Skip to comments.For some idiots, there just aren't enough guns on university campuses

American universities are places of art and music, gleaming labs and fine old buildings, famous libraries and fancy football stadiums, old traditions and new thinking, beauty, youth and brains about everything you could want. Except guns. Apparently, there just aren't enough guns in those ivy-covered halls.
Never fear: second amendment fundamentalists mean to correct what they see as the sad paucity of weapons on campus. In Florida, a gaggle of true believers calling themselves Florida Carry busies itself arguing that institutions of higher learning have no right to ban guns on their taxpayer-funded property. I mean, why wouldn't you want to pack heat in a class like Organic Chemistry II? Florida Carry's attack is gradual: last year they prevailed in a suit to let students at the University of North Florida stash guns in their cars; this year, they're aiming to force the University of Florida to allow its 50,000 students to keep guns in their dormitories.
Genius! Imagine: students living six to a hutch, hopped up on Red Bull, vodka, stress, lust, Adderall, Spicy Chipotle BBQ Doritos, MIA and Grand Theft Auto 5. Now add a few .38s and maybe a deer rifle or two. The stakes in those passionate late-night debates over the origin of the universe suddenly get a lot higher.
Of course, Florida is no stranger to gun controversies. George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin for walking while hoodied....

And knee-jerk liberal idiot sheeple cannot recognize the difference between a criminal with a gun and an honest citizen with a gun.
And the funny thing is, that group thinks they're geniuses.
Manchester? lol. What’s next? Condemnation from Timbuktu?
Funny how there used to be all sorts of guns on campus and nothing like what the author’s overworked imagination has produced ever happened. I’m guessing Professor Roberts’ field isn’t history.
I don’t know who this idiot professor is, but teaching at Florida State Un., says a lot about her (check out stories about crime down there, jihadist/CAIR activities, etc).
So she calls Jews for the Preservation of Gun Rights “nuts”. Perhaps she should read a little history of, say, Germany, 1930’s.
It is people like her who allowed the Holocaust to occur.
Thanks Diane. My relatives who died in Auschwitz and Belzec curse you forever!

I have a very nice snub nose S&W that I like to carry when I am wearing a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. It doesn't profile as much as the Colt 1911 and has much more stopping power than the Erma Excam .22 I "bought for my wife."
They sound a little under-armed to me. Not even a carbine?
Too bad about them all going overboard in that “fishing accident” huh?
Incrementalism cuts both ways. We’re rolling back years of left-wing social policy one court victory at a time, which results in screeds like this. Sweet.
Joe would recommend a shotgun, wouldn’t he?
Just can’t say it better than that, guy!
My wife carries a pair of 38s. And she has a really big gun, too.
Pull yourselves together, libs. You're getting deranged.
Yeah, that’s what I thought. She doesn’t even write very well.
What, you don't strap the big gun in the family?
Diane, you are either a liar or a moron. Which is it?
