I was very pleasantly surprised at how well-balanced this Associated Press article was:

Deseret Morning News: U. student says carrying pistol makes him feel safer

I actually read this article in the Herald Journal first, but can't find it online. That one had a better picture of Brent Tenney holding his Glock, with the U of U in the background. :D

There is an abridged version of this article in, of all places, the Chicago Sun-Times.

Here is the same article (somewhat less abridged) in another Chicago paper, the Herald News Online:
Guns OK on campus - ARMED AND PROTECTED?

This one does have the photo I was looking for. Congratulations, Brent!


As an interesting side note, I attended the Utah Shooting Sports Council (USSC) meeting after yesterday's gun-show. The meeting was being held in a side-room. The doors were still open while forum member Clark Aposhian was talking about what went on in this year's legislative session, when he saw someone passing by outside the doors and called him in. It turned out to be Brent Tenney and his brother. It was interesting to meet the person I had read about just that morning in this article.

I thought Curt Oda's sword comment interesting, only because I study the Renaissance martial arts, and follow the plethora of sword attacks in Great Brittain. (Geez, if there's ever a reason to not ban guns!)

Using a sword effectively requires some training. Without training, people can still get hurt, and in a few cases die. With training, a sharp sword is fearful, highly efficient killing tool.

Guns allow for much more effective self-defense. Being small, weak, old, or in a wheelchair doesn't prevent one from defending oneself.

To get an idea of how swords cut:

And the type of training:
(14 seconds)
(11 seconds)
(12 seconds)
(14 seconds)

Good thing we have guns. I can't see grandma doing any of that.

i strongly agree with that student, as a student myself i feel the same as him that i will be able to protect myself in case i need to. the gal that mentioned "guns and alcohol don't mix" probably don't know the law behind carrying with alcohol present in your body. all in all its a good article and other states should really open their eyes and realize that its not a bad idea to have honest and safe people to carry for safety and protection. :)

The same AP article was on MSNBC as well: Utah only state to allow guns at college

I question the title, however. If I'm not mistaken, Oregon also allows concealed carry with permit on college campuses. I'll have to try to look that up to verify it.

Also, Virginia does not prohibit it by statute, but does not preempt schools like Virginia Tech from banning it by policy.
