Guns on Arkansas college campuses haven't caused any notable problems during the first semester they've been allowed, a variety of administrators from the state's largest universities said at a legislative hearing Thursday on campus safety.

Insightful. Now we learn that abortion, guns, driving, alcohol, tobacco, and bacon are all equivalent. Maybe we should make it simpler and just say everything is the same thing. This way we can avoid addressing every problem. Stand back, everybody. Geniuses at work.

I'll keep my BLTs and reliable Ruger SR9, thank you.

Hey Boltar - Stop lying. I answered your question. It just wasn't the answer your broken brain can process. Since you seem to lack the ability to do so allow me to cut to the chase. The answer is 0. Guns are inanimate objects and however they are associated is by a human hand.
.
So, Boltar, if I drop the mic on you and it makes a loud noise what percentage of mic drops involve microphones?

The anonymous troll says 0% of shootings involve firearms, and he considers that a victory. Such absurdity proves he is truly unfit to engage in civil discourse, but it does demonstrate one reason he chooses to remain anonymous. I, too, would be embarrassed to attach my name to that asinine comment.

Hey Boltar - That anonymous troll just kicked your a$$ and made you like it. Your participation trophy is in the mail.

At least you have undeniably admitted you are, in fact, an anonymous troll, and your patently absurd statement is documented to your discredit, so I certainly welcome this exchange and have no problem leaving you to enjoy your delusional interpretation. Enjoy your pretended victory, Pyrrhus.

GeneralMac, since you support Sarah Cade's statement that her AR-15 is not an assault rifle until she assaults someone with it, do you agree that the AR-15 is an assault rifle when other people use it to kill dozens of people within a few minutes? How about the AR-15s the Las Vegas concert shooter used to kill dozens and wound hundreds within 10 minutes from a distance of a quarter mile and more? Were those not assault rifles? Whatever Sarah chooses to call it or not call it, how many on-target rounds per second and per minute do you suppose Sarah can fire with her AR-15 and how many on-target rounds can she fire with a semi-automatic hunting rifle with normal hunting-capacity magazines? How many more mass shootings by shooters shooting AR-15s do you suppose it will take before Sarah begins to have second thoughts about her relationship with her AR-15?

Out of curiosity, I'm wondering how many of the folks in this conversation have taken the time or effort to obtain one of the new enhanced licenses, or are you just listening to what everyone else is saying about it? I have obtained one of the new "E-CHCLs", and find it to be a pretty useful thing. This is not something for your average gunslinger, with the ASP's process, these are some of the most vetted and regulated group of citizens short of our law enforcement officers. Your enhanced carriers are definitely not the folks who go around threatening or shooting up the neighborhoods on any regular basis, the vetting process does work to discourage that sort of behavior. Nor are they the folks who waltz into Wal-Mart or Starbucks openly packing a .45 on their hip, upsetting the neighbors.

It seems that the predictions of the various naysayers have failed to come to pass, thus they need to yell and protest louder to conceal that they were wrong in their predictions.

Hey tomezell - I recently received my enhanced carry license and you are absolutely correct. By all accounts concealed carry is an incredibly low risk proposition that provides opportunity to exercise individual rights as guaranteed by the constitution for personal protection. The gun grabbers aren't anti gun as much as they are anti individual liberty.
.
And who's going to tell Boltar the definition of "inanimate object"? The answer to your question, Boltar, is still 0. An inanimate object cannot "involve" anything. Zero. That's the answer to your question. Anything else you need answering?
