One more hoplophobe talks out of her fourth point of contact…

…and this time it’s Kathy Clay-Little, publisher of African-American Reflections, in the San Antonio Express-News (more on a certain part of that in a moment)…

Unless things have changed drastically over the years, college is a place where still-maturing kids drink and party too much. Now parents who send their kids to Texas colleges and universities can worry about their kids getting shot by friendly fire at alcohol-fueled parties. Guns and alcohol don’t mix well, whether it’s at the bar down the street or the most elite college campus in Texas.

Really? How has the whole guns-in-bars thing gone in other states? Well, let’s take a look at one in particular, Tennessee (h/t Linoge):

“Honestly, not a whole lot has changed. It isn’t like the okay corral with people walking in with guns in the restaurants,” said Bart Fricks, COO of the Copper Cellar Corp., which owns more than a dozen restaurants in East Tennessee.

“A lot of it was much to do about nothing,” Fricks added.

Not like the O.K. Corral? Imagine that! Sure that’s just one state, but as Mike said here, they’ve been doing the same thing for a pretty good while and there haven’t been any issues there either. Would it really be so different in Texas?

And how about the sad irony of a black columnist presuming to deny certain people a right that so many people fought to preserve for her and her fellow blacks? I’m sure she’s not even aware of it, though. A lot of folks on that side of this debate seem to have no sense of it.

    Yeah, but this is different. The amendment gives shitloads of free handguns to college students to carry concealed. It’s only logical that they will all end up at the alcohol-fueled party together and…

    Oh, the bill doesn’t hand out free guns? Well, shit, that only leaves those of us who are over 21 and have been fingerprinted, had extensive (read: FBI) background checks, and already carry guns and don’t shoot up alcohol-fueled parties! How are we gonna get published in the Express Catbox Liner with that crap (read: the truth)?

    It really is strange that these unending prognostications of doom and gloom, blood in the streets, cats and dogs sleeping together just never quite come true.

    Why, it is almost like these anti-rights cultists have no idea what they are talking about…
