WHO DOES THAT?!! You have mature, grown ups who want kids and can't have them, yet people like this are breeding. Some people need to be spayed and neutered.

Mike, I understand the point of your blog. This being: Do not judge the whole for what a fraction is doing. By doing so, a person creates a hasty generalization fallacy in their own argument, which makes it more difficult for myself (and I'm sure others) to see the point of views as valid.
One ethnic group isn't better than the other. One religion isn't better than the other. SOME Muslims are terrorists; not ALL. SOME Americans are biased; not ALL. Another great blog, Mike. Reach one, teach one.
I'm glad the online version says "2011" because today's skybox in the paper says "2010." I was beginning to think y'all found Marty McFly's DeLorean.
Thank you, Mike. That's basically the concept behind my blog. It's not about the second amendment; it's about the emotions of someone carrying one on campus, more or less my own emotions. I don't like being around guns period. They make me nervous and bullets don't have names to them. People may think they are protect themselves by shooting the "opposition," but what if they miss? What if the gun jams and backfires?
Thanks for sharing the dialogue between Sen. Wentworth and Goddard. The latter was unfortunately in that situation and to read his views against this bill says it all. People are quick to jump the gun (no pun intended) yet not look at other options or how things would drastically change...and according to Goddard, not for the better.
Roberttx: It may be that you have to be a certain age to get a CHL, but a child or teenager can come across a gun anytime. Remember the incident at Victoria East campus not too long ago?
Well if that's the case, we're going to have high school or even junior high kids screaming "I'm invoking my right to the Second Amendment" when they shoot someone who may be bullying them. Prevention before intervention.
Just have to say: Exactly, ojama.
OMG, read my posts. All of them. Read them carefully. What I am asking is if they, permanent residents, are paying their taxes, why shouldn't they be allowed to vote? I questioned one statement on "taking their money and be grateful." How can I take someone's tax dollars and not allow them the courtesy of voicing their opinion on how it's spent? They may want the tax dollars for the same thing we all want. That's how I see it. That's my perspective. Goodness. God Bless you all.
Victorian: Thanks to the intellectual manner of Kyle C and the information he provided, I see this. And I thank you for your comments, and I respect them. I am happy in this discussion because I want to learn all perspectives, as well as put my own perspective out there.
However, Waywardwind did not have to disrespect my wishes of no ill words toward the person I was referring to. I deleted my own posts because it is no one's business who my "friend" is, although I will tell you she is my role model and one I can depend on for support. The point was I asked for no ill words. Wayward, you couldn't respect that. Therefore, I'm ending my interaction with you on this topic. God bless.
