Who ya gonna call?

No, as I said in my interview yesterday with WBIR' Leslie Ackerson concerning Campus Carry by full time faculty and staff:
When we have an active shooter, who are you going to call? Somebody with a gun. The advantage of campus-carry is hopefully someone with a gun will be 10 seconds away instead of 10 minutes.


From the legislature's web site:This bill adds a ninth exemption . . . for full-time employees of public higher education institutions who have a handgun permit and are carrying a handgun only on property owned, operated, or in use by the institution employing the employee.

You will need to read the amendments to get the full meaning of the bill.

One might ask if this bill relegates qualified adjunct faculty to second-class status. Next year, I believe the legislature should look at including them, and also qualified adult students.

  2. Do You Patronize Businesses That Undermine Your Freedoms - Fact is, mindless gun-free zones are what mass shootings have in common. They are killing zones, free from good guys with guns. That’s why the Aurora movie theater killer chose the more distant theater where guns were not allowed and thus where he wouldn’t have to worry about his plan being foiled.
