    Re: Texas Senate approves guns in college classrooms

    So I just want to put this out there: Do they allow smoking? To be completely honest, I feel a lot safer having my neighbor smoke a cigarette than to think he's going to pull a gun on me.

    One of these days, you know what's going to happen: Someone with a permit is going to walk into a public place that they're allowed to carry in, go nuts and open fire. It's inevitable that it will happen someday.

    If one permit holder, out of millions, does this, does it repudiate the entire concept?

    Permit holders have demonstrated themselves to be more law-abiding and less likely to "go off" than the general public. I've published the stats on this site innumerable times.

    Yes.

    The commons sense says that since they're supposed to be adults they must be treated like adults.

    If, as you claim, they can't be expected to behave like adults, then should we not Amend the Constitution and adjust the voting age to that age in which you're comfortable in treating them like adults?

    What age would that be?

    In the eyes of the leftists, yes.

    But ten thousand broken condoms won't alter their view that wearing one during their routine anal probing makes them "safe".

    I'm more afraid of seconhand smoke than I am of getting shot by a licensed carrier.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    It will prove that only people without permits should be allowed to have guns?

    I've spent a LOT of time around HUNDREDS of CCW permit holders, while taking/conducting/assisting in classes. Haven't seen one have an accidental discharge yet.

    When I was a cop, there was a huge flap one time because four cops in my dep't had AD's within a period of about four months.

    Hmmm....
