    More BS--when states started passing CCW license laws the brady thugs and others claimed there would be blood in the streets. It didn't happen. When Bush and the GOP congress let the idiotic clinton gun ban expire, the brady scum said there would be blood in the street. Didn't happen. 21 year olds get CCW licenses and don't shoot people in malls, crowded traffic lanes, sports events, etc. I guess you haven't figured out it is illegal under federal law for TEENS to buy handguns or handgun ammo and you cannot get a carry license in every state I am aware of until you can buy a handgun legally which is 21

    that is why I have a hard time taking you seriously when you make huge errors like that

I am completely against guns being allowed on any school campus because of the biological/brain structure issue.

    And I have a hard time taking you seriously when you have no understanding of adolescent psychology or brain development and how it affects these behaviors in these situations. You don't seem to be able to understand this impact on the culture and society of a school campus. All your CCW or pro-gun BS doesn't dent any of that. When you get some understanding of the things I mentioned, let me know.

    And for the record, I am not anti-gun, but understanding the psychology and development of the human brain in this age group in the sociological atmosphere of what we are discussing, I reject allowing guns in this one area... on a school campus.

    This teacher has zero to do with what I was discussing. She was obviously mentally unbalanced and her behavior should have no impact on whether or not someone of her age should be allowed to carry a gun. Hers was an isolated incident that cannot be traced to biology or psychology of the human species. No one in a similar position to her should be restricted from carrying a gun because of her actions.

    LOL I am laughing at the crap you spew. YOu are making stuff up and you have made major errors. Teenagers being able to get CCW licenses pretty much branded you as uncredible in this discussion. And Having been involved in DOZENS of major felony cases I have never heard someone successfully float the BS you spew as mitigation for a 21 year old being excused for murder robbery, felonious assault or drug dealing.

    If your nonsense had a basis in fact we would see 21 year old CCW holders having higher rates of malfeasance than thirty year olds. Guess what-NO EVIDENCE EXISTS TO SUPPORT THAT Supposition.

    BTW are you a PhD in psychology or are you just parroting studies you read someplace?

    Re: 3 Dead in Shooting at University of Alabama Campus

    You have to be 21 to have a CCW, therefore any discussion of CCW holders carrying firearms on any campus automatically precludes teens from the discussion.

    I'm not sure if that's true. People tend to look at the past with rose colored glasses, often remembering it as a time much more idyllic than it was. Furthermore, in America we seem to fall in this trap of remembering "the past" as the 50's postwar "Leave it to Beaver" experience while ignoring some pretty brutal times in our history, like the 20's and 30's. In honor of the day, I would like to bring up the Valentine's Day massacre as an example.

    Apparently all the gun control laws failed.

    Therefore it's time for a change away from the tired old policies of the past, and towards a more effective way of dealing with our problems as a community.

    Do you have a suggestion?
