Jim Manley on Concealed Carry on Campus

On Wednesday, 1 May 2013, my wife Diana will interview gun rights litigator Jim Manley about "Concealed Carry on Campus" on Philosophy in Action Radio. This episode of internet radio airs at 6 pm PT / 7 MT / 8 CT / 9 ET in our live studio. If you miss that live broadcast, you can always listen to the podcast later:

Here's the link and the show description:

Many people assume that college campuses are – and should be – gun free zones. Jim Manley will explain why concealed carry permit holders should be permitted to carry on campus.

Jim Manley is a Staff Attorney at Mountain States Legal Foundation. He received his J.D. from the University of Colorado Law School, where he served as an Associate Editor of the Law Review and President of the Federalist Society. Jim was the lead attorney on the many Mountain States Legal Foundation cases concerning firearms, including Students for Concealed Carry on Campus v. Regents of the University of Colorado, which was a state court challenge to the University's ban on licensed concealed carry on campus.

Thanks for the tip. The attempt has failed yet again in TX due to despicable politics in the state Senate. I note the Gov. and Lt. Gov. didn't go the wall despite their rhetoric.

I gave it my best testimony - the House approved but we couldn't even get that far in the Senate.

Keep it up in other states.

In 30 seconds, a reasonably competent shooter can shoot 20 people. The campus cops are 5 minutes away.

My testimony was based on the fact that all the defensive measures (run, hide, flee) sacrifice the first 20 to 30. Is that OK?
