Editorial: Gun ban better for security

Your editorial reveals the hypocrisy of KU and others who want to ban guns from the campus.

"alcohol affects behavior." If KU and others really cared about the safety of its students and others it would ban alcohol. Alcohol contributes to student deaths and injuries far more than guns do. But wait, they can make money off alcohol so no banning it even if it'd make the campus safer.

Letter to the editor: Not entry level

President Trump is doing just fine. Perfect? Nope, but prefer him over a career politician and obviously so did the voters that elected him.

You may not want him, but he is your president. Next time around make sure the Dems run a candidate that isn't crooked and has a real connection with the people.

Letter to the editor: Value KPR

You really need to do more research on NPR. They are not a goverment agapency and are a publicly and privately funded non-profit. They are a private agency just like many non-profits that receive government funding

To be public you must be funded by the government and "owned" by the government, you know like schools, libraries etc.

You really are ignorant aren't you? Yes, I am against all government subsidies to businesses and airports, roads, etc, are a function of government as they serve the public good.

Are they government owned? If not, then they are private.

I came to no conclusion and simple put forth the Duke research that suggests a liberal bias. As I said I don't care if they are liberal or conservative they shouldn't get government funding.

Concealed-carry policy approved at university in Topeka

Your hate blinds you to constructive discussion. Who says it has to be mandatory? You really are an embarrassment to teachers and I pit the students who had you as a teacher.

Concealed-carry policy approved at university in Topeka

"Faculty Senate President Shaun Schmidt said the group is confident Washburn police will respond to weapon-related emergencies, but his main concern is with potential suicides and accidental discharges."

This is where their focus should be and they should be proactive in preventing suicides and accidental discharges. As educators they should educate. Teach students how to properly handle and store weapons and the dangers and consequences of not doing it. Facilitate safe gun handling, provide in-dorm and outside classrooms gun safes like the ones hotels use in the rooms.

Help them understand that someone may use their gun to commit suicide so they need to lock it away when not on their person.

Make sure mental health services are available to students and teach people to know the signs of someone in danger and distress.

Ken, you state that it is not liberal like it is fact because you said so. Whether it is liberal or not is more of perception than fact. The Duke research is similar to the posts here. Look at the political leanings of those that support KPR and those that don't.

I don't care if the station is liberal or conservative I don't believe government should fund it. Not a role for government to single out a private entity to subsidize and compete against similar businesses.

Dorothy as an older person why do you resort to just juvenile tactics such as making stuff up? I've never said the Kochs were my heroes but you state it to somehow make a childish point. Grow up and discuss the issue based on facts and reason. We can disagree and still be civil and mature.
