Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sat Sep 1, 2012, 08:05 PM

 

We need a Pro-RKBA group on DU

Those who support the RKBA are harassed and intimidated by those who do not here in the RKBA group. This is especially true for newbie posters who are scared out of the pond by the "big fish". It would be a good place to further discussion and share info with each other in a peaceful friendly manner without all of the personal insults and harassment.

There are many 2nd amendment supporters and firearms owners here that would support an additional non-battleground group (safe haven)

reduced to a smattering of adolescents, Google dumpers and whining scolds. The gungeon is already pro RKBA.

So are you going to produce something of substance or continue your losing streak? I don't see a lot to brag about here. Can you produce some relevant content, or do you prefer to continue to jump up and down squealing, "Somebody else did it too!"

He is, apparently, immune to embarrassment.

I posted the first response in this thread, and this sub thread is the result. The issue at hand is the posting habits of anti gunners and their lack of constructive content. You have proven to be a prime example.

136. No, the issue at hand is that the biggest "Google dumper" on this forum is a "pro gun progressive,"

and this was proven by citing the number of OP's that poster had put up in this forum. You came along and mumbled something about wanting proof, and I invited you to use your mouse to scroll up and down the forum and count them for yourself. Everything after has just been you posting for, I don't know, the sake of doing it, I guess. Not one of your subsequent replies has answered anything, nor asked anything new, nor "discussed" anything of substance.

, indeed.



Edit: typo & clarity.

137. Your diverson isn't working.

And every reply kicks the OP. You're satisfied to be the adolescent. Fine. You're in the RKBA group. But you can't discuss RKBA. Rather, you avoid the obvious.

Do you have any facts or logical arguments relevant to the ownership and carraige of firearms in the United States?

I can't wait to hear from you.

140. Do you honestly think that a person who goes to the trouble to rig up a waterproof gun bag

so they can have access to a firearm while they are showering is not some kind of paranoid fanatic, and probably an unstable one at that? Don't tell me about what doesn't bother you or any of that other jazz about phony "constitutional rights": we're not talking about whether such a person is "bothering" anybody or not, or whether they have a "constitutional right" to bear their deadly little toy in the shower.

Just so there's not mistake, and you don't go running off on a tangent as is the usual around here, let me spell it out again, in a simpler form: don't you think people who think they need to be armed even while showering are paranoid fanatics, who might even be a bit unstable? Doesn't showering with a gun even strike our "pro gun progressives" as, well, a bit odd?

AGAIN: I am NOT interested in hearing how it doesn't bother you, whether there is a "constitutional right" to shower and bear arms at the same time, yada, yada. Answer the question put to you, not the one you imagine is on the table.

I think that somebody who believes that guns are "deadly little phallic replacement devices" is just as unstable (if not more so) than somebody who chooses to shower with an AR-15.

However, I don't believe that the government should be investigating them and I don't feel that being "a bit odd"...or even "a lot odd" correlates with one's likelihood to commit mass murder.

Sometimes the threads in this group degenerate into nothing but name calling but occasionally some valid points are raised. I think people on both sides of the issue need to man up and stop whining. If you want to discuss issues relating to specific firearms, ballistics, reloading or gunsmithing, go to the Outdoor Life group.

19. It's not an issue of pro-RKBA vs. pro-gun-control, the issue you're

reacting to is really that there is a set of posters who have little to no interest in participating in any form of firearms discussion, and are here only to snark and bait. I don't know what motivates that behavior - perhaps it's just a horror that the gungeon and/or pro-RKBA liberals even exist - but it's not anything really to do with the pro-control perspective (even if most of these particular DUers identify with that position). The solution therefor is not to try and form a new group excluding that viewpoint,or to craft rules or procedures or standards beyond those DU already has: the disruption would still occur in one form or another, and as others have said, echo-chambers are boring.

The only thing really to do IMO is just to ignore (informally or with the feature) those DUers that contribute nothing, and interact with those that do. And, although DU juries drawn from the general community do tend to be biased against the RKBA participants, it's worth it to alert on the more egregious flamebait and insults...

Agreed. There are several pro-control or, at least, pro-more-control-than-we-have-now, posters who engage in discussion, employ logic and generally make sense. They're generally pleasant and respectful and are in no small measure one of the main reasons I read and post here.

However, using ignore in either sense does kind of produce a bit of an echo-chamber.

an echo chamber, and ignoring all the pro-more-control posters would have the same effect, as you say. I was intending to suggest just ignoring those posters that are all noise and no signal, not the interesting posters from any perspective.

That said, I don't use the ignore function; I find my informal ignore ability is quite sufficient, and there's always a chance that an interesting point might even accidentally be made by anyone, or in a reply to one of the noise-only types...

337. I share your opinions about the lack of need for a 4th group on guns.

I think it is telling that the vitality of the 2nd Amendment in DU is reflected in its history here.
First, there was one open forum. Then the controller/banners retreated to their new Castle Bansalot safe haven where debate is severely limited and controlled. Then the Ads opened up GD to debate on guns (where previously such was line-itemed out), presumably to allow controller/banners the largest forum for their campaign of mainly stigmatization & accusatory attacks on fellow DUers.

We don't need yet a a 4TH gun group/forum.

Maybe a poll should be done to see how many DUers would like to see a Return to GD's previous TOS. I'm betting most would vote to leave the original open-debate Gungeon as-is, and to leave the controlled show Bansalot as-is.

46. So, we got us a George Zimmerman supporter here. That's interesting - though not surprising.

" I really don't give a shit what Sarah Palin thinks."

You're the one who brought up a tiny group of supposed conservatives who supposedly support gun control (though a look at each of their records shows they mostly don't), so don't go whining around when that silly tactic is thrown back in your face.

Here's the bottom line: for every single marginal "conservative" or supposed Republican you can name who supports some weak version of gun control, I can name a thousand - ten thousand - of same specimens who embrace the bogus and bloody "RKBA" cause. And, of course, the vast majority of Democrats in general and progressives in particular support more civilized gun laws, and less gun deaths in America.

But this is the typical Gungeoneer game: when bested on the facts or shown how truly unpopular the deadly little fetish of "RKBA rights" is on the progressive side, you simply change the subject, and pretend you've somehow "proved" or "won" something.

Back to your original tactic: want to keep playing this game you initiated of how many Republicans support "RKBA rights" vs. how many progressives support civilized gun control laws? I'll be happy to oblige.

agenda, but this absurd stretch to pretend that conservatives are the major supporters of gun control again rears it's silly head.

1. George Will is not some big supporter of gun control. Neither was George Wallace. Bloomberg is a liberal independent, not a Republican. Nixon has been dead since 1994, and out of office since 1974. It is to laugh that you're even bringing him up.

2. Private gun ownership is not the issue: so-called "RKBA" and the easy access to firearms on the civilian market is the issue, and you well know it.

3. If you really want to play this absurd game of how many Republican politicians and conservative notables support some weak version of gun control - a tiny handful - versus how many Democratic politicians and liberal commentators and progressive notables support gun control, bring it on. I could make a list that fills this forum of the latter, and I could make a further list that could fill this forum of Republican politicians and conservative notables who support so-called "RKBA."

Why do you "pro gun progressives" continue to pretend that there is some huge group of conservatives that support sensible gun control when you know for a fact that there is not? To ask the question is to answer it, and that answer is disruption, pure and simple. You know it to be untrue, know that the time it takes to debunk it diverts the debate into other channels, and delight in the disruption such an absurd claim causes. That's the bottom line: disruption.

inherent, inalienable/unalienable rights which government is obligated to protect under our Constitution whether enumerated or unenumerated but protected by the Ninth Amendment.

Those who oppose our "agenda" can enter this group and present their case for replacing our Constitution which requires government to protect the inalienable/unalienable rights of a minority against the tyranny of a simple majority.

They should be forewarned they will find here a group of patriots ready to debate and defend ALL inalienable/unalienable rights.

73. Your comment re patriot implies either you haven't read or don't understand PA & VT constitutions of

 

1776 and 1777. They say:

A DECLARATION OF THE RIGHTS OF THE INHABITANTS OF THE COMMONWEALTH OR STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA 28 Sept. 1776
That all men are born equally free and independent, and have certain natural, inherent and inalienable rights, amongst which are, the enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.

And
That the people have a right to bear arms for the defence of themselves and the state; and as standing armies in the time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be kept up; And that the military should be kept under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.


A DECLARATION OF THE RIGHTS OF THE INHABITANTS OF THE STATE OF VERMONT 8 Jul. 1777
THAT all men are born equally free and independent, and have certain natural, inherent and unalienable rights, amongst which are the enjoying and defending life and liberty; acquiring, possessing and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety. Therefore, no male person, born in this country, or brought from over sea, ought to be holden by law, to serve any person, as a servant, slave or apprentice, after he arrives to the age of twenty-one Years, nor female, in like manner, after she arrives to the age of eighteen years, unless they are bound by their own consent, after they arrive to such age, or bound by law, for the payment of debts, damages, fines, costs, or the like.

And
That the people have a right to bear arms for the defence of themselves and the State; and, as standing armies, in the time of peace, are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be kept up; and that the military should be kept under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.


As natural, inherent, inalienable/unalienable rights it is impossible for PA citizens to have given away the right of self-defense and the right keep and bear arms for self-defense when they ratified our Constitution (1787) or when they ratified the BOR (1790) or VT (1791) to have given the same rights away when they accepted the amended constitution.

The men and women who fought against King George in the war for independence believed that each person was a sovereign unto them self and did not have to beg a king or other artificial authority for a privilege. When they approved a compact for a central government they retained some of their rights and powers that government were obligated to protect.

Writers used the word "patriot" to identify those who defend our Constitution and the principles of individual freedom that preceded our Constitution. Jefferson and Madison understood that and that's why they started the Democratic Party and were authors of the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions that defended state rights protected by the Tenth Amendment.

The Oxford English Dictionary third definition of "Patriot" is "A person actively opposing enemy forces occupying his or her country; a member of a resistance movement, a freedom fighter. Originally used of those who opposed and fought the British in the American War of Independence."

Those of us who defend the inalienable/unalienable rights our Constitution requires government to protect are "patriots" in the exact way the word was used since 1773.

Are those who wish to ignore those rights "unpatriotic"? Perhaps that's your problem.

That's takes gall, actually: if the TPTB were to "do something" in this forum about posters who do not belong on a progressive discussion board, this forum would quickly empty out, with PPR's handed out left & right. You are tolerated here, with the "pro gun progressive" nonsense; but that doesn't mean anything more than that: tolerated. Not accepted; not embraced; not liked. As the DU jury system has shown, over & over & over again, when put to the test.

politically liberal people who understand the importance of working within the system to elect more Democrats and fewer Republicans to all levels of political office. Teabaggers, Neo-cons, Dittoheads, Paulites, Freepers, Birthers, and right-wingers in general are not welcome here" (emphases added).

Not one thing in the DU TOS mentions people who think they "actually SUPPORT the Bill of Rights" in the manner you and your pals do, i.e., by willfully misreading and misconstruing the 2nd amendment to the Constitution in a right-wing manner, have any business here: indeed, quite the opposite. The "RKBA" cause is a right-wing cause, not a progressive one. It is the cause of the NRA, of Antonin Scalia, of nearly every Republican elected official in the country, and nearly every conservative commentator who opines with any kind of platform whatsoever.

So, yes: "tolerated" is the precisely correct word. And, yes, it takes gall to pretend it is anything otherwise: for all sorts of reasons that I'm sure are complicated, scarcely-disguised right-wingers are pretty much allowed a sub-forum here to spew right-wing talking points. That's fine by me, but let's not pretend there actually is any such thing as a "pr-RKBA progressive." There is not.

nut site that had a forum not viewable to the public unless you were registered and invited to the group. Somehow this poster had gotten invited. This forum was made up of "pro gun progressives" posting here on DU, and was basically a bunch of guys sitting around laughing about how stupid liberals were, how they'd "fooled" the DU'ers here, how laughable it was that they basically had their own little playground to romp around in on a progressive discussion board, etc., etc.

You could tell from certain posting styles and talk about specific OP's who the posters here were on the openly right-wing "RKBA" site, but since they used different monikers there really was no ironclad proof. Later, the forum was shut down, and was made inaccessible for normal posters, but I'm not sure what caused that to happen. I guarantee you some version of that is going on right now somewhere out on the internet.

118. Your false assumptions are what are confusing you...

Firearms for personal defense, hunting and sport transcend the standard political labels and parties. Those you accuse of pretending may well be at least as progressive as you are when measured across the board. You see limited vignettes here.

I'm out here on the left coast teaching firearms on the weekend to mostly LBTQs and women. Few if any repukes in my classes. That horrifies some, but I do it because today in our environment it is the most effective means of self defense. I wish it was not necessary, but clearly it is.

The Pink Pistols (http://www.pinkpistols.org) got it right with their motto "Armed gays don't get bashed". There was a post earlier today about how TG sisters were being killed in Philly and how violence against LBTQs is up (http://www.democraticunderground.com/113719213). The threat and violence are real. I invest my time to help those who are the most targeted by it. Its quite a bit more effective than whining about rude toters, arguing about DGU stats, or writing screeds with passion but no accuracy.

A story from one of my classes...
Before they come to the class students are told to wear closed in stout shoes or boots, sneakers at minimum, and sandals are unacceptable. This is a basic safety precaution and my range is in open desert. During an after lunch session I noticed one of the students on the line wearing stiletto heels which they had not been wearing earlier. When I asked about their choice in footwear their response was "I don't get harassed when I am in sneakers." It was both hilarious and thought provoking.

Some of us defending personal firearms, and yes even concealed carry, are as progressive as most posters here. We bring different views and experiences to site than others have. They do not come from the GOP or the NRA and claims that we are just spewing talking points is both insulting and not true. When we deny that, we are called liars or worse. Rules for this group are different than other groups and such nonsense is tolerated. Still we persevere...

125. I'm not "confused" in the slightest, "Professor." Tell us: what was your dissertation concerning?

Do you "teach" at an accredited institution? What is your tenure status? Public or private institution? Have you been published in any peer-reviewed journals? If so, which ones, and what was the title(s) of some of your work?

Tell us some of these things, "Professor".....( ).

139. My background has been published here in the past

I am retired from $BIGJOB and $PRIORJOB. Teaching is my retirement job. I don't need the money. The homestead is paid for, it backs up to BLM land and is actually making money from solar.

I am a widower. My wife died of breast cancer. In the course of our marriage we worked and lived in multiple nations, with me being the camp follower. We settled in MD for our daughters to graduate from a US high school. After they graduated we moved to Socal.

I am black though like the president, I am actually mixed race, as was my wife.

After resisting it, I recently accepted a full professorship at the public university where I have been teaching for some time. Did not really want or need tenure, but it was the right thing to do for any number of reasons.

I teach geek stuff. EE and CS, including computer modeling and computer forensics. My passion is working with students trying to figure out if this is the career for them. Not that many full profs teach 200 level classes, but I really enjoy it.

Title of my dissertations/papers/thesis would disclose my identity. They can be found on Google. Several people have told me that I can be found anyway. If your desire is to "out" me, knock yourself out.

It would not matter if I was the Chancellor of the UC system, and out of office politician(Grayson), or a self proclaimed Canadian felon (Hoyt), what matters is the content of my posts. Who I am does not matter. Its one of the underlying concepts of the Internet.

I have no onus to document my bonafides to you or anyone here on DU. That you are pushing for it shows just how much of a desperate rube you are. You cannot effectively defeat my words so you go after me instead. Nice try.

There is a long standing screed that applies to people like you and your juvenile tactics, though not all of them are topical in your case, but it is still apropos:

167. Yes, the onus is precisely on you to provide proof of your "bonafides" - you are the one

making the dubious claim, and folding it into your schtick here on Democratic Underground of being a "pro gun progressive." You also frequently indulge in the logical fallacy "Appeal to Authority" using those unestablished "bonafides" (Sic), i.e., inserting your claim that you know more than this or that poster because you once used to be something you refuse to provide proof of: a "Professor."

Now, I don't buy your claim, and I doubt many here on DU do. But if you are going to make that claim - and you have, frequently - and if you are going to use that argument that you were once a "Professor" as a talking point in your arguments - and you have, frequently - and if you are further going to fold that (likely bogus) identity into your online presence, you are gonna be called on it.

The fact that you refuse to provide proof merely lends strongly to the case that it couldn't be proved, because the claim is false.

professional repercussions if you somehow admitted to being a "pro gun professor"? Oh, wait, you said you were "retired," so that's a no-go.

The bottom line is that you have made repeated claims to having been a "professor," and frequently use that dubious claim in your arguments as a classic logical fallacy. Now, if you don't want to provide any substantiation for those claims, fine: but you should stop making claims you're unwilling to back up with proof.

It really is that simple.

"Given your attitude and that of some others, once you had my name and school there would be a never ending stream of poutrage letters."

First off, that's a dodge because you are supposedly "retired," so no matter how many "letters" sent to that institution it would have exactly ZERO effect on you, regardless. Or have you forgotten your claim that you are "retired"? Second, one would think a "pro gun professor" would welcome such attention, especially if he had tenure. Academic street cred, and all of that. One begins to suspect you've never stepped foot into a faculty lounge on an American campus.....

Being a prof is my retirement job. I have adequate pensions from $PRIORJOB and $BIGJOB. It means I don't need to work for living, but do so because I love it.

One of the things a pro does is not do things that interfere with their performance. I keep the university and firearms separate since they have no relevance to each other. I don't do politics either. CS and EE are hard enough at the university level without distractions.

I fully believe that you and some others here would so the hate mail thing...if you do, you will have to at least do some work for the data. Its the least I can do.

I do see the error of wanting such a group now, but I still wish the harassment was addressed. I guess ad hominems, insults and sliming are par for the course for the time being.

Any request demanding that you give away your personal identity on an anonymous chat forum is suspect and beyond the pale. It's interesting though that people still try this kind of chest beating macho manhood measuring contest on a PUBLIC forum. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

The retreat to ad hominems is nothing new. I don't cite my $DAYJOB to give me any authority here on DU in the gun control group but some fix upon it rather than take on the content of my posts. It shows how weak their arguments are. What would they say if my handle was 12345? I have certainly posted enough technical content in other groups to establish my technical bonafides.

Their latest is the talking points canard. If its something they don't like they use that card dismissively and then whine when it is refuted. Sometime I counter such arguments with similar tactics...it often winds them up even further, showing the shallowness of their arguments.

What I find most amusing is the poutrage generated when I talk about teaching fellow liberals and progressives how to defend themselves with firearms. It seems to be the worst kind of subversion. Bring up the Pink Pistols and who knows what may break loose.

They sure seemed scared of of a single armed black man...can't imagine why.

I carry concealed on campus between my motorcycle to my office and back. I do it to secure the weapon. Its more secure in my office in a safe than in a car or on the motorcycle. Admin knows and its not a problem.

The geek community likes to think it is a meritocracy...race, gender, title, or age are not supposed to matter. However, technical fields of study do not exempt them from the human race. Being a minority prof makes you both a role model and at times a target. That said I love teaching.

The firearms classes on the weekends are also divorced from the University, though a couple of young adjuncts have taken classes from me.

it's called winning an all-too-easy argument.

http://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=9.41.300 You can even carry in Washington State if the college allows it. Colleges make their own rules: South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia allows concealed carry.

251. winning what argument? You made fool out of yourself

but I thought I would give you a troll snack. McDonald won't be overturned by anyone partly because it could begin a right wing attack on other incorporation rulings. The larger reason is that no one will have standing to make a case in our lifetimes. I don't see Brady or anyone else pushing anything through the court system to SCOTUS. Brady lawyers depended on "states rights" cases to argue against McDonald, which is a 14A ruling, not a 2A ruling. I would think it would be harder to do since one of those were pretty much overturned. I'm voting for Obama either way.
http://themoderatevoice.com/78129/mcdonald-v-chicago-second-amendment-applied-to-statesmunicipalities/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McDonald_v._Chicago

BTW, Jerry Brown as California AG supported McDonald

In 2009, while attorney general, Brown filed a friend-of-the-court brief siding with the National Rifle Assn.'s attempt to overturn a gun ban in Chicago. Brown wrote to the U.S. Supreme Court that he feared "California citizens could be deprived of the constitutional right to possess handguns in their homes."

Can employees bring a concealed weapon to a meeting (e.g. staff meetings, disciplinary meetings, performance coaching and evaluation meetings, trainings, campus resource consultations, interviews)?

Yes, if the employee has a valid concealed carry permit and the weapon is carried in accordance with the law, i.e., concealed. For assistance in any situation of concern, such as a performance review, please contact the Office of Human Resources at the link below.

You have never shown that I used $DAYJOB here in the Gun Control group to add authority to my posts despite repetitive claims. Still waiting for that answer.

You have tried to show that my class schedule should have prevented me from posting at times...and failed.

You have made false claims about the law here in CA (and elsewhere) and ignored what should be obvious. Others have figured it out, but you apparently cannot, blinded by your passion.

You have been dancing hard for the last few hours. Trying hard but getting nowhere. You have posted multiple replies and generally worked yourself up to quite a state.

I would give you the answer, but its just too much fun to watch you...maybe some other member will take pity upon you and deliver your from your ongoing embarrassment.

Instead, you kept talking about "exceptions," which was a coy way of trying to say you were some kind of law enforcement honcho, retired FBI, etc.

But now that that's out of the way: you are an African-American professor at the University of Colorado? And a "pro gun" one at that? Did I get that right?

Most weapons are not permitted on campus. For example:

Any knife including a belt buckle knife, dirk dagger, cane sword, pen knife, lipstick knife, switchblade, butterfly knife or any knife that has a blade longer than 2 1/2 inches, opens automatically or has more than one sharp edge

Any gun without written permission...The punishment for having a weapon varies depending on the type of weapon. Punishments can be fines, imprisonment and student judicial sanctions."

301. Stepped in it big time.

 

It's plain as day. They have regulations at the school, which they also have exceptions to, but those regulations BEAR no criminal legal teeth against someone with a California CCW.

He'd be legal even without permission, just subject to being fired/expelled. With permission he is 100% in Coolsville.

304. Nope, quite the opposite. He has never stated he has written permission, and he doesn't, and

meets none of the other criteria for concealed carrying on a California campus.

308. he thinks he is on a roll

thinking he is exposing some dark evil agenda. Either that, he is just being a troll for something to do. Either way, I'm out of troll food.

315. I don't think there's anything "dark" or "evil" about it: I just think these "professor" and

"packing heat" around a California campus (of all places!) claims are simply bogus. I think if they were legitimate, we wouldn't have this big long paired set of sub-threads, full of coy game-playing and semantics and proven falsehoods by the "professor," but, rather either a straightforward "I work on this campus and have written permission from the powers that be to carry a concealed weapon," followed by, if doubt was expressed, "believe what you want."

That's how a legitimate tale of "professors" and "concealed carry on campus" and the like would go. That is hasn't is yet more circumstantial evidence that these dubious claims are bogus, as they undoubtedly are.

322. have you ever lived in California?

so you are basing your whole argument on an over generalization? A stereotype of a state as large and diverse as California? Maybe the Dean is from Montana or northern California.
When I lived there, there were some good liberal and moderate folks, ran into some people who think Rick Perry is a liberal too.
Mike Savage was a local at KSFO.

I went to a church in Vacaville where the minister was really right wing. Went to a church in Wichita, where I was sent after California, the minister was a well loved guy who was believed in liberation theology.

309. Nope: he stepped in it. He claimed he toted a firearm around campus, and this has been shown to be

virtually impossible, unless he's campus police or retired Federal law enforcement. He's neither.

314. I know it can be hard to admit when you are wrong, but you are so embarassingly wrong

 

and ignorant on this subject.

He's legal without permission: per YOUR own link he can avoid school sanctions with permission, but he encounters no legal wrath for carrying in college on a California CCW. You're licked either way.

It's plain as day. They have regulations at the school, which they also have exceptions to, but those regulations BEAR no criminal legal teeth against someone with a California CCW.

He'd be legal even without permission, just subject to being fired/expelled. With permission he is 100% in Coolsville.

316. how about reading the relevant California Penal Code

closer. He said he had permission, now he is letting you make a fool out of yourself and went to bed. If you want to continue to tilt at windmills, that's your bag. That is the problem with creating a reality that no one else shares.

313. It hasn't been "refuted" as there is no one packing heat on CA campuses unless they're cops, retired

Federal law enforcement, or have "written permission."

Our "professor" is neither of the first two, so the argument hinges on the validity of the third claim - a claim you and your friend have made, but the "professor" HAS NOT.

So much for that noise.

319. If he wants to make claims on a public discussion board and retain any credibility he does.

He makes repeated claims about being a "professor," and folds those claims into Appeals to Authority in posts and replies to other posters. Yet he refuses to substantiate those claims, and will not even now clear this whole thing up by simply saying "I teach here and I pack heat on campus with written permission from the powers that be." This he refuses to do.

So, so much for that.

320. NO one is going to tell you where they work. This conversation is academic at best,

 

all that matters is that it IS LEGAL to carry as a civilian a loaded concealed firearm onto a college campus in California with a Cali CCW permit.

There are certain rules that can get you in academic/employment trouble, but there is NO LEGAL PERIL. You've been wrong the whole time. You are personally attacking posters who do not share your views.

What you are doing is disgusting. Argue the issues. Leave these people alone. You're bullying from behind a keyboard, shame on you.

324. No, it's not "academic": make claims on a discussion board, either back them up or quit making them.

It really is that simple.
