My classmates in my program are refreshingly pro-gun. They've been going to the shooting ranges and gun shows in big groups.
A dozen or two people (including me) are going in two weeks to get our CCWs.
Naturally though our campus is a strict gun free zone. We are soon to be doctors, and some days we have our patients lives in our hands, literally, but we are not permitted to have firearms on the premises. It seems to me that if a doctor has a patient that may be incapacitated, it is not only his right to defend if necessary, it is his duty. Why would anyone prohibit this? Guns are dangerous, sure, but so are many, many other things in a hospital.
It's bizarro world.
