    I have two arms. That helps me cook better. One for holding the pan and the other forr the spatula.

    He's just exercising his 2nd Ammendment right, right? Just like that guy who went to JC Penney's with an assault rifle a while ago. They're not shooting anybody. Don't we feel much safer with armed people on campus?

      if he didn't have arms he couldn't do his school work. maybe he could hold the pen in his mouth to write but it would be sloppy.

    A rifle and body armor?
    So what? Guns don't kill.

    This guy wouldn't even be a threat if everyone had a gun.
