USA – -(Ammoland.com)- The concept of allowing those with a concealed carry permit to carry their guns on campus is getting a lot of press lately, mostly because it drives gun-hating academics crazy.
Here’s my take on a few of the many anti-gun shibboleths hurled at the idea of campus carry:
There will be shootings over minor disputes and drunken students shooting up the campus: This is likely a case of anti-gunners projecting their own college behavior onto others. I smile at this one, because it reminds me of some people I knew in college who are now anti-gun progressives.
You remember them too? They were the ones who put good times and intoxicants ahead of getting an education. Of course, if this view of college students as violent drunks is accurate, it brings into question the concept of making a liberal arts education available to all – not exactly a progressive line of thought.
