A rise in shootings on college campuses has added a new front in the gun debate, centering on this question: does it hurt, or help, to have more armed people at school? Eight states allow people to carry concealed weapons on the grounds of public colleges and universities, based on the belief that criminals will be less likely to open fire if they know they might be confronted by someone else with a gun. Texas became the latest this year, and there is a growing movement to expand the list.

"...Something has to be done in order to stop some of the heinous violence that has occurs just like sporadically and shockingly..."

With gun control efforts stalled in Congress and in many statehouses, advocates are forging another path forward: They're going straight to the ballot box. Voters in four states will weigh gun control initiatives Nov. 8 ballot: Maine, Nevada, Washington and California.

Washington State voters already did that; now they're considering whether to allow a court to take guns away from potentially dangerous people.

With final authority metal has slammed into metal and it is the sound of a gun. It could be the sound of the bullets that cut an opening into Sandy Hook Elementary School, resulting in 26 deaths. Instead, that rhythmic singing of steel is a gun barrel. In this case, it’s a non-violent sound, because the gun is being crushed between a blacksmith’s anvil and his hammer. This is what you will witness on Saturday, October 29 at Guns to Gardens.

In Wisconsin, it is legal with the proper licensing and training to carry a concealed weapon. People are now able to hide their guns but still carry them on their person. This helps a lot of people feel safer when they are going out in public. However, a lot of places started prohibiting guns on their premises after this law went into effect. This now prohibits people from exercising their right to have their guns on them to help them feel safe when they are out in public. This is not right.
 

Do Firearms Still Have a Place in American Society?

Guns are an important part of American history, both from a legal and illegal standpoint. From the single action revolvers of the old West to mobsters with Thompson submachine guns, American culture and society have enshrined firearms into our national iconography. They are inherently complicated things, created with the latent potential to protect or to destroy. Beyond our national discussion of gun legislation, the possession of deadly weapons by regular citizens remains a more contested issue.

If you pay even the smallest amount of attention to trends in concealed carry, you’ll know that right now, appendix carry is one of the hottest. For those of you who don’t know, or perhaps are trapped in 1989, appendix carry is where you position your carry gun in the region of your appendix; essentially down the front of your pants. There are tremendous advantages to this carry position, there are some disadvantages and there are quite a few myths, rumors, exaggerations and misunderstandings.

You have to be 21, with a license to carry, and that gun must be concealed. You should never be able to see it, but qualified students and teachers have been able to carry concealed weapons legally for more than two months.
