    That's what they said about shall-issue-CCW. Didn't happen.

    Said the same about allowing people to carry in bars in some states. Hasn't happened.

    Said the same about the "Make my Day" law in Florida (extending Castle Law to almost everywhere).... no bloodbath.

    when I was in college they were good guys.

We get a knock on the door and its the campus cops. The Sgt holds his nose and said-DO YOU BOYS HAVE ANY UNREGISTERED SPACE HEATERS OR STOVES. no sir I said. the other cop said CARRY ON BOYS and left. Campus cops were generally pretty cool and did a good job since it was considered a plumb job. The New Haven cops weren't bad, most of them were the cousins or brothers or dads of the local guys who were football players-Yale tended to get the cream of the crop of the local football talent and like the cops many were of Italian extraction.

    That will really make the frat parties interesting. Nothing like mixing booze, ecstasy, pot, LSD, shrooms and guns.

    when the first couple states decided to change their laws and have SHALL ISSUE laws, Sawah Bwady and the rest of her hand wringing ninnies crapped themselves constantly over the new laws howling about blood in the streets. At first I suppose someone could excuse that crap because there was no real empirical data. but then when state after state passed such laws these twits kept the same nonsense up and by the time Ohio passed its law over RINO Boob Taft's Veto, the anti gun nutjobs were flat out lying. That the news media never hammered the ninnies was proof enough of how biased big news in big cities is.

    The same thing happened when the moronic clinton "assault weapon ban" died from sunset--Brady Sugarman and other such scum got plenty of air time about OK Corral shootouts--of course when those claims proved as dishonest as the CCW rants, the gun haters lies were not given any thrashings by the Katie Courics of the world

    Most college students are underage for drinking.


    It is not the American way, to take away the rights of the law-abiding majority because of some who are breaking the law.

    Ban booze on campus.... oh that's right, it is mostly banned already.... okay ENFORCE it then. Hahahahahahaha.... most colleges don't want to, they're afraid enrollments would decline. Guess we know who really cares about their students.... 'cuz booze is what college is ABOUT, right?

    Also in that article:

    The evidence does NOT support the claim that CCW laws reduce crime. Numerous academic studies by respected researchers (including the University of Chicago and Johns Hopkins University) have systematically criticized the methodology and faulty conclusions of studies cited by gun rights advocates as proof that CCW laws reduce violent crime.5 Studies published by the Stanford Law Review and the Journal of Trauma concluded that there is no statistical evidence that CCW laws reduce crime. The studies found that the adoption of such laws generally will increase crime. 6 In addition, a 2005 National Academy of Sciences report found that there is no evidence to support the claim that CCW laws have a causal link to crime rate reduction.7

    I've noted this before, so i though a little preemption might avoid this coming up.

    Anyway, do a search, and you'll find links to law enforcement across the contry opposing such laws.
    The official position of the Chicago Police Department is dictated by the Mayor of Chicago, so that's certainly no surprise. I heard a Chicago copper on the radio the other day say that the majority of them think it's a good idea. 'Course that means nothing in the scheme of things, since it may not even be true.

    Looks to me like the Chicago PD could use some help. Innocents aren't droppin' like flies from accidental shootings by licensed gun owners in right-to-carry states. I'm inclined to think I'd rather take my chances.
