    A couple of stories that may be of some interest

    The student newspaper at the University of Texas-Austin has covered campus carry extensively, publishing no fewer than 18 op-eds opposing the measure this month alone, but when one student submitted a contrasting viewpoint, the piece was summarily rejected.

    http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=6904
    More than 150 University of Texas professors have signed a petition vowing to ban their students from carrying handguns into the classroom, whether or not they have a concealed handgun license (CHL).

    Another signee of the petition, signing under the name Sheila Zare, seemed to imply that students carrying concealed handguns should be killed: “If you're a student with a gun sitting next to me, you intend to possibly kill me. Why shouldn't I kill you before you kill me[?]”

    I think they meant "you possibly intend to kill me" which is quite different from "you intend to possibly kill me". In either case the belief is entirely and obviously unreasonable, and use of force would be unequivocally unjustified.

    Either way I'm hoping that she doesn't operate a motor vehicle with the same mindset. Or feel the same way when shopping in Target and standing behind someone purchasing a set of kitchen knives. Or at Home Depot when someone near her is shopping for a nice brush clearing tool. And on, and on. I think that the label for someone like her is "paranoid."

    Simply astounding, a whack-a-doodle is dangerous to all of humanity if armed with a gun, but that same whack-a-doodle is encouraged to drive themselves to a shrink to address their whack-a-doodle tendencies.
