    I hope he focuses on his individual right to an effective self-defense, rather than trying to get into hypotheticals or statistics about providing some benefit to society.

    "How many victims of all these mass shootings were armed and able to defend themselves?

    "How many innocent persons have been injured or killed during mass shootings by legally armed private citizens acting in lawful self-defense?"

    My right to carry on campus in about my right to an effective self defense. Period, end of story.

    If other students choose to do likewise, good on 'em. If enough of us do, that might create a deterrent effect, or provide some other social benefit. But that isn't the reason the RKBA exists. It is about my right as an individual.

    At least that is what I think is the most powerful talking point on this subject.

    And the father seems surprised that his son owned so many guns. This is the case that if he legally bought them, why does his father need to know or care. But goes to show that the gun did not kill people, the person did. So what flags were missed?

    For such an out of the way place, Scappoose Bay must be a hotbed of gun activism. Puddin99 is at least the second OCDO-er from there that I recall. The first was of nearly ten years ago.

    For folks not appreciating blind URL's, the above refers to
    "At least that would have given the students the option to have a fighting chance," said Josh Wade. "In the face of an armed assailant, at least they should have the option of being able to have a fighting chance."

    And that's what Wade, a gun rights advocate, is fighting for. On Oct. 5 a judge will decide if his lawsuit against the University of Michigan and its ban on open carrying guns on campus can move forward.
    There seems to have been some tension in the Harper/Mercer household.

    The first time I visited Mt. St. Helens, my GPS directed me through St. Helens, just up the road from Scappoose and past Scappoose Bay.
