Guns matter more than lives.

This student needs to ask his president why he is putting up with this bullshit. Is it because he wants the legislature to fund a load of new projects? No, surely no university president could be so callous.

... open fire because they mistook a candy bar for a firearm, and everyone died but the last man standing, would you be convinced that campus carry should be illegal? No.

You have been "debating" this for five years and have become more entrenched that needless deaths from guns is just part of gun ownership.

So what's the point? Why would I put one ounce of energy into arguing with you?

That's what's known as Colonism, as described by the late great Terry Pratchett:

"Sergeant Colon had a broad education. He´d been to the school of My Dad Always Said, the College of It Stands to Reason, and was now a postgraduate student at the University of What Some Bloke In the Pub Told Me."

Jingo, Terry Pratchett

for concealed carry on state college campuses?
Surely there would be story after story of students with concealed carry licenses shooting other students or teachers?
Can you post links to those shootings?

He prefers to change the subject or resort to personal attacks, something that has gotten him numerous hides and at least 3 vacations from DU.
