I wonder if this article would be written so one sided today. And Ms. McCall, you're right, most NYS Licensed Security Guards do not carry firearms, however, I'm assuming the author isn't aware or is completely ignoring the fact that the CUNY Department of Public Safety is a Law Enforcement agency which is comprised of NYS Peace Officers. Not only do they provide security services but they act as the law enforcement arm of CUNY, investigating crimes on and off campus for the sole purpose of protecting CUNY students and personnel. But that doesn't matter. What you'd rather is something horrible happen and then wonder, "why didn't CUNY prepare for this". In an institution devoted to learning, you people sure are stupid.
