The Boise State University professor has a point, as his statement is in reaction to students being allowed to carry concealed weapons.

Greg Hampikian penned a Thursday opinion piece for the New York Times titled “When May I Shoot a Student?” The piece has gone viral in less than 24 hours, and is now being shared widely on Facebook and Twitter.

Hampikian, who heads the Idaho Innocence Project, is known for using DNA and other forensic evidence to defend Amanda Knox during her controversial 2011 murder trial in Italy.

The professor of biology and criminal justice at Boise State asks a simple question in his critical opinion piece: “When may I shoot a student?”
