    Andy was just on Fox5 again tonight and the GMU SCC is being touted as being backed by VCDL! No kidding!!

    Never frigging surrender, my friend - NEVER!! No compromise when lives are at stake. Remember compromise is nothing more than prolonged defeat.

    Any link to this video??

    [line]Mike accidentally deleted some of my comments:shock:

    I think I had made a comment on how I felt that the report did a good job with the AG opinion by not including Welsch's comments that the school can prevent the public from carrying in buildings.

    I also noted that GMU-SCC is not affiliated with VCDL, but that we are accepting any support that they can offer.

    I am not on the board of VCDL, nor am I an officer, but I can say that GMU SCC is being supported with OCDO with dedicated bandwidth on our web site.

    I hope that GMU SCC members and interested college students and their parents from around VA are going to make public comments before the Virginia Tech Review Panel at its upcoming meetings.

    The panel and press needs to hear from you that you want thepanel conlcude that the General Assembly should clarify that colleges have no pwoer to discipline lawful licensed concealed carry by students. Keep it short & crisp, like 1 minute, and to the point - who you are, your connection to VA and colleges, what you want the panmel to conclude, and why.

    See http://vtreviewpanel.org/meetings.

    • Monday, June 11 2007 - Time: TBD
      Northern VA • Location: TBD

    Great interview on ABC (the VCDL referenced one)!



    Well spoken, and I'm sorry the SGA President didn't take a more logical approach in this "debate" and sumarily got his tukas handed to him by you and surprisingly the impartial host. > )
