34. That question came up at a recent meeting with college administrators and faculty.

There was a vice president for academic affairs, an asst. vice president, a dean of liberal arts, two English faculty member, the head librarian, and the institutional researcher.

Three of them shot guns regularly for recreation/training, three owned guns because they were family owned but rarely shot, and only one of them didn't own or shoot guns.
