(Boulder Daily Camera)   Boulder physics professor wants to cancel classes if a student has a concealed weapons permit, saying it would dampen classroom debate. Because everyone knows gunfights often break out during physics debates   ( divider line

"...and then during discussion, Tyffiney started arguing for 26 dimension string theory. Prof. Peterson had already told the biatch 3 times that it doesn't account for massless fermions, so I had to draw on the biatch so she'd shut up."

Back in my freshman year of college, I was in one of my many English classes, and we were discussing this short story/poem about young women and beauty.

Something about how "one little comment will send me over the edge, into anorexia or worse" or something like that. A typical "white woman in her early 20s problem" poem.

I made a comment about "If one little comment can send her into the extreme of anorexia or worse, how is she going to deal with criticism later in life?"

Then this girl (this class had a 3:1 female to male ratio) said "Obviously, you aren't a female".

To which I replied "Obviously I'm not. What gave it away?"

Now, if she had a concealed weapon, she would have shot me dead. SHOT ME DEAD. And people would have applauded.

That is how intense English poetry discussions are.

This is a geology pick. Used in a fight it is no laughing matter.

William Buckland would approve.

//too obscure?

Where shall we our great Professor inter
That in peace may rest his bones?
If we hew him a rocky sepulchre
He'll rise and break the stones
And examine each stratum that lies around
For he's quite in his element underground

Actually, if you try to argue electron flow as the "correct" direction for the arrow in a circuit with an engineer, there WILL be a fight with any and all weapons within arm's reach.

Mmmm..... Tron flow vs. hole flow debate. Who cares as long as the things in the middle work.

remus: That was breathtakingly funny to watch the report. So, you're saying that a professionally trained shooter with exact knowledge of who is armed in the classroom is somehow able to shoot them before they can draw? Really? Amazing!

// I kept screaming; let's try this with an equally untrained shooter and give them zero knowledge that anyone in the classroom might be carrying concealed. Now, let's watch what happens....

That video has been around forever. It was made by an anti-gun group to show, well, precisely what they wanted it to show. They just managed to get it on TV when the Aurora shooting happened. I'll even let them have their contrived situation so long as I get to designate my own trained CCW: Rob Leatham a man that can draw and put six rounds on six 8-inch targets in less than 3 seconds.

Ya he's the best in the world, so what? If they can stack it with their guy, I want to stack it with mine :).

Dimensio: Nick Nostril: Callous: Well none of the bloodbaths over parking spaces and road rage that the anti-gunners predicted occurred when concealed carry was legalized in all but 1 state. None of the bloodbaths the anti-gunners predicted happened when concealed carry in bars was legalized. So clearly they can't be wrong and there will be bloodbaths in the classroom over coarse material now that concealed carry has been legalized there.

But if another Cho shows up, you'll have an Old WestTM shootout with lots of innocents killed in the crossfire, as opposed to simply getting lined up and executed. Sure they'll be just as dead, but it's better that the nutter executes them than someone accidentally get shot in the crossfire.

/ or something like that that I learnt on ABC

I am unaware of any ABC news report that concluded as you have stated. I am aware of an ABC news report that indicated that a shooter who has been informed in advance of the identity of a single armed student who has undertaken no firearms usage training will be able to target and shoot that armed student, thus proving that an armed civilian will never, under any circumstances, be able to stop an armed attacker.

That is why I refuse to wear my "I am carrying a concealed weapon" sandwich board when I leave my house. I bet that throws off ABC's "findings".

He's got it backwards- the classroom needs more guns, not less. Gun-saturated environments keep everyone on level ground, so no one has an advantage. This type of gun saturation is the reason there is never any violence inside gangs.

"...Then Prof. Peterson got up in my face and said 'You idiot, bosons are massless!'. Last month, I would have punched his ass out, but last week he told us if we were carrying he was going to carry too and he's been open carrying a 45 with a 17 round magazine so I just sat down. He shot Tyffiney in the kneecap and then we started our in class exercises on gauge theory."
