Albany - The Police Chief at Albany State University says it's nearly impossible to stop someone from opening fire on a college campus. For one reason, installing metal detectors on every door of every building on a college campus is just too expensive for a school.

Police Chief David Perry says ASU is proactive with potentially violent students. Professors can alert police about any students who may be on edge or hostile in the classroom.

"If a students acts out violently, teachers can notify the us," said Chief Perry. "We can help these students seek stress counseling."

But, Chief Perry says if a gunman is willing to die, like the student at the University of Arizona, it is hard to stop them from hurting others.
