    This kid is phobic and exgtremely narcissistic! What would he do if he saw one of my knives I routinely carry? It seems as if everything around him should be there for his comfort only. Does no one else matter?:what: I think he should go get a private tutor so he never has to leave his home again and feel uncomfortable.:barf:

    My favorite part was the bit about Karl Marx's views on society.

    This is a college educated student!? :scrutiny:

    This is the exact reason why I hate college kids. Every day I deal with these idjits in my classes and it is mind-numbing to witness.

    The man presented no logical arguments, just a fear of guns. :cuss:

    I do like how he "allowed" me to own fully automatic assault weapons or what have you.

    So all I got from this article was that this was a scared, sheltered kid who cannot form proper sentences and articulate his feelings intelligently in writing.

    Its a cops gun too! So now whereever this kid sees a cop, he wants them disarmed? What if hes in a restaurant or a bar or a library or a internet gaming lounge haha?

    This kid has a lot of growing up to do.

    I am also surprised at how one little article has gotten me so riled up on my day off. :D

    I don't know what more can be added. This student is a complete moron. Not a partial moron - a full, complete, and total moron.

    What would he think if some deranged whacko started shooting up his campus? He might just be glad that the uniformed armed officer (or a CCW holder) was there to stop him.

    Y'all should read the responses to his editorial on the provided link. Hope is not lost. :)

    Oh, the irony. Marx's views on society are exactly why a gun in the classroom should comfort him.

    A baseless fear of inanimate objects sounds like a bigger impediment to learning I'd say, but that's just me.

    One of the toughest lessons to learn in life is that you can't always get what you want. This kid just needs a little edumacatin'.

    Hopefully the next gun in school he sees, will not be some Arab Muslim carrying an AK47 over the dead body of an unarmed security guard.

    MONEY QUOTE #1: If it were someone with a knife, then now the situation has become much more dangerous. God forbid it was a person with another gun, because now that person has more ammo.

    MONEY QUOTE #2: And I am not even opposed to people owning guns. For all I care, an individual could own a fully automatic assault rifle and be using it for spotlighting herds of deer. As long as you keep it away from me in public settings, then fine.

    GRAND PRIZE MONEY QUOTE: There is no way that a gun will ever comfort me while I am trying to learn about Karl Marx's views on society.

    What a maroon! Thanks for posting that. I had to wipe the coffee from my monitor this morning.

    From ParentReport.com:

    It's important for adults to remember that the two-year-old's world centers around himself. He makes the rules.

    In this situation our toddler doesn't understand that the police officer has rights too. The two-year-old wouldn't care if he did understand. What he wants is for the school and the officer to follow his rules.

    There is a potentially serious problem. People who remain emotional and psychological two-year-olds as they enter adulthood can be dangerous to themselves and other people. Their behavior becomes increasingly anti-social because they demand that the world conform to their rules and attempt to punish anyone who does not. If they fear cigarette smoke, they insist upon banning cigarettes. If it's firearms they fear, they insist upon banning them.

    As the retarded behavior is allowed to continue, an adult two-year-old might accumulate sufficient power from other anti-social people and murder whoever they hate or fear, collectively and individually. In that light, Adolf Hitler exhibited a most dangerous form of two-year-old behavior. So, of course, do other kinds of racial and religious bigots.

    Even a moderately well-adjusted adult recognizes that the world does not center on him. An adult who found himself distracted by the presence of an armed police officer as another student in his classroom would try for better mental health. Should he be unable or unwilling to do so, he would simply transfer to another class instead of demanding that the university conform to his wishes. He would recognize, immediately and without being told, that an unarmed policeman in uniform presents himself as a target for other deranged people.

    This adult infant attacks the policeman verbally. Others with similar or worse pyschological disorders might choose more fatal weapons for their attacks. None of them care about the policeman--or about anyone else--in their distorted world they are the only people who matter.

    This two-year-old demonstrates the complete and utter failure of his parents' child rearing skills. They produced this monster. Unfortunately they are not alone in encouraging their children to become monsters and anti-social deviants. Perhaps the most effective way to attempt those big children's integration into society would be to require a long course of psychological treatment at the parents' expense. It would be far better to do that now than to face the possible need to incarcerate him later for offenses such robbing, beating, or even murdering people he considers insignificant.

    Of course it is ironic that the writer of this tantrum is in a discipline that attempts to study human social behavior.

    I'd point out to that kid that one of the things you're supposed to get from college is to learn how to deal with people and circumstances different from himself, and his own narrow world view.

    That'll serve him better than Karl Marx ever will.

    Well, the kid is a journalism major...

    I do like the responses on the page where the article appears. I do love my home state. If WKU is anything like the university where I work, he'll find a bit more sympathy among the faculty than the students. But just a bit more.

    Welcome to Kentucky, Brandon! The place where, not too long ago, "He needed killin'" was a valid defense. :D

    I'm a little concerned that everything thinks its perfectly OK for an off-duty LEO to carry a gun in class.

    But any other citizen student would be expelled immediately.

    Why they double-standard?

    The concept that only government and police can be trusted with firearms is disturbing.

    Can JROTC / military bring their issued / non-issued firearms to class also?

    Don't be too hard on him. He's just saying what he's been taught.

    Methinks you create a strawman. The subject being discussed is specific. Not mentioning other citizens does not imply anything, one way or the other.

    Every single comment in response to that is ripping him apart. Fun to read:) Since when does what he thinks have any bearing on the second amendment of the constitution? If he doesen't like guns, don't carry one.

    Unfortunately, with an attitude and intellect like that, the author will probably become a world famous "journalist". It wouldn't surprise me to see him making up stories as a war correspondent in a few years.
