The Second Amendment and College Students

The Second Amendment will be a topic of discussion at Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow with the Supreme Court choosing to hear a case that may finally answer the question of whether gun rights are applicable to the individual or are "collective". Then I find out today from Ron Simpson over at the Cluttered Eclectic Mind Blog that there are a group of college students who are looking to be able to carry firearms on campus.

What's happening at colleges nowadays? Ron Paul does a rally at the University of Michigan and 2000 students show up to support him. He gets his biggest cheers when he talks about fiat money and getting rid of the Federal Reserve Bank (the students end up burning dollar bills as a sign of protest). Now these kids are looking to be able to carry on campus? Is knowing and studying the Constitution next?

When I was going to college, the easiest way to get laid was a 12 pack of Coors Silver Bullet and the latest Hootie and the Blowfish CD and my charm ("Why yes, that BodyGlove T shirt would look much better on my floor"). I guess nowadays pillowtalk consists of why the 17th amendment should be rescinded and reverting the election of the Senators back to the state legislatures. Which, now that I think about it, is pretty hot. Hold me.

This post made me laugh. Guys who talk confidently about history and the constitution always seem to turn my eye. Brains and charm do the trick.

Re: guns on campus - I had a post not long ago about the National "Empty Holster" Protest, which was about students wearing empty holsters on campus all week to silently protest their lack of gun rights. It didn't get much press, unfortunately, but I sure supported the concept.
