    While I haven't been threatened with a gun, I have been verbally threatened in my office by adult students, and had a student pretend to shoot items in the classroom with his hands in the shape of a gun. I really fail to see where other students or faculty or I would have been safer in these situations if we had been armed.

    Yet, the state legislature,  which won't allow faculty to form a union, is considering permitting concealed carry on state property (again). Guns in classrooms. Guns in the child research facilities. Guns in dorms and the student union. Brilliant. Because 18 to 20 year old adolescents can be trusted to make good choices all of the time.

    Of course, the governor's mansion and the state house will be exempted (again).
