Even Luna Opposes Campus Carry

Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna, a member of the State Board, said he agreed allowing people to carry weapons on campuses could heighten dangers. For instance, he said, he’s been told by law enforcement that they would likely shoot everyone with a gun during a response to such a shooting, rather than attempt to try to decide who was the perpetrator. “They’ll shoot them both. They’re there to protect kids,” Luna said. Still, he urged state officials and university leaders not to merely offer opposition to “guns on campus” measures, but to actively develop their campus security policies. Every time a campus shooting occurs, he said, the debate will rage over how best to protect students -- including allowing guns. “Somebody is going to fill this void where they think there’s lack of a program in place to provide as much security and protection as possible,” Luna said. “This isn’t the last time we’re going to see an effort like this”/Associated Press.

Question: Seems that the broken-clock theory is in play here, right?
