Yes, I know that there is a contingent of folks who believe that any restriction of gun ownership is an attack on their liberty and constitutional rights, but guns on college campuses? When I was in college I could barely be trusted with choosing my major, let alone carry a firearm. So, despite the shocking amount of legislation that aims to ease gun restrictions on college campuses or forbid colleges from banning concealed weapons, I will simply choose to believe that most folks, even strong gun advocates, would not support policies that would allow students to carry guns on campus.
First up, false pretense. First up just because he’s an idiot doesn’t mean we all are (but “Progressives” always think they’re the upper echelon), but why are the guns different? I mean couldn’t he have stabbed somebody in his foolish youthful rage? Raped somebody? Swam to the bottom of the school pool and take a big deep breath? Of course, guns are different, because they are different. If we were to extend their “Logic” to real logic, College students can’t be trusted to leave their parents house, let alone live virtually unsupervised in dorms or off-campus housing!
Also note that just because you may have hit college just after high school, doesn’t mean everybody does. My Father-in-Law’s wife is graduating this December! It was a long-time wish of her’s, and we’re very happy for her. Also remember all those wars going on? This means colleges are flooded with 21+ Year old vets going to school on the GI bill. These are people who are trained and accustomed to carrying weapons.
There are a bunch of states where campus carry is indeed permissible…have there been a rash of shootings there? How about the schools that don’t allow carry? Oh yeah, those are the places where the shootings have happened!
If he were a thinking man, he’d probably want his daughter going to one of those “Scary” Schools that don’t worry about lawful carry…he isn’t.
