    Bad thing is, even if this "troubled soul" had taken his own life first, it's still a bad thing what those guns can do...

    I saw this on the news last night, and was truly saddened by it...

    This morning, on the way to work, the morning talk show that I listen to was discussing this, and other university shootings. The announcer said several times that it only took minutes for the officials to show up, and I couldn't help it - I had to call in. My first statement was this: When seconds count, Police are minutes away.

    I mentioned concealedcampus.org, and how important it is to allow citizens to defend themselves - whether they be students, campus security, professors, etc. The host disagreed with me, saying that he didn't feel that all students should be allowed to carry, but the campus police and the professors should. I told him that by abiding by that school of thought just cost the professor his/her life. If a person with ill intent enters a classroom, and knows that the professor has a weapon, guess who is going to get shot first? Then the rest of the students are just as defenseless as they are now.

    I did agree that ALL students should not carry. Let the universities hold an NRA (or other accredited organization) training course, and even go as far as a physc eval (for the purpose of on-school carry only).

    If a law abiding citizen is allowed to carry a gun off campus, they should be able to carry on campus.

    I finished by saying that Kennesaw GA, and Vermont have some of the lowest crime rates in the nation, becuase the people there are allowed to defend themselves - and on the flip side, look at Washington DC - a so-called gun free zone - has one of the highest crime rates in the US.

    The Host had to cut to break, so I didn't get his response - but after the break he had some callers that agreed and disagreed with me. And of course - one lady said it was all the fault of video game's... :)

    Or at least let us regular folks be prepared to help them along. I mean if you really want to die, pointing a gun at me is a good way to get it done.

    I second that.

    It's a shame more people don't exercise their rights. Maybe if they did we wouldn't have to fight so hard to keep them.

    Just how much longer are we going to have to put up with this &*^ before the lambs wake up! When will the people of Illinois wake up! I am so sadden by this. Here is a state that will not let you carry, and now there are a lot of families paying for it. GUN FREE ZONES DONT WORK. Restricting GUNS DON”T WORK. Lets keep the families of the victims in are prayers. SAD SAD DAY!

    Need some more feedback

    on the CNN comments section under the NIU shooting. The anti's are dominating the comments section with the usual platitudes and laments about terrible guns and too lax laws. Cruise by there and put in some carefully selected words of wisdom.
    Reality, DEAL with IT!

    At least South Dakota is on the right track when it comes to carrying on college campuses:

    Hopefully, this can get through and the momentum can be spread to other states.

    I put my $.02 in, but it hasn't been posted (big surprise). I have this feeling that the news sources are being deluged with pro-carry sentiment and choosing only to post the anti- stuff.

    Um...I don't believe it happened.

    I don't believe any of the school or council meeting shootings really happened.I,of course,mean no disrespect at all to the victims.But,let's face it.Those are gun-free zones.If gun-free zones work,then those terrible things did not happen.It's like the moon landing.It is not lawful to carry a gun in a gun-free zone,and gun laws work,so those things did not happen.If anyone wants to take this argument up with me,I will accept the challenge.Especially a congressman.But by doing so they will be admitting that gun-free zones do not work,that gun control does not work,and that they are,in fact counterproductive and cost lives and do not make us safer.When they insist that those terrible things did happen,consequently admitting those laws do not work,they are admitting responsibility of those who create these laws for the deaths of those victims.The challenge is out there.Any takers?
    I'm waiting.
    Give everybody guns.
