Well, campus leaders here in North Carolina say they will review safety at our universities. We've had our fair share of violent incidents, but overall most admit it's nearly impossible to lock down an entire campus that's big.

Regardless, it's now going to be a big issue here. This afternoon, Attorney General Roy Cooper's office sent out this news release.

"Raleigh: Attorney General Roy Cooper and North Carolina college and university officials will hold a media availability on Wednesday April 18 at 2:00 PM to discuss next steps in campus safety in light of the recent tragedy at Virginia Tech University.

Cooper will be joined by University of North Carolina System President Erskine Bowles, UNC Board of Governors Chairman Jim W. Phillips, Jr., President of North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities Dr. Hope Williams, and North Carolina Community College System President Martin Lancaster."

We'll be there so stay tuned to find out what they think could work!
