    Hello from Iowa

    I recently obtained a concealed carry permit and bought a Glock 26 largely because of the increasing violent behavior and threats by some students at the college where I taught mathematics - I'm recently retired and moved from Colorado. The administration would do nothing about it because they are more concerned with these student's "Due Process" than the employee's and other student's safety. I stumbled across this forum while searching for information on CCW. My other weapons are an AR15 for home defense and a CZ 452 .22 for varmint control (I live in the country). I enjoy target shooting and used to shoot competitively.

    I obtained the CCW permit and retired in part because I could foresee another school shooting at my school. It hasn't happened yet but it is infuriating when administration types are more concerned about being sued for kicking someone out of school for making threats than they are about the very real possibility of someone making good on a threat.

    Sorry for the long-winded post but I'm pretty angry about the head-in-the-sand attitude our society seems to have about the rights of trouble makers. I know no one can guarantee safety but I believe a little proactive kick in the backside at a young age might go a long way toward preventing the escalation of the violent and antisocial behavior we see so much of these days.
