A bill to allow conceal carry on campus had passed the House in Idaho. That seems to me a good reason to make sure Buttercup goes to a local college instead of one that would make her defenseless. Of course, lots of people don’t see it that way and are freaking out saying everyone is going to start shooting each other.
Here’s a point we can’t make frequently enough: Conceal carry is no longer theoretical. There are 40 states with right to carry. There are plenty of campuses where conceal carry is currently allowed. That means you can’t just mouth off about what you think is going to happen when conceal carry is allowed in a new area. It doesn’t matter what you think is going to happen because there are plenty of real-world examples. We’ve had conceal carry for decades. If all the horrible scenarios gun control advocates dream up had any basis any reality, they should be able to point to tons of examples by now. So either point to a real world example to argue with or shut up.
Again, two options when arguing against conceal carry:
1) Point to an actual example of conceal carry leading to people shooting each other that you want to avoid.
2) Shut up and admit that your fears have never come true in reality and thus you have a poor understanding of human behavior which means its best you excuse yourself from all political discussions.
