I have to say, I’m pretty proud of the response by Purdue students to the anti-gun op-ed piece that ran on the 24th, which I blogged about yesterday. Not one, but two excellent letters appeared in the Exponent, which quite accurately refuted the points made by the original op-ed writer.
Guns on campus, and in off-campus housing is a touchy issue, I agree 100% with that. I know that some of the apartments in the area have a strict no-firearms policy; but at the same time I knew students who kept legally owned firearms in those apartments all the same.
I am proud of the response by several Purdue students though; I have always believed that engineers should be able to understand that a firearm is nothing more than an inanimate machine better than those hippy-dippy pot smokers at IU (I keed, I keed).
I attended Rose-Hulman. It’s difficult to imagine that letter making it into our newspaper to begin with.
