Eagleks, have you read that in an article somewhere? I have been looking for it for a few hours and there are a lot of what ifs, would have's, and could have's, but nothing about a permit holder in the theater.
Thank you Joel, that article will be very helpful.
As others have said, don't expect a good grade on your paper. Years ago when I went back to school to get a AAS Degree I had a ultra liberal instructor for the portion on speeches. I did a speech on Conceal Carry Permit Facts vs Myth. I received a C grade on the speech. He told me afterwords that it was a very good speech. Well researched, format was good, presentation was well done. Then he told me if I had chosen a "more appropriate subject" I would have gotten an A on it. When I ask him what he meant by more appropriate hes said "A subject I agree with".
Yes, I could have fought the grade, and probably won, but I didn't consider it worth the hassle. I passed the class with a C, which considering the fact that his and my thinking were polar opposite on most everything, I was satisfied with.
To be honest, I was surprised to even get a passing grade out of his class. This was pre 9/11. He was anti military as well. He started a class off with total BS about the military. When he said, "The only reason someone joins or stays in the military, is because they are too lazy and/or stupid to make it on the outside". I stood up in class, told him he was full of fecal matter, not in those words, and walked out of his class for the night.

Don't know if any of that hit 'print'. The Newspapers, are typically owned by syndicated companies that are a bit anti-, so I'm not sure they would include it as a result.
I don't understand how people are supposed to keep track of it in Colorado, when apparently cities have the ability to make CC illegal.
That sure creates a hodge-podge of laws and a mess to follow.

Bay County FL, December 15, 2010 - Bay County School Board Meeting
Bay County School Board Gunman Shoots Himself - YouTube
Here is a link to the video recording clip of the school bard meeting. There is a longer version. One female board member tried to take him out with her purse but was not successful.
Clay Duke, gunman who's wife lost her job with the school, showed up at the meeting to get satisfaction. Long story short, the school head of security(former LEO, Mike Jones) was in the building and saw what was happening on CCTV. Since FL prohibits carry on any school property, he had his revolver locked securely in his car across the street from school grounds. He rushed to his car, retrieved his gun and made his way back to the boardroom. The gunman had let everyone leave except for the board members.
In the video, after Duke takes shot at Superintendent Husfelt, Mike Jones opens fire from behind. I believe that Duke turned the gun on himself. If Jones had not had been there, He probably would have killed some if not all of the board members....
FYI.....Mike Jones is also known as Salvage Santa.... For the past umpteen years, he collects "junk bicycles" and rebuilds them all year in order to deliver them to less fortunate people around the community.
Also, the big binder in front of Superintendent Husfelt caught the first bullet. If the binder had not been there, he would have taken at least one bullet.
Mike Jones was not prosecuted since he was acting to save lives even though he was not legal to be carrying on school property.
Hope this helps!
great idea, I'm doing a papaer in managerial communications on what would happen if the 2nd ammendment was lost...its alwaus easy to write papers on stuff you're passionate about
I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
"I think it's fair to say that we believe guns don't belong in the classroom," Hincker said. "In an academic environment, we believe you should be free from fear."
Not the same exact thing you cited you were looking for, BUT it still may be useful anyway.
Virginia Tech's ban on guns may draw legal fire - Roanoke.com
Virginia Tech student was concealing a firearm to class and got caught. He had a CCL. This happened almost exactly 2 years before the infamous massacre. So it was well known VT frowns on students with defensive weapons. The quote is extremely ironic, why would a competent individual carrying a defensive firearm have a need for fear? Its when you have no means of protecting or defending yourself you have reason for fear.
VT, Columbine, Aurora Batman movie shooting, the recent NYC shootings, the pro-life shooting in DC, what do they have in common ? Citizens were denied the right to carry self-defense weapons, namely firearms. Too many victims to be mere coincidence that they happened in "gun-free zones".
Good luck with your paper. One of the English classes I took not too long ago, the prof. assigned us to write about things like gun control, death penalty, abortion,...basically the most controversial stuff she could come up with. I appreciated that over writing about a subject I don't care much about.

Question about Missouri gun laws. Does MO have a liability clause for private gun free zones? To clarify. Private business posts gun buster sign. You are not able to defend yourself and we're harmed.
Thank you to everyone who contributed, the paper turned out to be about double the minimum length and there was a lot I couldnt put in there but I thought it turned out pretty damn good. I got the paper back and my instructor agreed, it got an A+. If anyone is interested in reading it email or pm me and I'll send it.
