    Students Strap On Empty Holsters to Protest Gun Restrictions on Campus.

    Interesting article.

    Ya know just as a thought ... most jurisdictions you must be 21 to legally a pistol. How many of those protesters or students on a campus are 21? Underage drinking at college kills more in a year than guns do ... why are they not walking around with empty beer bottles?

    If you read the article, you'll see that the protesters are of age to possess and carry.


    Secondly, college underage drinking deaths usually result in the death of the individual drinking, not the innocent people around them.


    Thirdly, they are concerned about protecting themselves from someone attacking them, possible with a weapon, so the underage drinking issue is irrelevant.

    When isn't a Lumper post irrelevant?

    lightfoot,

    Unless the underage drinking results in drunk driving, but I guess you don't have to be underage to do that.

    dbls_champ,


    Since Lumper said "at college", I assumed he was talking about alcohol poisoning deaths. Plus if they’re driving, they usually crash off of campus somewhere, and the article was about carrying concealed weapons ON campus. Of course we know he was just trying to be funny. Don’t really know what his real position is on this. I’m all for it.
