It's good to know that right now you can't bring guns on campus.

That's why there have never been school shootings, you see.

obviously that reality exists.

but isn't there something in the constitution about military not being deployed stateside unless we're being invaded? i know, that doesn't apply to national guard, and thus, me directly, but still-

are all the reservists going to know who the other reservists are, necessarily? not everyone's gonna be in ROTC, or the same unit. (and if not, is having them wear some kind of identifying badge a solution? to this i will say -absolutely not-.)

when it comes down to it, i guess i'm saying that if this happens, my money will be on an increase rather than decrease of gun violence in the affected area. maybe i'm not going on anything more than gut feeling, but i have a gut feeling it's a bad idea.

Well, crime goes down whenever a must-issue law is passed. (Incidentally, that's why I support gun restrictions in places where the rich live. I like the idea of DC-style crime plaguing those who are robbing America blind)

That's with no identifying badges whatsoever on gun owners. Tell me, if you were a criminal, who would you rob: the San Francisco non-profit worker, or a West Texas rancher?

But that's not a gut feeling, that's statistics.

Being a gambling man though, I'm willing to take your bet, for the gentleman's sum of one beer.

I'm not sure that that guy should be allowed to live, much less breed.

you and I should do coffee or something while you are still in Seattle. I haven't seen you in years!
