Back in North Texas a young coed was visibly upset when interviewed on TV. The guy sitting next to her in class might whip out his concealed carry gun and start shooting, she feared. A libertarian would ask why she also didn’t fear that he might suddenly start bashing her with his MacBook or stabbing her with his BIC pen? Or maybe whipping out his concealed carry phallus and raping her? This is, after all, the same guy who has been sitting next to her all semester. Why the sudden irrational fear over a gun?
Why isn’t she reassured that another student sitting nearby with a gun will jump in and defend her? Why, in fact, doesn’t she just grow up, act like a responsible adult, get handgun certified and defend herself?
Maybe people just need to stop coddling and being coddled.

Gun culture, anti-gun culture and Texas campus carry
[The anti-gun culture has nothing but childish insults so it seems entirely appropriate to speak to them as if they were children. Something like, “Go someplace else now, the adults are talking.” Or perhaps better yet tell them, “Grow up and act like adults instead of spoiled children.”—Joe]
