Binky-you seem to be saying that using a weapon to defend yourself against someone stronger than you, smarter than you or even armed makes you some kind of coward? My 18 yr old daughter is 5'2" and 120 lbs. Are you advocating she needs to take her lumps and be a victim because most any male in society physically outmatches her? We live in a society where young women are victimized every day by a society that allows this. Green River Killer comes to mind. If just one of those 50+ women had a handgun what might have the outcome been?When it's a matter of life or death(your own) you don't think the advantage of having a weapon is acceptable in our society.
On Open Carry at Starbucks

On January 31st, 2006 the Virginia Legislature defeated HB1572. It was a proposed law to allow licensed CCW holders to carry on Campus in the State. Larry Hinker, A Va-Tech spokesman, released the following statement. "I'm sure the University Community is appreciateive of the General Assembly's action because this will help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our campus."15 months later a deranged student murdered two dorm residents and then returned, HOURS later, and murdered another thirty law abiding citizens.
How'd that work out for you Larry? Sleep well at night knowing you are a shill for a cowardly administration that allowed, even encouraged, this tragedy to take place?
Those who want to boycott Starbucks for allowing people to lawfully assemble and exercise their inalienable rights really ought to look into a mirror and ask themselves what other rights they would like to abolish because someone might feel uncomortable when someone exercises them in public.
