    Article has link to video as well:

    http://www.clickondetroit.com/educat...30/detail.html

    In the video, OUPD Chief Sam Lucido says, "I cannot imagine the possibility of people walking around with firearms not being a disruption."

    And, in related news, scientists opening up a wormhole to a parallel universe in which Lucido is a police chief two generations ago quote Lucido as saying, "I cannot imagine the possibility of black people sitting anywhere but the back of the bus not being a disruption."

    Here is the survey question:

    Do you think students should be excused from facing disciplinary action from the university if they have a state-issued permit? Yes or No

    In this survey I would have to vote No, because a student should not need a state-issued permit in the first place.
    Someone who can't be trusted to walk free in public with a firearm shouldn't be walking around free.

    You should vote "Yes" if you want to go with thechoice which supportsgun rights in this unfortunately flawed question. Yes, the question's premise isn't the greatest, but there are no other choices such as "Yes, and also a person should not need a state-issued permit in the first place."

    I think it's pretty simple. The answer is yes, because I would say the second amendment would excuse disciplinary action against those both with and without state issued licenses. The question only asks about a limited segment of students.

    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.

    I went out to dinner tonight with my dad and grandma. My dad told me that he had heard on WWJ that open carriers were going to be carrying guns and protesting at Oakland University, and he asked me if I knew anything about it. From what I can tell, it is merely another instance of the news not having the slightest clue what it's talking about, because I have heard exactly no one seriously consider carrying openly on the campus.
