FromDC2Iowa: Peace Through War; Security Through Weaponry

Excerpted from this post at FromDC2Iowa

Weaponry on Campus: Wrong Reasons, Wrong Result. Republican
presidential candidate, Governor Mike Huckabee, asked about his
conservative credentials, once said "I'm a conservative all right; I'm
just not angry about it." That's kind of how I am about bringing guns
onto the UI campus -- something that looks close to inevitable at this
point. I think it's a terrible thing to do, but I'm not angry about
it. Just disappointed and sad. Since I'll be teaching this afternoon
while the public meeting is going on, I thought I'd put some of my
thoughts into the debate in this way. We should not be surprised that,
since this groundswell of support for weaponry has come out of the
wrong governance model, using the wrong process, relying on the wrong
reasons, the advocates have come up with the wrong proposal.
