    Pretend "Gun-free" School Zones: A Deadly Legal Fiction David B. Kopel
    Working Paper Series, Social Science Research Network
    March 28, 2009
    http://ssrn.com/abstract=1369783

    Most states issue permits to carry a concealed handgun for lawful protection to an applicant who is over 21 years of age, and who passes a fingerprint-based background check and a safety class. These permits allow the person to carry a concealed defensive handgun almost everywhere in the state. Should professors, school teachers, or adult college and graduate students who have such permits be allowed to carry firearms on campus? In the last two years, many state legislatures have debated the topic. School boards, regents, and administrators are likewise faced with decisions about whether to change campus firearms policies. This Paper is the first to provide a thorough analysis of the empirical evidence and policy arguments regarding licensed campus carry. Whether a reader agrees or disagrees with the Paper's policy recommendations, the Paper can lay the foundation for a better-informed debate, and a more realistic analysis of the issue.

    Guns in schools? That's insane! Everybody knows that even responsible adults who have demonstrated legal and gun handling competence become stupider by default when they go somewhere to learn or teach, and therefore can't be trusted on school grounds.

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Nice read.

    I like the "smoking gun theory".

    Dave Kopel is one of 2A's biggest assets.

    Former Assistant AG or AG for Colorado, if I remember.

    Here is his website: http://www.davekopel.com/index.htm

    Well worth visiting and spending some time.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
