Lets play finish the article! Here’s the headline:
No cheating first we need to collect ideas of what happened.
First up it’s a student so my immediate guess is this individual was at a Fraternity or Sorority when this incident occurred. Write down if you agree or disagree, the answer follows.
I am shocked, I say shocked that an upstanding young student from the Greek system would find himself in such a position. It’s not like this thing hasn’t happened before. As a note, there was an individual that fell at WSU August 23rd, though it was just a party house not associated with the Greek system.
Next wild ass guess, though I will admit it’s not really that wild… Alcohol was a factor in the accident! What say you gentle reader, do you think this individual was sober when he decided to venture across the top of his humble abode?
[sarcasm]Damn, I was really thinking he was stone cold sober![/sarcasm]
How sad is it that I can just read the headline and know exactly what happened like a standard write-up with fill in the blanks. The only difference in the name of the individual, frat house, school, and responding agency.
Why would I bring this all up though? Well remember though that these individuals are not the majority of students and yet they are the shining examples used by the anti-rights cultists that concealed carry shouldn’t be allowed on campus. Unsurprisingly though their examples are often criminals as well. Not to mention the criminal incidents that don’t get reported by the media, some so horrible they should issue hunting tags for the animals who did it. All the while the school looks the other way or attempts to blame the victim (seriously). (As a FYI, that references two different independent incidents believe it or not.) WSU doesn’t like the black eye these types of events bring and does anything it can to hide it.
I find it interesting though that the example group our opponents use against college carry often find themselves in situations that would otherwise preclude them from carrying. Drunk, underage, drug use, etc. Yet our opponents use them as their example to disarm others who merely go to class and go home. Ensuring that they can remain easy victims for the predators they oh so clearly support.
As a side note, we often talk about self-defense and avoiding risky situations. Going into Greek row, more specifically attending any kind of party there I consider high risk, especially for the fairer sex. It’s not the way it should be, but it’s the way it is. Know that it’s high risk and act accordingly, preferably just avoid the damn thing.
