    Board of Regents

    There is an election coming up and I have written the candidates for Board of Regents in my district to ask them their stand on Campus Carry.
    Everyone should do this for those running in your area.

    Reply from Andrea Anderson, incumbent

    Dr Anderson

    As a member of the Board of Regents, do you support campus carry of licensed concealed firearms?




    Tim,
    I do not. I feel it could create a volatile situation as times.
    Andrea Anderson


    She is in district 12

    The only place I know of is the NV Sec of State website:

    http://nvsos.gov/index.aspx?page=72

    And, unfortunately, it is not complete. Many Senate and Assembly candidates are not listed there. I emailed the SecState days ago, but haven't received a reply.

    The Board of Regents candidate list appears incomplete too.

    I got the names off my sample ballot that came in the mail. I looked each up individually on the web and found an email for all but one.

    I have contacted Cedric Crear (incumbent), Lawrence Ita, and Jeff Eggeman regarding their stances on campus carry. I will update if I hear back from any of them.

    Response from Jeff Eggeman:

    I am for the right to bear arms, whether concealed or not. If they are law abiding citizens. If it comes up for vote I will support these rights. Nevada universities are not closed campuses. Safety is a concern. Thank you, Jeff Eggeman.

    Answer from Susan Bunyan.

    The following is the answer I just received from Susan Bunyan, candidate for Board of Regents, District 12. (Anohter one bites the dust)

    TBG



    I abide by the 2nd amendment in support of the right to bear arms - "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." I read this to say that the right to bear arms was intended to make sure the citizens could maintain a militia to protect this country.

    I also support the stance of the Nevada Faculty Alliance that the 2nd amendment doesn't grant the right to carry arms on campus and would oppose any legislation that would allow guns on campus.

    Even if one could make an argument that the 2nd amendment is a collective or state right and not an individual right per the 2 recent SCOTUS rulings, the NV Constitution is quite clear and I have informed her of this. As to what she knows? I would say very little. I would say she comes under the catagory of you can't reason with someone who has decided to be unreasonable.

    What a dolt!
    These rights are simply enumerated by COTUS, not granted by it! "We are endowed by our Creator" with these rights!
    I must presume this imbecile has a degree? This really makes me sick, that those running for office do not know basic American history or relevant SCOTUS decisions pertaining to their votes. My God! I pray she loses, she is barely qualified for flipping burgers.

    I understand that firearms are only allowed I campus if a peace officer is performing his duties, or if you have written permission from the university president (which I expect has never been granted). So how do you figure that firearms are allowed on campus?

    Yes, I was referring to the exceptions, which she did not acknowledge.

    Think about it, who is a University President? Some administrator schmuck with a better idea of who gets to carry a firearm than a state-certified firearms instructor. I guess his oversight makes us all safer.

    This "permission" has been granted at least once. It was granted to Amanda Collins, a CCW permit holder who was denied her right to be armed until AFTER she was raped on the campus of UNR. Her thus-unimpeded rapist went on to rape two more and murder one of them.

    Better know your cut throats!

    Say what you will. I watch john Stuart. I like Steven Colbert. Their shows are comedic, and show us what we might be missing. I disagree ofteen with what they say...with what is said on this site....

    Better know, input by our throats...

    Good job. But remember we help our new peeps when we chime in.

    Write her back and tell her that the USSC disagrees with her reading, and ask if she would like to learn more.

    Rule 1 when dealing with someone opposed to your rights: If possible, CONVERT them!

    Well, those ARE firearms, and they ARE allowed on campus.

    I would put her in the catagory of "don't confuse me with the facts, my minds made up". I did tell her SCOTUS did not agree with her. No use arguing with her. I was simply trying to figure who to vote for, and she's not it.

    It always amazes me just how many people involved with education -- especially HIGHER education -- refuse to LEARN.

    Especially people that are given a position of authority. Judges, politicians, police... They don't like to be told that they are wrong in the performance of their duties.

    This is exactly why we are here, because somewhere, sometime, somebody in a position of authority got it wrong and we have to educate the educated.

    Yes.

    SO, it's not the FIREARMS that she objects to, it is WHO HAS THEM.
