    Guns have been legal on our campuses in general for quite some time. The only school which redesignated itself so it could ban guns is Boulder. Almost all other Colorado Universities allow guns and have allowed guns for some time. Now these are kids, right? Their brains are fully developed, right? With that many students over that long of a time period, we should have seen your senario work out a few times. This is a generalized argument you've made about it being more dangerous on campuses which allow guns. So why is it, in the dozen or so Universities in Colorado which allow guns, we haven't seen the breakdown? Why has your guess not become reality?

    You're calling for government force to be used. There can be reasonable restrictions, but with reasonable comes proof. I would say that you calling for restrictions based only on your assumptions and guesses is not reasonable. But rather biased.

    You may say that, but I'm going to try to make sure that people have the means to exert their force over the government should it ever need to be done.

    You may have been lucky so far. We'll see as it becomes more wide spread.

    If if's and buts were candy and nuts, we'd all have a merry christmas. I'm not looking for your guess, I'm looking for you to use numbers to back your call for continued government force against the rights and liberties of the individual.
    I have, with what numbers we have. You have suggested we have other numbers, but have presented none that I'm aware of.


    You're calling for government force to be used. There can be reasonable restrictions, but with reasonable comes proof. I would say that you calling for restrictions based only on your assumptions and guesses is not reasonable. But rather biased.
    Actually, I saying the school should decide. And government whould allow it. Schools appose it as much as anyone.

    Biased as much as anyone holding a position I would say.



    You may say that, but I'm going to try to make sure that people have the means to exert their force over the government should it ever need to be done.
    Good luck with that. I suspect you will need it should we ever get to that point.

    I understand your concern...

    Arming teachers/students is just putting a band-aid on all the moral failures of our country. Maybe we should concentrate on not needing the guns anymore. Do we really want to send the message to our kids that you have to have a gun to be safe, even at school?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but is this what you think?

    I would agree with that.

    College kids can barely handle a beer let alone a gun. College professors on the other hand, being so liberal probably won't put bullets in it.

    We took a vote here and all agreed we knew professors who shuld never touch a gun. And their politics wasn't even discussed.
