>of the Week: Student's Self-Defense Leads to University Disciplinary Action
>

>
>This week's outrage comes to us from Gonzaga University in Spokane, 
>Washington. There, two students living in an off-campus, 
>university-owned apartment were put on probation for the 
>"infraction" of displaying a legally-owned firearm to thwart a home 
>invasion by a convicted felon.
>
>According to a CNN article, on the night of October 24, students 
>Erik Fagan and Daniel McIntosh were in their apartment when there 
>was a knock on the door. Fagan told CNN affiliate KXLY in Spokane 
>that he opened the door and a stranger, who said he'd just gotten 
>out of jail, asked for $15. Fagan told KXLY he offered the man a 
>blanket and a can of food, but "didn't feel comfortable" giving the 
>man money because he was a stranger.
>
>"My gut instinct was telling me I wasn't going to be able to get 
>that door closed before he came through," Fagan said.
>
>As the man started coming through the door, Fagan said he yelled for 
>his roommate, McIntosh. McIntosh said he came to the door holding 
>his pistol. When the man saw the gun, the students say he turned and ran away.
>
>The story notes that all university housing is patrolled at regular 
>intervals by campus security, but this particular apartment complex 
>isn't gated, and secured key cards or codes are not required for entrance.
>
>The students called 911 and campus security. A short time later, 
>police captured the suspect, whom they identified as a six-time 
>convicted felon with an outstanding Department of Corrections warrant.
>
>If the story ended here, we'd have yet another example of how a 
>firearm was successfully used for self-defense against a dangerous 
>criminal without the firing of a shot. But the story continues.
