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!

She broadcasts regularly for the BBC and National Public Radio in America, and writes for newspapers such as the Washington Post, the New York Times and the St Petersburg Times. She is also professor of literature and writing at Florida State University and the author of four books, the most recent of which is Dream State, a political history of Florida
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?
The rhetoric of this diatribe is over-the-top funny!
I said big, not biggest. LOL.
Me. They are comfortable, light and reliable.
She really ought to get out more. Sounds like the hypoxia is starting to get to her.
Where’s the barf alert? I almost lost my dinner.
Oh, my. Well, how do you convince her you’re really glad to see her? ;)
Wow, the college I went to in the early 80’s had a range in the basement of one of the buildings. I would go out to the parking lot before class, get my .22 pistol, and go shoot. No SWAT teams ever showed up or were called.
Liar. She knows better. Hell, so does everybody, even the liars who are lying about it.
And some people just can’t stop themselves from shooting their arguments in the knees.
What I read in the excerpt was ALL emotion and emotional triggers. And for me, that was enough to not read any further and just turned her right off.
Which guns are which?
Why pick, I tend to think she is both based on the article.
So far it seems those that don’t believe in Gun Free Zone signs have all the guns.
Or logic. She's just an anti-2nd fundamentalist, though, so what can we expect?
FN idiot b!tch.
And being gun free zones they are also excellent hunting grounds for rapist and muggers.
As long as there are liberals, real Americans will need guns for protection. You can never housebreaking a rabid animal.
I cary a Colt Detective Special in an ankle holster as a back-up.The Gold Dot loads will do a lot of damage up close.
To quote Heinlein:
‘An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.’
It must be a symptom of whatever disease causes leftsm that they all project. This little lady can’t imagine having a gun and not using it when angry. No one who knows me would claim I’m a stranger to anger. I’ve never broken out a gun and shot anyone, however.
No doubt another angry feminist subject, raving and raging with penis AND Gun envy. Sucks to be her.
I my GI bill to attend a gunsmithing school on a college campus. There were hundreds of guns and the ammo for them all around us every day. This was on the campus of a public college with many other areas of instruction being taught and many students who were not in the gunsmithing program attending that school. There were students doing homework on guns in the dorms and openly carrying firearms from the gunshop to their vehicles all the time. We had a clearing barrel right outside of the door of the gunshop where we would fire rifles, shotguns, and handguns for function tests. There was no panic from the gunshots, no crimes committed with firearms, and no complaints from the other students. That facility at that college is still there and teaching gunsmithing today.
We also did not have crazy people bringing weapons on campus and shooting innocent students. The students and the community knew that the gunsmithing students and instructors were there and all had immediate access to firearms. I have to wonder how these gun grabbing Nazis can make this situation/reality/fact fit in with their totally irrational and unproven Bu11 $hit theories about guns on campus.
There is more than one college in our nation that teaches gunsmithing on campus. The courses require many tens of different firearms for each student to work on. Each student is required to provide all of these weapons for themselves. Every student, by course requirement, has what would now be referred to as an arsenal. With those hundreds of guns readily accessible to thirty to forty students and staff there were no murders, treats with a weapon or accidental discharges on that campus.
The icing on the cake is that this is going on to this day on a California college campus. I hope the anti-gun, lying, zealots choke on this truth and reality. I do thank them for their paying taxes that paid my GI Bill so I could attend this fine program and complete my professional certificate.
Just giving her a fair choice. She is probably both but I’m willing to let her make the call. ;-)
Your relatives don’t need to curse her. She’s cursed herself... she’s an unhappy soul.
Defending what God has blessed is another blessing of God. God gets awfully peeved when people try to block blessings that He has sworn.
But God also gets awfully peeved when we try to solve the problem by standing on our own pride.
The supernatural logjam on blessings needs to get cleared if we really want the blessings. Coming to God as a little child works better than all the grownup schemes in the world.
It seems as though highly educated university professors are among the most ignorant bumpkins in the country.
We’ve seen this ad nauseum. Because GZ did not take the maximum of precautions (and granted he could have, but still TW had the biggest cloud hanging over him), GW is getting scapegoated with all the blame. Little spats between him and his girlfriend are being blown up into national affairs now.
WOW! Next thing ya know they’ll be outlawing “gayness” in Nigeria or something and really give the guardian something to whine about. Oh, wait. That already happened and the biggest whiner so far is john f’n kerry-heinz.
In 2007, one of our most prolific mass murderers, Seung-Hui Cho, killed 32 people at Virginia Tech. Another armed person may have cut his killing spree short.
