Guns On Campus

Bryan Aguiar, faculty senate president at NorthWest Arkansas Community College, said he surveyed the college’s faculty earlier this year and found about 70 percent of respondents said they didn’t want guns on campus. About 40 percent of the college’s 491 faculty members participated in the survey, Aguiar said.

They mention the Aurora and Newton shootings, but they have no victims of a violent crime on the panel. I find this interesting.

Violent crimes are not normally committed by people with a concealed carry permits as they have undergone a significant background check along with training on how and when to use the weapon they chose to carry. I support the 2nd ammendment, but I also support extensive background checks for anyone obtaining a weapon, be it from a licensed gun dealer, at a gun show, from an individual or even before receipt of a weapon from an inheritance ie: grandfather dies and leaves a weapon to grandson. If you have nothing to hide you should not be afraid of a background check.

If you have nothing to hide you should be willing to undergo a full body cavity search next time you fly.

Your comment (Mr. Moneymyst) is appropriate for your avatar. I was a big Alfred E Newman fan when I was a kid, but then I grew up.
