If it was legal to carry on campus, perhaps Cho would not have had the chance to kill so many. Someone could have taken him out sooner. And the citizens of Blacksburg and VT were lucky this guy decided to take himself out before shooting anyone else.

If someone has their mind set on murdering another, they obviously do not care what's legal and what's illegal. After shooting the officer, do you think this guy thought "Whoa! It's illegal for me to carry this gun on campus so I better not do it!" Wrong. It's your law abiding citizens who are going to follow the law and not carry on campus which leaves them vulnerable in situations like this.

He purchased it legally and sadly this kid has no previous real run ins with the law other than a speeding ticket. Sounds like he just went nuts.
