Over at Concealed Carry on Campus, writer W. Scott Lewis responds to Colin Goddard’s Op-Ed at CNN.com
It may sound like a simple platitude, but danger can strike anywhere. It simply doesn’t make sense to limit a person’s ability to protect himself or herself, without good cause. Colin’s heart is clearly in the right place, but like all other opponents of campus carry, he fails to show good cause for prohibiting licensed concealed carry on Texas college campuses.
Unlike W. Scott Lewis, I don’t think Colin’s heart is in the right place. It might be smart politics to take him seriously, and treat him kindly, but I can’t find it in my heart to forgive a person who, after getting shot 4 times while laying helplessly on the floor, wants to legally mandate that rest of us be helpless as well.
