    Not on campus, in class.

    Wait...so your contention is that on campus, in class adults who choose to carry a weapon will be playing with it?

    Nope. Someone might some time, but not as a rule. But they don't bring their tvs to class at all.

    They don't need to, not if they have iphones or Droids and ****. Plus people bring their handhelds a lot too.

    I don't allow them out, as they have no purpose in class.

    You don't allow them out eh? Well maybe if you're teaching at a high school you can almost have that much control. At university, freshmen/sophmore level you have none of that.

    You say you teach and such at a dangerous school and that your observations of the students leads you to believe that allowing guns on University campus is a bad idea. What level of education are you teaching at?

    That's not true. I teach and have taught at that level and they are not allowed in class. They are turned off and put away. Now, the phone function has a purpose, so they are allowed on campus, but not for use in the classroom.

    This is a popular video among college professors:

    When I taught at the second most dangerous college campus in America it was at a four year private college in Mississippi. I taught there for two years. As bad as it was, no ever used or felt the need for a gun that I ever heard tell of.

    I am now department chair at a community college. And they will fight hard not to allow guns on campus, arguing just what I have argued with you, and with the backing not only of the police but the safety experts we had train us after VT. You have to understand that despite a lack of studies, reasonable people have thought about and see a logic you don't. Now we can demean them I suppose, but I suggest you might look at what is being argued.
