The tragic shootings on the Virginia Tech campus, in which a student killed 32 people and wounded 25 others before committing suicide, occurred nearly five years ago.
Since then, some states and their universities, including Mississippi, have thought about changing their on-campus gun laws. The thought is that a law-abiding person carrying a firearm could have a positive effect in a situation like a school shooting.
