    Borrowed from the armed American.

    Colorado State University has recently banned concealed weapons on campus. No, that's not the good news- that's stupid news. But listen to this: The sheriff in that count (Larimer County), a Mr. James Alderden is NOT happy about it. It gets better...

    He's publicly announced the following:

    "I have told the CSU police chief I will not support this in any way. If anyone with one of my permits gets arrested for concealed carry at CSU, I will refuse to book that person into my jail. Furthermore, I will show up at court and testify on that person's behalf, and I will do whatever I can to discourage a conviction. I will not be a party to this very poor decision."

    If your eyes aren't already watering, read what he said next:

    "It's a weapons-free zone for law-abiding people, and it won't do a single thing to keep armed criminals off of campus. It will only ensure them a lot of defenseless victims. The people who did this are lost in their own world of ideological liberalism. You would think people involved in academia would want to deal in data and experience, but this has been all about emotion."

    Wow! Does that guy think like us, or what? What a hero. Here's to YOU, Sheriff Alderden, on behalf of 150,000 respectable, peace-loving, law-abiding armed citizens. Friend- there's a poll on the story, at THIS website. I just voted that the students should LISTEN to their wise Sheriff, and ignore the gun-ban, and I encourage you to do the same. When I voted, 92% of the 2,935 respondents agreed with me. Let's get to work voting, and get that number up to 99%!

    Jeff, would you pls find out some information about his election campaign fund? I'd suggest that maybe we'd want to drop a few dollars as a token of thanks into that fund, maybe even hold a raffle for his benefit.

    Fuck me, an elected official who gets it.

    The President of the University I work for in Georgia just made a statement
    to the newspapers that even if the law were changed to allow carry by
    lawful citizens with CCW's on school grounds he would personally still make
    sure that weapons were banned on out campus.:devilfinger:

    Well, if that teacher feels that way, then I guees I want to go to the school board and ask them to stop hiring male teachers, because we all know all male teachers are child molestors. I may be shown the data and proof, but it's an emotional thing...

    Yes, but women are hysterical and emotionally unpredictable.

    Maybe if we just got robots.....no, bag that, I'm reading 2001 and HAL proves you cannot trust robots....

    I find that most people who want anything banned have little if any concern about the facts or the law. They are far more concerned about their own agenda and their own perceived freedoms.

    I had a teacher in HS who was a screaming liberal politically, also a very intelligent guy and owned a BHP and Walther PPK (German made .32acp)

    His politics were his own, but he most assuredly demanded that you have your own and worked diligently to instill this into all his students.

    While this is definitely awesome...its sad that it is awesome. Forgive me if I'm not verbalizing this well...but its like saying that a guy is awesome for not robbing you at a McDonalds...or telling someone they are awesome for not beating the shit out of their wife or child. Its common sense...everyone in office is afraid to speak out like that when its the obivous, correct thing to do. It is utterly insane to think that anyone intent on using a firearm to break the law is going to walk on campus, "Shit...I was going to murder a bunch of people...but they banned CCWs increasing the likelihood of my success...man...guess I better go home then." Its like someone trying to argue with you that 2+2 does not equal 4.

    While I agree with the sentiment, I do believe this number is a bit low. Unless of course, you are just referring to the numbers for one state. IIRC, Florida alone has issued something like 1.2 million permits so far.

    I wish that Sheriff James Alderden was the sheriff of our county.
    The county sheriff we have writes anti gun articles for the local newspapers, stating how nobody needs a gun because the police are there to protect you as well as other fairey tales. :ssad:

    There are a lot of sheriffs that think long those lines. That's why so many people do the trust thing when it comes to NFA items. They misinformed and just understand legal firearms and legal firearms ownership.

    That last argument is easily defeated. The police aren't there when someone is in your house...or when you are getting robbed on the streets...and the police don't get to choose their weapons...a bean counter usually does...at the lowest bid. I'd rather decide the weapon protecting my family...and I bet cops would rather pick their sidearm for that matter!

    I wouldn't trust my life to anything not made in America. I hope this sheriff's ideals catch on in the law enforcement community.

    Email sent with STRONG agreement for the Sherrif's actions. Up here in Waterworld, where the Seattle liberality concurs with the Pelosi lunacy, I can at least be a speedbump to the Socialist virus that has infected otherwise decent Americans. Keep on thinkin FREE!!!

    That made me think of my little go around testing Chinese airsoft knockoffs on real firearms. I'll have to dig up some pics...it didn't go well!
