, advocated for concealed carry on campus. Sherman is the mother of Leslie Sherman, who was murdered at Virginia Tech. Last year during the Navy Yard shooting, Sherman and her husband anxiously waited to hear if their other daughter, who worked there, was a victim. Luckily this time, she was not.
"Put yourself in my shoes and wonder, 'What's the answer?'" she said. "If only on that horrible day someone in the dorm or in the classroom could have carried a weapon and stopped the killer in his tracks before he claimed 32 precious lives."
