From TTAG’s mailbag comes a question from student Tyler Reidhead. Tyler’s predicament is the same faced by students on most college campuses:
Recently my university sent out a mass email outlining their emergency procedures in case of natural disaster, fire, or “active shooter scenario”. The email and accompanying video was full of the “don’t worry, we’ll keep you safe” bs that one would expect from the officials at a gun-free campus. I was thoroughly disgusted and emailed my friendly neighborhood campus police chief with my concerns. Apparently he wants to meet with me to discuss “weapons on campus”.
My question is this: We all talk about how great it is to stand up for our rights, how important the 2A is, etc. But when an opportunity to discuss these issues with someone in authority to do something about them presents itself, what are some good resources for material to present my case?
So to answer young Tyler, we throw it open to the best resource we know – the cumulative knowledge base that is the Armed Intelligentsia.
