    This appeared in today's "Public Forum." It's always good to now that
    someone gets it right.

    Simplistic propaganda

    Just having the rule "no guns on campus" to send a message isn't good
    enough when it strips the only people who will obey it of their
    constitutional right. Unless the University of Utah has a way to enforce
    its policy on those with malicious intent, no matter how lofty an ideal
    this rule is based upon, it will only be followed by Utah's
    non-threatening, law-abiding gun permit holders. It will not stop
    someone with criminal intent from bringing a gun on campus and wreaking

    The rule may indeed make some misinformed people feel safe, but at the
    expense of stripping law-abiding citizens of their constitutional right
    and setting an alarming precedent for other entities to follow. Marla
    Kennedy, executive director of Utahns Against Gun Violence and the
    Trib's editorial columns have both accused Utah's lawmakers of ignoring
    their constituency who oppose guns in schools. I thank God these
    lawmakers are looking at the big picture, using factual information and
    weighing all the complexities and issues involved, instead of being
    pressured by the simplistic and emotional propaganda disseminated by
    anti-gun groups.

    Do Utahns Against Gun Violence believe in cooperating with gun
    manufacturers and organizations that actively promote gun safety and
    family values as the answer to gun violence rather than banning guns
    altogether? If they are not open to this kind of partnership, then
    perhaps they should change their name to accurately reflect who they
    really are -- Utahns Against Guns.

    I love the sound of reason in the morning! It sounds like..... VICTORY!


    That's one of the reasons I like Utah - it's still got a pretty high citizen to sheeple ratio.

    So far...
