Yup. Get a lawyer. Fight on. If you need to, run screaming from Gonzaga. The NERVE!!
Maybe transfer to a saner school.
I can kinda sorta see the school’s fear and it’s tied, I believe, to lawsuit happiness. Since it apparently happened in a housing unit kept by the school, the school is worrying about the possibility of getting sued by someone shot by an occupant of the unit. Now in a saner age such a suit would get laughed off. But our new fangled “deep pockets” require, not just allow, some sufficiently rich party who is a minor co-defendant to stand the whole cost of an inflated lawsuit. One of the earlier ways liberalism went off the rails.
Also... the more we can get back to a rights-based view of keeping and bearing arms, perhaps the less opportunity there would be for such lawsuits to win. Because if the school can’t control the use of the guns, then it cannot be held liable for not having controlled them.
I was nearly at the point I was going to hire these folks...
...but I just got my degree and got the Hell out of there with sheepskin in hand. Actually, my one buddy pointed me to Levin... this was a long time ago... I dunno if he coulda helped or not, though.
Point is I got my degree, and I will never ever contribute one penny to that school, or the Alumni association... EVER.
I can definately empathize with these kids from Gonzaga. Any Gonzaga Alumni on here should take up the case for these kids and personally see to it that a hornets nest is stirred up and that the administration responsible for this violation of constitutional rights is fired. Money talks in these situations.
