Guns on Campus

Kentucky is considering a bill to allow guns on long as they stay locked in a car.

This is the latest in the growing debate which was spawned by the Virginia Tech killings.

Frankly, I don't see how a gun locked in a car is going to protect the owner when things get bad. Pepper spray would be a better deterrent.

A better approach would allow those with Concealed Carry Permits to carry on campus. CCW folks are already the least likely to mis-use their weapons and most have had at least some certified training.

The liberal establishment that rules most Colleges in this country won't move towards a liberal approach on this issue....until....perhaps....another tragedy occurs. Even if more defenseless students are killed....I don't see anything changing.
