It also found that the bullet in Rohrbough's body was a "textbook match" Harris' weapon."

UT: University Professor to Quit if Guns Allowed on Campus

A University of Utah professor is so terrified of guns that he is threatening to quit if peaceful, responsible students and faculty carry concealed firearms on campus. He apparently thinks violent criminals will obey a sign saying "no guns".

Under Utah law, concealed carry is already legal on campus.

We hope his bluff gets called. A law professor should be able to read and comprehend research and realize that guns on campus will keep everyone safer.

"The creation of NorthCom means that we now have the command assigned to defend the American people where they live and work, and it will be functioning in a supporting role to civil authorities as occasions arise," Rumsfeld told a Pentagon news conference.

"If passengers were allowed to carry firearms, the chances of thwarting a hijacking would increase. There would be no way of knowing who was armed and who wasn't. A potential hijacker would have to contend with too many variables if a plan to take over an airliner was to succeed."

KABA NOTE: Again with that lie: "nonpartisan" and "advocating stronger gun laws" -- how stupid do these people think we are?

"The simple point is this: Our entire system of law and justice is based upon the presumption of innocence until guilt is proven. This translates into the simple truth that for our society to work, we must trust one another. That means our government - an extension of ourselves - must trust us. Until an overt criminal act is committed and guilt is proved, it is unlawful and immoral to limit the freedom of any innocent citizen, especially a right so basic as defending one's own body."

Brian Puckett on KeepAndBearArms: "Hundreds of thousands of Americans ... faced with ongoing state-sponsored terrorism against gun ownership, believe that they will never regain the free exercise of their right to own, carry and use firearms unless many leading anti-gun politicians and activists are killed. In human terms, this is perfectly understandable. In fact, it is absolutely logical."
