the yet to be introduced new 'guns on campus' bill. I think they're still mad about the constitution carry bill being signed by the governor that they lobbied so heavily against. And then there's the 'guns in bars' bill they lobbied against. They blame the NRA for these new gun bills when in fact it's the AZCDL that get these bills introduced. Pretty funny.
In the last few years, I've really come around to realizing that, on "rights" issues, it's not so much liberalism vs. conservativism as it is statism vs. liberty. Unfortunately, there are plenty of statists who wear the conservative label. There are even a fair number on this board...
Carrying a gun on a college campus right now is only a misdemeanor. I think that the little girls over at KFYI might be astonished to learn how many people are doing it already, despite the law. If they ever found out, they'd probably get so scared that they'd make a little mess in their panties.
I was somewhat surprised to hear Mike Broomhead lobby against guns on campus.
Sadly, we still have plenty of folks who spout the line, "I'm a staunch 2nd amendment supporter" then qualify their perfidy. I almost (almost)
have more respect for the gun melters. I totally disagree with their positions, but at least they're honest about those position. They're just a
bunch of collectivist wackos who want the "state" to take care of them. In the final analysis, you're either for gun-owner rights or you're not.
Carrying, open or concealed offers no actual "harm" to anyone. It's never how someone carries a gun that bothers me, it's what they do with
that gun that can cause me distress. Someone shooting at me, now that's harm !!!
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.
