Killings at Virginia Tech, killings at Northern Illinois State University, and killings at The University of
Alabama-- will your University be next? But killings at The Appalachian School of Law were stopped
quickly BEFORE the police arrive. With these deadly facts as reality, past research shows that the
nationwide economic downturn and recession has caused cities and governmental organizations to lay off
police and law enforcement personnel. Even prisons are being shut down! Likewise research analysis has
shown the impact on business safety resulting from the recession. There are fewer jobs, less money, less
police/law enforcement, less prisons, and more crime. More firearms are being purchased by members of
the business community and citizens in general. Layoffs of police impact college and university
communities who have always relied on local police and law enforcement to assist in the security
challenges faced by the University community. The research following details options for continued
campus safety in an age of police and law enforcement layoffs. Options vary from doing NOTHING to
turning the University into an armed camp!!! Constitutional rights of the Second (2nd) Amendment are
discussed in the context of community and university safety. The dynamics of 2nd Amendment
constructionism are analyzed.
