Debatable Topics For College Students

Andre Said:

Do You Think College Students Should Be Allowed To Carry Concealed Firearms On Campus?

We Answered:

Yes, if they have a permit why not? The guy who shot up Virginia tech did not have a right to carry a gun on campus or anywhere for that matter and it did not stop him. He however could of been stopped if there was another student that was armed near by. And you do bring up a good point that only upper class people would be allowed to carry. I dont see what the big deal is, the fact is it would keep everyone safer.

Do You Think College Students Should Be Allowed To Carry Concealed Firearms On Campus?

We Answered:

"Do You Think College Students Should Be Allowed To Carry Concealed Firearms On Campus?"

Yes. Anyone who says no to this question, is advocating the taking away of a persons right to defend his or her own life. I cannot agree with that on any level.

"This is a very debatable topic."

No. No, it's not. The second amendment expressly grants all citizen the right to bare arms.

"Whether or not you have a gun carrying license most college campuses ban all firearms, so you would be convicted of a felony if found out to be carrying a gun on campus."

College campuses do not make state or federal law. The only thing they can do if they find you legally carrying a concealed weapon is kick you out of the college. The only way a college could have have you charged with a felony would be if you were carrying your handgun illegally. If that is the case, you are a criminal and charges should be pressed against you.

"Do you think that students with the proper license and qualifications should be allowed to carry their guns on campus? Mind you these are adults and not elementary and high school students. Also, for most states to be able to carry a concealed weapon the age is 21. So no 18-20 year olds would be allowed to carry."

As I said before, yes. I think people have the misconception that police will protect them or that banning guns on campuses, somehow makes them safer. 95% of the time police only show up after a crime or murder has already been commited. College bans on handguns only make people feel safe. They will not stop a criminal from bringing a weapon on campus, so law abiding citizens are left defenseless. People who think that 21 year olds are not responsible enough to carry a handgun are full of it. Having a gun on you doesn't make you any more prone to shoot someone then having a drivers liscence makes you prone to run over someone or having a pencil makes you prone to stab someone. It's bullshit to make that claim. It's time that people in this country stop agreeing to handing away their rights at the drop of a hat. It's getting to the point where we are basically slaves now. It really sickens me to see people, who call themselves Americas, advocating the taking away of a persons right to defend themselves. People in this country have forgotten that this country is founded on freedom.

EDIT

Ra4bat

You say, "First of all, licensing means nothing."

If you can realize this, then you must also realize that a ban of concealed weapons on campus also means nothing. If a criminal wants to bring a handgun on campus, he or she is going to, regardless of a ban by the college. Let me ask you something, "How much of your time as a police officer did you spend patrolling college campuses?" I am going to bet that that it was very little which brings me to my next point

You also say, "Let the professionals handle the situation."

Which situation would that be, carrying out the body bags or doing investigations to find out who the culprit is? I am sorry but the only person I trust with my life, is me. Nine times out of ten the police only show up after the murders have been commited. Rarely are they there in time to keep those murders from happening as can be seen from past incidents. Gun bans make no one safer, they only make people feel safer.

You say, "There is a responsibility factor, here."

There most certainly is and college students who are twenty one years of age are responsible adults by law. That doesn't change just because they are on or off of a college campus. Why is it that you feel it is fine for a 21 year old to carry concealed off campus, but not on? Hell, if we can't trust 21 year old to not kill people, why are they even considered adults yet? I mean if they really wanted to hurt people, they don't need guns to do it. Guns do not make people more prone to committing crimes, their personalities do and if they have criminal rap sheet or if they are mentally unstable they should not have a permit to carry a concealed weapon in the first place.

In closing I would like to say that I find it very hard to believe that you were ever a proponent of firearms. What you have said here goes agaist everything that gun advocates believe in and that is the right of ALL citizens to bear arms. The one thing I can easily believe is that you are a professor. The things you have said are a clear indication of liberal elitist thinking. The only people you advocate having gun rights are the police, military or yourself. That speaks volumes as to how you regard the rest of society.

Clarence Said:

why am i discriminated against for this?

We Answered:

You don't really have a question that needs answering. You just want to feel confident about the direction you're going in. I too can relate. You are letting fear and anger starting to consume you - I know I'm sounding like Yoda but it's true. You have the power to both make yourself sick and well. You're not in a good state of mind because your own fear is paralyzing you to see the opportunities around you.

I was a little like yourself, but probably worse. I finally spoke with a therapist and he had me simply repeat positive phrases when I was down and read motivational books. Within a few weeks I started to feel good again and socialize. After working for a couple years, I went back to college at the age of 22. My life change very dramatically for the better and I was so confident that I did a little Modeling and teaching. These are things I would have never thought I could do considering how sick I was. You become what you think about most of the time. If you sit watch T.V. and think you're crazy then you are. However, if pick up a book and progress toward an objective you become what you seek.

debatable statements?

We Answered:

Should governments invest more money in "youth" or in "old age"? Big question. Because
if you do invest proportionately more in youth..like sports, travel, tolerance, education etc.
and specially good health...then you do not have to support them "in their old age" hopefully
they will still be healthy. Because...of cost benefit approach. Not supported youth
gets older and thereafter it will cost the state..more funds, more money...to look after
its older population.
ps. specific example. let the youth smoke cigarettes...when they are young...
and you will pay dearly when they get older....and have the direct effect of
smoking in their old age...expensive treatments...and hospital care...etc...
