  1. Controlled tobacco use is important. Equally important, ask Columbine parents, is controlled flying bullet use. Is this officer armed and ready to address the potential campus killing issue, especially since our citizens, students and police successfully defused 3 separate near fatal mass killing threats in the last 12 months? [one individual was found with a gun, 2 switch blades and a malfunctioning, home~built bomb]
