Judges stymie profs' efforts to overturn campus carry


Recommended Posts

Many educators believe that they are the sole source for dictating how the general public should act and what freedoms they should exercise.

The social problems of today are the result of educational indoctrination.

It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.”- -Albert Einstein

"True education makes for inequality; the inequality of individuality, the inequality of success, the glorious inequality of talent, of genius; for inequality, not mediocrity, individual superiority, not standardization, is the measure of the progress of the world."" -Felix Schelling (_Pedagogically Speaking_)

“I have never allowed my schooling to interfere with my education.” Mark Twain

“In the first place, God made idiots. That was for practice. Then he made school boards.”  Mark Twain

“I believe that school makes complete fools of our young men, because they see and hear nothing of ordinary life there.”  – Petronius

“Schools have not necessarily much to do with education… they are mainly institutions of control, where basic habits must be inculcated in the young. Education is quite different and has little place in school.” – Winston Churchill

If professors only knew how many of their students were actually carrying in their classrooms...

Statistically it is a very small number.  


If we extrapolate, it gets even smaller. 


A student in class is younger than the average permit holder.  (Age is the prime factor in the others as well)


A student in class is more left leaning than the average permit holder. 


A student in class is less likely to be a gun owner than the population. 


Not everyone with a permit carries.


Given that the best rates of permit holders is low single digit,  it is likely that less than 1%  of students carry.  In some places that number is going to be functionally 0.  In the best places it is still likely to average under 1%. 


There is also the reality that in some classes, that number is going to be lower.  In some classes that number is likely to be higher, but we are still dealing with something in sight of that 1% number on either side. 


The other side of that is in a class of 100 or more, someone is likely to be armed.  But few classes have that kind of enrollment.
