This week’s sign of the apocalypse

There’s obviously a lot of competition in this category these days, but as of late yesterday, it has to be the fact that the President of the University of North Carolina and law enforcement officers are reduced to begging the honorables on Jones Street to allow the university to remain gun-free.

God help us.

    Sign of the apocalypse….really? That is a little over the top.

    First, the story does not look like they are “begging” just participating in the debate.

    Second, it is a locked handgun for lawful concealed carry owners. Not much threat to that. What the actual concern should be about is the unlawful owner who is not trained, does not care, and carries the gun on campus. If someone comes to shoot up the place they are going to do it anyway. All the law will do is allow the concealed carry person to just watch the shooting happen instead of potentially solving the situation.

    These hysterics over guns are really directed at the wrong place, we limit lawful owners ad nauseum while the criminals continue without limits. This is the epitome of government regulation….wrong law, focused on the wrong people.
