    Many of us work in "occupied territory" (heh); I've linked a few academics and students speaking out again Victim Disarmament at http://leveron.com/john/rights/

    Thanks for continuing to post these, just trying to get the word out to those who "don't quite get it yet", and to abolish the hopes of those who seek to make us all victims.

    I too know some Academic types, and they're the guys I shoot with sometimes. No, not all are against.

    Also, in recent years, many liberal law profs who are personally anti-gun have realized that the Second Amendment does indeed guarentee an individual right to possess and carry firearms, and that this right is premised on self-defense both against common criminals and against domestic usurpations of power by tyrannous rulers. (E.g., see Sanford Levinson's article The Embarrassing Second Amendment at guncite.com.)

    but who did they vote for in the last election, and who turns students into good little socialists? I am not easily impressed. I like the story but not how it is characterized. This is one man speaking.

    Reminds me of the faint cry that not all blacks are Democrats.

    judging all academics as liberal or anti gun is just as bad as judging all gun owners to be illiterate rednecks.

    Just what do you consider an "academic" to be? Someone who studies? someone who teaches at a university? someone with an advanced degree?

    I have an advanced degree, am on the faculty of a university and teach college courses. I am by no means anti gun. As a matter of fact I know many professors that are huge supporters of the second amendment.
