    tacky beats having your brains blown all over your nice new King James Bible because some asshole figured lots of people think like you and the local church is going to be full of unarmed targets

Right now, I do not teach where guns are allowed...signs are posted and so far...no incidences. I have been teaching in college since 1999. It could easily be said, no incidences no guns...just like the Colorado argument.

    Except that almost all mass murders have been committed in places where guns are banned... demonstrating the ineffectiveness of the whole viewpoint.




    Namely that this never happens:

    Yeah because that's likely to happen. Run the odds.

    Again, hire a guard if you're so concerned

    We're packing because there is a risk of things like Charleston AME happening in this world, and we don't want our bretheren or selves massacred by some hateful looney.

    And an armed guard in the sanctuary is less offensive because.... ?

    1) having a gun and not needing one causes you no problems

    2) needing a gun and not having one is the mistake hundreds of victims did not live to regret

    why should I hire a guard when I am an expert level shooter.

    And that, ladies and gentlemen is why I posted this earlier in this thread:

    Actually, I'm pretty confident that by many years and many students, I have more knowledge and experience with college students and their environment than anyone else here at DP. This is what I mean about your leaping to conclusions.

    Because I posted "My decision to own a gun affects only me...," you assumed that I am a gun owner, one you found disturbing because I'm a blowhard paranoid. I don't own a gun. Now you're going to spout inane generalizations about macho frat daddies and how gun owners come in all shapes and sizes because you've had a couple of nurse gigs on a college campus? Spare me. Oh, and don't patronizingly call me "hon" either.

    Please. Just don't.
    Did I call you hon? I don't believe I did. Actually I ignored you in this thread until the point I could not stop myself from responding. From now on, I won't respond to you at all...I hope you do the same. Just another nasty older woman on a forum. That is too bad.
