After attack, gun control views split
* GAINESVILLE RESI-
By BRITTANY DAVIS
After police confirmed
Monday night the deaths of
31 Virginia Tech students and
two professors, members of the
Gainesville community began
to debate campus gun control
Department spokesman Jeff
Holcomb said UF's policy is
simple: Guns aren't allowed.
UF's policies for concealed
weapons are consistent with
Florida laws, which prohibit
weapons in schools, political
buildings or sporting events.
While many agree this
policy keeps gun-related deaths
to a minimum, others said the
VT murders could have been
prevented if a victim had car-
ried a concealed weapon.
Michael Baker, an instructor
at the Gainesville Target Range,
labeled universities like VT
"victim disarmament zones."
He said the concealed weap-
ons laws in Virginia are similar
to those in Florida moderate.
But he believes more lenient
laws could help save lives.
In January 2006, a Virginia-
House Bill that would have
allowed licensed students to
bring guns to school was -de-
"If one person, one person
had "been armed ... it would

dents support Baker's view-
Anthropology senior Joey
Caltabellotta said those who
want to commit crimes will find
ways to get guns, leaving law-
abiding citizens defenseless.
"After a thorough back-
ground check and multiple lev-
els of clearing, people should
be able to have a concealed
weapons permit to be able to
protect themselves in situations
just like this," he said.
But journalism senior
Jamison Webb said stricter laws
would prevent people like the
VT gunman from buying them.
"I'm personally for tighter
regulations," he said.
However, the law has limi-
tations, Webb said. He said he
understands that people have
a right to bear arms, but pre-
venting crimes boils down to

UF prof: Mass murderers often fit type
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Contributing Writer
After all the facts of the Virginia
Tech massacre are revealed, after time
lines and visual recreations are paraded
through the news, after memorials are
held and personal stories are tearfully
told, one question will remain.
There may never be a clear answer,
but Ronald Akers, a UF criminology pro-
fessor who has dedicated his career to
studying social crime and deviance, said
other similar cases may provide clues.
He said people who commit these
types of crimes are not usually psychotic
or mentally ill.
People want to think such a person is
crazy because it's the only explanation
that makes sense, Akers said.
In most cases, he said, the attacker has
a predisposition to anger, and a trigger
makes that person snap.
"My prediction is that once we find
out more about this guy, we'll find out
that this is not out of character," he said.

UF criminology professor
Authorities identified the shooter
Monday as Cho Seung-Hui, a 23-year-
old English major from South Korea. He
was described by peers as a quiet misfit,
according to the Associated Press, and
was encouraged to get counseling be-
cause a teacher was disturbed by some
of his creative writing in English class.
News reports said he may have been
treated for depression, was becoming
increasingly violent and left a note in his
room that expressed anger toward "rich
kids" and "deceitful charlatans."
Akers said the type of person who
commits a violent crime is willing to
push people around, shout or get angry
to get attention.
Their motivation is to be noticed and
respected, or to get revenge, he said.
"It's a pattern of reward," he said.
They can make people do whatever they
want they can make people afraid.
Akers said Cho had probably "gone
off the deep end" before.
"This time he went deeper than ever,"
In general, the more educated the
person, the less likely he or she is to be
violent, which is why it's strange to see a
college student behave in that way, Akers
said. But depression may play a role.
Akers said student stresses, like ex-
ams, could have a dangerous effect on
someone who's unstable.
"Don't ever let yourself get isolated
with these stressers," he said.

Volunteer groups scooped the ice cream, and charities

It's inspiring when a large national company take a break

Corporate social responsibility is the idea that organizations,
especially corporations, should consider the interests of their
employees, customers, shareholders, communities and the en-
vironment in their operations.
That means companies shouldn't think just about their profit
line, but about the world around them what a novel idea!
Ben & Jerry' is a leader among socially responsible corpora-
tions and its Free Cone Day shows that.
Not only does the company give back to the community, it
is also a friend to the environment. The company produces 32
percent.fewer pounds of carbon dioxide per gallon of ice cream,
compared to 2002. Over the course of five years, that adds up to
about 22,400 tons of carbon emissions the company has offset.

We must not let t
W e live in a crazy world. Every day, we're bom-
barded with stories of violence and sorrow.
In some corners of the globe, people are
fighting meaningless wars. In other parts, people wither
away because they lack access to life's basic essentials.
Even here, in- a country we think of as relatively safe,
we've seen what twisted individuals can do.
It's difficult to look at all this and believe the world
isn't headed to hell in a handbasket. Sometimes we
have every reason to board up our houses, gather some
rations and spend the rest of our lives huddled in base-
ments, waiting for the next bomb to go off.
But we can't live in fear. Events like the Virginia Tech
shootings and other atrocities we witness have a way of
making our mortality seem all too obvious, and that's a
scary thing. It's disturbing when you realize how fragile
life is and how easily it can be taken away.
The common response to this is to try our best to
hide, or to seek protection from anyone willing to give
it. We take our fears to our brethren, leaders and reli-
gions with hope that something can protect us. Sadly,
this doesn't always work.
I've always thought disaster can bring out the best
and the worst in people. The problem is, while we
see the best first, we have to deal with the worst long
afterward. After the mourning is over, disaster invari-
ably leads to bickering and finger-pointing about what
should have been done to prevent it.
That kind of thing doesn't help anyone. It hurts us as
a whole and divides us. Think back to the days before
Sept. 11. Would you say we were a more unified or less
unified country then? I'd say more.
But suddenly, we have a disaster, and everyone is

afraid. In our fear, we make rash
decisions, which ultimately lead
to bad results. And now we're
unsure about how to reel our-
selves back in.
We've just witnessed the larg-
Dan Burroughs est mass shooting in U.S. history.
email@example.com Where do we go from here?
We know it won't be as simple
as honoring the dead and mov-
ing on. People will argue about violence and gun con-
trol. Some "expert" will say it wouldn't have happened
had we been doing this or that.
And we'll all be told for the billionth time we should
be afraid. After the Columbine shooting, we were told
to be afraid of the weird quiet kid. After Sept. 11, we
were told to fear the Arabs. After watching the daily
news, we have to be afraid of nearly everyone in our
Human beings are not meant to live like that. Let's
confront this disaster, and the ones that will inevitably
follow, as reasonable people should. We can't change
what happened, but there's no reason to allow this to
tear apart our society, just as every other disaster has.
There is no reason for us to ponder how our biology
classes can turn deadly.
We shouldn't expect anthrax in the dining halls. And
you shouldn't suspect that the angry emo kid down
the hall from you is a gun-toting lunatic. Never again
should a disaster mean fear and confusion. Let it now
mean simply healing and repairing.

hopes it will become a tradition.
"(Machen) loved getting to spend

"Academic Enhancement Program."
The forum, he said, would serve
as the student body's direct time with

Freshmen offered new class

Sleep is the first thing to go.
Then green vegetables disappear, and
pizza starts replacing too many meals.
By the end of their first year in college,
many students are living unhealthy lives
because they've stopped making good deci-
sions about their well-being.
To help incoming freshmen avoid this fate,
the Dean of Students Office is collaborating
with GatorWell Health Promotion Services to
offer a new section of First-Year Florida an
introductory course for freshmen taught by a
UF faculty member and peer leader dur-
ing summer B.
The GatorWell Freshman Experience will
be similar to the general sections of First-Year
Florida. However, GatorWell's new section
will focus on health and general well-being.
"I've taught general sections of First-
Year Florida since 2003," said Tina Baker, a
GatorWell employee who will teach the new
course. "This is a cool way to make it more

same things will still be done but in a differ-
Students who enroll in the course will
gain a sense of how to-nurture physical,
mental and spiritual health, and an under-

Wibeto, the assistant director of new student
programs for DSO.
"Being healthy is more than just
nutrition and going to the gym."
The curriculum will focus on the acronym
BELIEFS, which stands for body, emotions,
livelihood, intelligence, environment, friends
and family, and spirit.
"Being healthy is more than just nutrition
and going to the gym," Baker said. "That's
part of it, but there are a lot of other things.
All of those different things are a part of
health that don't necessarily get as much

Students form the shape of a ribbon Tuesday afternoon on the North Lawn as a part of an event
organized by the UF organization Get Carded. The group gave out free T-shirts and pizza to students
who signed up to be organ donors.

Alligator Contributing Writer
A crowd of UF students in
bright green T-shirts huddled in a
seemingly formless group Tuesday
on the North Lawn and raised their
smiling faces toward the sky.
But from the top of the Constans
Theatre it was clear the line of
students was formed in the shape
of a ribbon.
More than 50 people posed for
the "Living Green Ribbon" photo to
raise awareness for tissue and organ
donation. The event was organized
by the student group Get Carded.
The event, which featured free
T-shirts, pizza and prizes, cost be-
tween $750 to $1,000, Buckley said.
The money came from the Florida
Coalition on Donations.
.During the event, which took
place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., about 80
uniform donor cards were given out
and about 15 people signed up to
become tissue and organ donors.
According to the information
card given out, more than 27,000
lives were saved last year thanks to
organ donations. However, about
90,000 people in the United States
still wait for organ transplants.
Monica David, a public relations
senior and a Get Carded member
who participated in the event, said
the organization's main purpose is
to gain support for organ and tissue
donation and to educate students,
professors and UF faculty about its

David had a kidney transplant

"An organ donation is a life-

could ever give to someone."

which students could post messages to show they were safe.
At UF, students created groups like "Gators Praying for Those at
Virginia T&h," and "UF Supporting VT." They also replaced their
profile pictures with weeping Gators head symbols and the slogan,
"Today, we are all Hokies!"
UF sophomore Emily Hendel said Facebook should collect
donations of $1 for the victims instead of offering its usual $1 gifts.
She posted her idea on one of the larger groups, which had 9,390
members as of Tuesday night. Though her idea received support
from other students, it didn't come to fruition.
When UF freshman Julie Shaffer couldn't call her more than 40
VT friends on her cell phone, she used Facebook and, later, AOL
Instant Messenger to connect with them. Though she didn't know
any of the victims personally, the Virginia native had competed in
high school against Mary Read, one of the slain students.
"This is bigger than Virginia Tech," she said.
"I can't do anything for them here in Gainesville.
All I can do is pray for them and be there in spirit."
Before the sun set Monday, thousands of students had joined
memorials for the slain students.
Ryan "Stack" Clark, a VT resident adviser, was killed while in-
vestigating the shooting at the West Ambler Johnston Hall, a dorm.
Clark was memorialized in at least five groups. One of the largest
had 658 members as of Tuesday night.
Chris McCollough, a Louisiana State graduate student and a for-
mer VT undergraduate, called Clark a "go-getter." McCollough said
he met Clark when both were officers in the university band, where
Clark earned his nickname. McCollough said he watched Clark
evolve from a student who didn't know who he was to a driven
double-major and a friend to many. When he heard of Clark's death
Monday afternoon, McCollough was devastated.
"It was like the world was missing something," he said.
McCollough said the outpouring of support from Facebook
users has been encouraging. He said observing his dead friend's
profile has allowed him to connect with people he wouldn't have
The memorial walls also drew comments from well-wishers
nationwide. One group, titled "Pick a Hokie," called for Facebook
users to comfort individual survivors.
Another group called "A tribute to those who passed at the
Virginia Tech Shooting" had more than 12,600 posts and 181,700
members from across the United States as of Tuesday night.
Shaffer, the UP freshman, was one of about 2,400 UF students
who joined the group "Gators Praying for Those at Virginia Tech."
She said Facebook allowed her to lend support to victims she could
not physically console.
"I can't do anything for them here in Gainesville," she said. "All
I can do is pray for them and be there in spirit."

At night, Cardillo and her roommate went to Blockbuster

Cardillo arrived at the Cassell Coliseum a 10,000-seat center

all crimes committed by juveniles
were committed by blacks, ac-
cording to statistics compiled by
the Office of the State Attorney.
The same study shows black
students are almost twice as likely
as their white counterparts to skip
school classes, and almost 90 per-
cent of crimes involving firearms
were committed by blacks.
In 2006, 159 students passed

Gainesville's connections to VT bring tragedy home
Student remembers two killing sprees VT alumnus receives sympathy

A Virginia Tech student killed
32 people and himself on the

In 1990, Danny Rolling killed
five Gainesville college students
over five days and left the city
terrified until he was charged

was stunned at what he saw on
TV: At least 20 students dead.
"You figure that there's no
way that they can have that num-

As he watched things unfold,
he thought about the Gainesville

Faehn excited for reunion

The NCAA Championships will double as a
reunion for UF coach Rhonda Faehn.
The Gators' No. 1 gymnastics team (21-0-1)
will travel to Salt Lake City, Utah, next week for
its final competition.
While in Utah, Faehn will be united with two
programs that shaped her gymnastics world.
On Monday, it was announced that UF will
compete in Session 1 along with Southeastern
Conference foes Georgia and Alabama, as well
as Oregon State, Nebraska and Oklahoma on

served as an assistant coach there for four years
before making the trip south.
"I love (Nebraska coach) Dan Kendig,"
Faehn said. "He's absolutely wonderful to
work for when I was at Nebraska. I think we are
a little bit closely tied in with Nebraska because
it is a closer removal from that program. I love
going to competitions where
I have a tremendous amount
of respect for the head coach-
es and their programs."

Both of his parents also attended

how to handle the homecoming, he
shouldn't look any further than his
own coach, Pat McMahon.

off in McMahon's hometown of
Jacksonville in a game that drew

Nelson's strong season pushes her into ace role

of rest and relaxation.
Coach Tim Walton had other plans in
"whe was going to take the summer off
and go on vacation," Walton said. "But I

your vacation is going to be to get better,
