Oklahoma campus carry stalls

My previous coverage here.

OK senators can't come up with an agreement. Not that the bill does me a whole lot of good. It allows veterans to carry on campus, which I don't agree with because I think that it is giving "privileges" to a class of citizens instead of freeing up a right to be exercised by all citizens in general.

Here is a dose of stupid for today:
University of Oklahoma President David Boren had argued the bill would hurt recruitment of students and faculty. It also would pose a dilemma for police trying to determine whether a person wielding a weapon was a "deranged gunman or someone who thinks he is doing good vigilante work."

So if you defend yourself you are a "vigilante." My understanding of a vigilante is someone who goes about looking to find bad guys and engage them in combat, not the other way around. But this is coming from a scumbag bureaucrat who has no concept of personal responsibility or self defense, so take it as a grain of salt.
