Unarmed. This particular Rowan University student, Donald Farrell, was murdered in an unprovoked attack. It was the fifth attack this fall and the second in eight days at Rowan. Most, if not all, of the attackers are ‘outsiders,’ meaning people from off campus, not students.
Update 11/03/07: I have come across a website that is quite relevant to the topic. The site name is Students For Concealed Carry On Campus. It is an organization of students, but you don’t have to be a student to join or support the organization efforts. They have 7,000 members so far. And some neat shirts.
