A real dilemma for me....... Your input and perspective is welcome and needed. 1 - Virgina tech and others. Should college campuses allow licensed students to carry and possess guns on campus? The nays say guns, young people, and alcohol / poor judgment / hot heads don't mix - you're asking for MORE trouble. 2 - My son moved into his new house just last week. A great day for him and all of us. He asks for his pistol (a C-9) to take with him. I deflect the answer cause I'm not sure I want him to have it........ see item 1 above, under the NAY reasons category. He could go buy another pistol today and I'd never know. So. Am I a hypocrite? I was quick to jump on the "arm the kids" in school parade. Now, when my sometimes-I-party son wants a gun, to protect HIS home!!! I'm nervous. I worry about him having a gun. He's 22, no military or LE training. He's taken classes and I've shot with him many times. But, I'm nervous. I'd rather be a nervous hypocrite, than have something go wrong during a "party", etc. When it's someone else's kid in a distant place, it's easier to put this into a box and look at it "clearly". My kid, real close, and it's not so easy for me any more. Being a dad is a tough job...... You all can really help me think about this one.
