Students at George Mason University (GMU) have been notified that armed protesters may show up on campus ahead of President Obama’s town hall on gun control Thursday evening.
In an email sent to the student body, university police Chief Thomas Longo said authorities were expecting protests ahead of the event.
“Due to the sensitive nature of the topic, we will likely see protesters on campus — some of whom may be carrying weapons,” Longo said in the email obtained by The Washington Free Beacon.
He reminded students that it is lawful to openly carry firearms in outdoor spaces on campus.
“Please be advised that it is lawful to carry firearms in Virginia, and this includes at public outdoor spaces on our campus,” he said.
“University police are aware of this and will have officers present to ensure that all protesters remain law-abiding and maintain the safety and well-being of Mason’s faculty, students and staff,” he continued.
Of course there will be no firearms allowed inside the building where the town hall is being held, and there will obviously be metal detectors and Secret Service there to protect the President, but this still still makes me incredibly nervous.
Let's face it these gun nuts are all kinds of unhinged, their rhetoric is almost unintelligible at this point, and it only takes one mistake for some 2nd Amendment nutjob to get inside and do something horrific to the man working night and day to keep us all safe.
Personally I would like to see a gun free zone around the President that extended for about a mile. And anyone caught with a gun would have their shiny metal penis extender taken away permanently and then would be locked up until the President was safely back at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
