    Just wait a few more months as our economy goes down the tubes thanks to Obama, then you will start to see more desparate people doing more desparate acts.

    You are SPOT ON! Which is why I'm getting my CCC. Another gift from the liberal mind set. We got 4 more years for Obama to destroy America, ACLU is heck bent on removing G-d from everything, no morality, no consequences, no disciplining your children, aha but we do get birth control pills. Lovely.

    So yes, the fundamental change is progressing. We will be a 3rd world dictatership by 2014. Congrats.

    Have you looked at the murder rates in some of our cities, say Detroit, Chicago, Durham? Come out from under your rock!

    This is why I love doing online courses. I can sit in the comfort and security of my home and complete my education with the protection of a lawfully owned firearm and strong castle doctrine laws. I'd rather that than having to go into the victim disarmament zones known as college campuses.

    I'm glad the crimminals are respecting the law of no guns on a school campus. The world is now a better place. lol

    Liberals have decided that incarceration does no good-so why do it?? Answer---to stop this dummy!!-baldchip

    Huh, when did liberals decide that? The problem is that non-violent people are overcrowding the prisons due to ‘mandatory sentences’ mostly related to possession charges and VIOLENT CRIMINALS are released EARLY because there is not enough beds to house everyone. A half ounce of weed can land you 5 years but assault with intent to kill is maybe 6 months….

    That must be why the crime rate is LOWER now than when Obama took office right? (It has not been this low since 1968 for the nation on average.)

    Please note; I am not giving any particular person credit however just pointing out the sky ain’t falling.

    It's sad that most areas around NCSU are so dangerous now...
