Don't assume anything. [/QUOTE]Assuming "a certain level of understanding of the world" is like my showing up to a fresh lot and assuming the foundation is finished. Boo Radley, you and I don't even have sewer or electrical ready. We're not ready for the curb and gutter, even, because we don't have a common plat plan for the township.
All agruments have assumptions. It is virtually impossible not to have some.
I guess it's equal then as I don't understand this coment.You asked, I answered. I don't see how this advanced your argument.
Speaking of assumptions, that is not a proven fact. Have you ever heard of the causal relationship (fallacy) error? You may want to look that up.Since guns lower the crime rate, gun-free-zones are public hazards and any property, public or private, who wishes to have a gun-free-zone should have to seek a permit from the State and show cause just like they do for any other public hazard.
Which has nothing to do with any pointed you're responding to.I try to spend all my free time with my 2 sons. Between class and work, I don't have time for drinking for the sake of drinking.
Besides, liquor isn't allowed on campus.
But keep in in context of our discussion. It speaks to maturity.That's a strong argument for banning alcohol from the campus. At Black Hills State University, we're not allowed to have liquor on the property, not even beer, ever. See, this is why it's erroneous to "assume a certain level of understanding of the world". We don't all have Boo Radley's life experiences. At BHSU, yes there are parties, but not out of control frat parties like you see in a teen movies. That's just hollywood. That's not real.
Personal experience is not conclusive, not for either of us, but it can give insight. A lot of people don't know the tool well as evidenced not only by personal exience, but by satisitics that show a large number of people hurting not criminals, but themselves.See, that proves my point against using personal experience again; I don't know the world from the side of a gurney as you do. I know the world from the grip of a hammer.
Yep. And there are likely to be more of them in school as they all haven't matured yet. Giving them guns is not wise to carry around at school is not wise.You just proved that A. accidents happen, and B. there are stupid people. Toss in alcohol and you have a perfectly safe learning environment, yes?
Alcohol only makes the problem worse. the problem is there even without the alcohol.Of course. Ban liquor, allow the firearm.
