Dr. John Holdnak, President of Florida’s Gulf Coast State College, stopped by the League of Women Voter’s “Gun Summit”to share his opinions on campus carry. His argument against firearms freedom? An armed self-defender couldn’t afford to shoot at bad guys. Financially. The family of bystanders shot by mistake would sue the you-know-what out anyone who dared attempt to take out an active shooter/terrorist before he slaughtered unarmed students, faculty or staff. What kind of calculus is that? But wait. It gets better/worse . . .
He argues that current law – where legally armed Floridians can stash their guns in their vehicles on campus – represents a clear and present danger to staff. But…
At least my faculty and I have a head start. If there’s a student and they’re upset and they say ‘I’m so angry at you I don’t know what I’ll sit wait right here I’ll be back in a minute’ at least you got a head start with that.
A head start to do what? Call Valencia College’s unarmed campus police? Get a gun? Wait. No. Not that. Never that!
Anyway, at least he’s thinking ahead. Not with his head. But ahead. With his head up his behind. Sorry, couldn’t resist. I mean, this guy says he’d be OK with campus carry if he could ring the campus with metal detectors to detect legally carried firearms and then follow their owner. And they say we’re paranoid.
