    So you're saying cars serve a purpose in the class room?

    No. And we don't bring one in the classroom. However, they do serve a purpose in getting to the school and home again. Guns serve no purpose on the college campus.

    Then please enlighten me. Out of the 270 million guns that Americans own, how many of those a year were involved in a murder, accidental shooting,suicides or serious injury? What is the percentage?

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That is false.Guns are used for self defense.

    What if I rode a skateboard everyday? When I take my seat, can't I just put it out of the way?

    Sure, absolutely. The car's purpose is for something outside of the classroom, but we need to bring it with us in order for it to be available when we're not in the classroom.

    The same thing over and over. But guns could indeed have a purpose on the college campus to stop assualts, rapes, robbery, etc. These things DO occur on college campuses across America.

    First, those don't happen to any real degree. The rapes are off campus, at parties and such. Not in the classroom, not in the library. You're making a problem where there isn't one. So no, it is not needed on campus.

    Not needed on campus. Nothing to defend yourself from. There is no real threat on campus.

    Leave it outside, off campus preferably.
