Alright guys, do your worst

http://www.alligator.org/opinion/questions/poll_20e7a23c-9108-11e2-b5d1-0019bb2963f4.html

I am the president of the University of Florida Chapter of Students for Concealed Carry.

As we prepare for our up coming empty holster protest, the current political climate has raised interest in the student newspaper, the Alligator.

I was recently interviewed concerning carry on campus, and was not covered very fairly imo, but the alligator has put up a poll asking about guns on campus. I know most of you guys aren't students here, but Id really like to make a point to the alligator that there are 2A supporters out there.

Make it happen guys

I always wondered if you were someone I knew tangentially! I'm Michael... I posted my comment already at the terrible wording and unfair light that the alligator is taking. Simply "guns on campus" is the worst way to frame the question when we're talking about concealed carry permit holders.

I always tried to figure out what was "campus" and what was "city" in Gainesville.

Boom you just hit the nail on the head...hard to go just about anywhere in gainesville without being on "campus"

My wife, brother-in-law and nephew are Gamecocks, but we can make this SEC-centric! Voted of course.

As I drill into my kids, there is no such thing as fair, only equitable. You will receive neither from the press. IMHO, you have a better chance of being struck by lightning (especially here in FL).

Excellent cause and good luck.

Some things are more important than college rivalries.

As we prepare for our up coming empty holster protest

Just WHAT is this supposed to accomplish?

I live a little south - take out all of the out of state students and guns would be in the back window of every pickup

oneounce, the empty holster protest is a nationwide protest where students wear empty holsters to symbolize the fact that we are disarmed on campus, and also to show that people from every walk of life are supporters of lawful self defense. We get all kinds of people show up in support of us, not just your southern white males.

We pass out literature about self defense and the current status of laws in FL, we inform people how to go about getting their own Permits, and we debate our stance in a public forum.

pikid89 - I did a lazy copy&paste of the results and got it - I didn't even notice that I'd somehow picked up extra information at the time.

FWIW I found a graphic that was put together from stats from the CSU campus cops.

You have to be 21 to get a carry permit here which means that only about 1/4 of the students are even eligible. Over that, participation rate for CCW is about 5% in CO, so the odds of meeting a carrying student is about 1.25%.

The question to campus rapists was "Do you feel lucky, punk?"

At those odds the answer was No.

bigfatdave
March 22, 2013, 09:19 PM
Yes 462 81.8% No 103 18.2%

To get the number of votes, highlight the shown results and use the keyboard shortcut for "copy", then "paste" it in here
