    Proud of my wife's answer

    My wife just took the position of director of the library at a university here in Colorado. The head of campus security paid her a visit and they were discussing several topics, including "active shooter". He said since campus carry is legal here in Colorado they worried about someone "cowboying" and that they knew there were 26 faculty and staff with CCWs.

    The wife looked him in the eye and said "27".

    Outstanding! And something every state should have!

    It's ridiculous to think that any more than a small minority of responsible students and staff are going to carry in the first place.

    The old tired line that everyone and their brother is going to be carrying guns and shootings going on everywhere is absurd. It has never proven out and is the same old line the anti's spout to shoot down the possibility of campus carry.

    With a wife with that attitude, you have to be a 'happy camper'.

    Good witty response, but maybe she should've just said nothing or maybe scold him for generalizing true Americans.

    I bet the look on his face was priceless

    I am slowly working on my wife. She now has me leave my HD pistol where she can access it when I am out. It has been a long way from not even wanting to look at a gun.

    Why would she need to carry? We all know campus security will protect everyone. Just look at the fine job they did protecting people at the University of Texas, Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois University to name a few.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    Thats a keeper! Why do people insist that law abiding citizens having a gun is an issue? The criminals do it, shouldnt the odds be at least even? Sorry for the rant, thought im sure none of you disagree

    Wonder if Virginia Tech's chancellor is concerned about CCW...

    Congrats to her.
