I am a retired college administrator and you just have to understand that in colleges and universities the general attitude of those in control is well exemplified by the administrator who says, "what we have been doing is right" and that's why we will continue. Where reason and thinking is supposed to be the watchword, nothing could be further from the that. Just liberal thinking and raw emotion.

This was about the fairest video I've seen from CNN. This young man represented CCW'ers very well. The school admin also gave a great representation for the ...
One can CCW on any campus in Utah, that must account for all of the 'shootings' in Utah college buildings...

We Texans need to push for more changes in our laws, including the ability for CHLs to carry in schools and colleges/universities. It really sux that my wife has to keep her glock locked up in the car when she goes to class.

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
I'd almost move to Utah just for that reason.
A violent crime happens every 23.1 seconds..... something to think about.
Oh yea I did bring up the example of defense during a high school football game if necessary to my lawyer, that's where I got the info about the cases being thrown out by the Magisterial Offices and the DA offices.

Murderers will either be found out, or flushed out. No two ways about it. But, that's a good thing, 'cause such felons are there anyway and are almost certainly armed to the teeth in complete disregard to those pretty little signs.... people carrying on campus would only lead to more problems.
But that's hardly the only result. More "mines in the minefield" results in previously gun-free place becoming much riskier for felons, instead of the free-fire zone for criminals such places are today. Someone who was previously denied the ability to defend him/herself can now have an option with some likelihood of being effective when the chips are down. Hard to see that as anything but good.
Nice little video clip. It's good to see these subjects getting more play, in mainstream media. Not much, certainly, but every little bit can help. It's going to take an entire generation to change the mindset. Every little bit helps.
Not a bad interview. The former Marine was well spoken and made his points well. Like others I found the administrator's comments to be stupid. "I think it's best to continue what we've been doing." Well, what you've been doing has allowed the VT shootings, Columbine, etc. Those schools were guns are allowed (even in the parking lot) have not had the shooting incidents because they have been stopped. Nut job.
The young lady would be interesting to talk to in a non-challenging manner. Well, at least a non-rude manner. See what she is basing her opinion on.
