Paramilitary schmores who watch way too many Rambo movies and spend too much time at the local Krispy Kreme.

Let me see if I have this right. Strive to disarm or rend powerless someone who is supposed to be around to enforce public safety and protect the students. Then, as the article admits, allow even students to carry tazers, since they are considered part of the general public, who cannot be restricted in their use of the same self-defense weaponry that the public may use in the state of Oregon. Then, add the thug, armed or unarmed (who knows till it's over?) to the equation. Hey, makes sense to me...

What's interesting is the fear that a student articulated in the article that someone might use a tazer to control violence that might be caused by students, drunk and/or protesting. After all, mob violence, mayhem and destruction is surely justified if one is either drunk or protesting. A point I would never have thought of all by myself. I can live with that.
