    Did anybody read this thing yet? It’s woefully uninformed opinion, quite likely written by an individual who has never fired, let alone touched or even seen a gun in real life. I guess this is quite typical of the “educated” Obama voter we’ve been hearing about in the pro-Obama media.

    We all need to reply to Sally Sanderson’s ignorant screed post haste, so as to refute all the numerous naive sentiments she submitted.

    The site did not have any comments posted as of yet – I’m guessing they’re not publishing them. You’re welcome to try, but BE POLITE. This is a young, impressionable mind and you’re acting as a 2A ambassador with every word.

    Sebastian – programming note – the link to Cam’s blog in your sidebar points to (what I believe is) an old and busted URL and not the “on tap” blog that you successfully referenced in the main body of your story. FYI. (Unless there’s a reason for that in which case I apologize for being a butinski.)

    +1, J Dock. I went there and commented earlier, I guess it didn’t take. My comment was to the effect of, “glad to see you taking an interest, if you REALLY want to know about firearms, get instruction, go to a range and shoot.”
    Let’s see if we can turn some of these people into shooters themselves, instead of just going over there and ripping her to shreds.

    Sadly, she goes to Michigan Tech. Usually Michigan folks outside of the immediate Detroit area show more sense about firearms.

    Sadness, indeed.

    That’s the Michigan Tech University’s college newspaper, the Lode. (MTU used to be Michigan College of Mining & Technology; hence the Lode as the campus newspaper.)

    Michigan Tech is my alma mater (grad school).

    There are several shooting-friendly communities at MTU; one of them is an official student group called the Pistol Club. (They meet at a range in the basement of the Student Activities Center…or did when I was a member.) There are classes in air-rifle marksmenship offered as a PE elective at MTU, which are held in the same range.

    Students even have the option of keeping a hunting rifle or shotgun in a special locker in the dorms.

    Apparently this author is not a part of that community, or failed to learn a few basic things about firearms, rights, and Supreme Court cases.

    Sad, but not too surprising. Like most colleges, MTU has a small but vocal sect of students and teachers who are hard-left and ill-informed about any other perspective. Like some Tech schools, it has a larger and moderately-quiet community of conservative-oriented people.
