Well, I wonder if Helmke has been cleared to state policy for the schools.
so basically they are saying college kids are stupid and can't be trusted...
the college kids I have met that carry are more responsible than their non carrying peers (and yes I think Ramm is a good example of this)
I am not much older than college kids and I greatly take offense to many of the statements they make.
as far as suicides are concerned... if someone wants to do it they will do it no matter what. The fact that a gun is there is immaterial. If there is no gun available they will just OD, hang themselves, or bleed out from a knife cut.
I would like to see the stats they have on guns influencing binge drinking. I think carrying decreases alcohol consumption since most folks I know won't drink when they carry.
Guess I can sum it up by saying ARGH!
Careful there, you may collapse the whole economy of Athens
No, they say you smoke crack!
" . . . college gun owners are more likely than other students to binge drink, need a drink first thing in the morning, use cocaine or crack, be arrested for a DUI, vandalize property, and get in trouble with the police."
Where do they get those numbers???
The original of the "report" (not just the news release) is available here.
My head started to hurt just reading the overview on the brady site...
Footnotes 58 and 63 appear to contain the sources supporting these claims, if any bright college students are motivated to check up on the Brady Center's research skills.
You will note that FN 63 tarnishes gun owners as a whole (not just college students) over the general population.
Interesting comment over at the High Road.
I wonder if they normed for sex?
