    Default University Shooting just south of us.

    Well, looks like we have another university shooting. Northern Illinois University. According to the radio, approximately 18 people were shot.

    I am elementary pe teacher in the same town that this happened. This is scary. I was leaving for home right after it happened. My brother in law was in class in the building right next to the building where it happened. We could not get a hold of him for a half hour after it happened and it was a scary and tense half hour. Our prayers for everyone involved in this. It is hard to believe it actually happened here. You always think it happens somewhere else and won't happen to you.

    Yes make teachers take fire arms training and arm them in public schools as part of the job. They make pistols with finger print reconnection. Also let those collage kids carry guns if they want to. This would stop dead.
    I screwed up and let me carry permit expire. Now I will have to do it all over again. Going in front of the judge and all.

    nope I have the same rights to carry as a guy wearing a suit and tie. I need to start a thread to find reasons to tell them why I want a carry permit. That would be fun.
