    I had guns in my dorm rooms during the '60s and again in the mid '70s and never had a problem. Of course they were well hidden and no one knew. ��

    yes. They are old enough to serve in the Military, what turns them into knuckle dragging idiots when they step on a college campus?

    I work on a college campus and while we can carry concealed "on campus", we cannot carry inside buildings. I work in a very visible building that sees lots of foot traffic from general public as well and there is a real need for protection.

    At very least faculty/staff like myself with CWP should be allowed to carry inside buildings.

    So yeah, for the 30% or so of students on campus that are legally old enough, they shouldn't lose a right in the pursuit of knowledge.

    For those of us visiting a college campus, I see no justification for the banning of a concealed weapon that is otherwise being legally carried.

You and the other admins of other sites try to generate conversation which means revenue for you and your company. You and your cohorts are trying to make this forum into a side show.

    Yes, I follow you and the admins on the other forums you have bought. Do not even try to to hide the fact that is what you are doing. It is. It is plain to see and easy to prove.

    Cricket, for example, with her starting the stupidest threads on Woodworking Talk. Need I go further. Yes, you will still make revenue. But anyone with half a brain can see where you are going with this tactic.

    Why do you not just be an admin and sit on the sidelines and let the members decide what topics they want to start.

    You guys are doing this crap on every forum yo have bought. This is NOT Facebook or twitter.

    Thank you for your time
    Suntzu, I have always admired your honesty.

    This reminds me of a joke I recently saw on Facebook, slightly modified, about why genuinely honest people don't get hired:

    Interviewer: "What do you consider to be your greatest weakness?"

    Applicant: "My honesty."

    Interviewer: "I don't think honesty is a weakness."

    Applicant: "I don't give a crap about what you think."

    Gun Free Zones = Target Rich Environments.

    Gun Free Zones are unconstitutional.

    When 2A was drafted, learning how to use a gun properly was probably part of EVERY kid's "curriculum".
    Times change, and the number of kids that are raised around guns shrinks daily.

    Those changing times have also brought about many court decisions on what the amendments "cover" as things have cropped up that were never DREAMED of when the BOR was drafted.

    Perhaps it's not a terrible idea that people can demonstrate that they have half a clue BEFORE they get a gun (keeping in mind all the instances of accidental discharge by people who handled a gun before they had any idea what they were doing).
    I'm OK with a Dr. requiring training before (s)he can pick up a scalpel to remove that bullet. Maybe some training for the person pulling the trigger ain't so bad.

    My friend owns a restaurant that is a gun-free zone.
    Can you explain how that is "unconstitutional"?

    Yep. Along with a complete chain of command to tell you what to do with it. Not to mention, the conditioning required to make one into a soldier/sailor, something keggers on the weekend don't exactly accomplish.

    so those of us in Constitutional Carry states should be required to get on your "list" in order to carry on college campuses?

    Please explain a little further.

    My right to free speech shall not be infringed upon.
    Does that mean I can go into a theater and shout "fire" at will?

    A person's right to private property shall not be infringed.
    Does your simple explanation mean a person cannot set the rules for what does and does not occur on their private property?
    If I allow you on my land, am I allowed to kick you off my land if you start exercising your right to free speech by proselytizing about the KKK?

    Oh NO!!! Blood in the hallways. Every cafeteria food fight will end in a mass shooting.

    I took night classes at the University of West Florida 17 years ago. They had problems with a rapist running around campus so the bookstore started selling whistles and had us all walk in groups when we left class at 11:00 p.m. We weren't allowed to have a weapon on campus - not even secured in our vehicle. I couldn't carry a weapon when I was going to have class that night. It was all BS. Hundreds of thousands of Floridians carried weapons just off campus and less than .004% of them ever committed a firearms-related crime. The liberals running the schools thought that we would become crazed gunmen as soon as we got on campus.

    Are there some places that should be gun free zones? Why? Why not?
    No where should be a come kill me zone .
