Pro Gun Student Shot – Wild Rose Defections

Pro Gun Student Shot – Wild Rose Defections

Nathan Scott is a student at Florida State University in Tallahassee. He has a job working in the school library and is a member of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus at FSU. And he is a (barely) walking example of why his cause is so crucial, after being shot in the library recently and having no way to defend himself.


Just after midnight on Nov. 20, 2014, Nathan Scott was shot while working at the FSU library. A disturbed former student with paranoid delusions opened fire with a pistol at the library’s front door. Being unarmed, all Nathan could do was run – as best he could with a bullet wound in his leg – and warn other students. Another student, an Army combat infantry veteran, took cover when the shooting started, and though both he and Nathan Scott had the training, skill, and opportunity to end the attack almost as soon as it began, neither was armed because, being law-abiding citizens, they both were obeying Florida’s law against having a gun on campus. Of course the man randomly shooting people was not impeded in any way by Florida’s “No Guns on Campus” law.

Wild Rose Defections

Alberta’s Tories dreaded Danielle Smith’s Wildrose coming long before the vibrant leader took her seat in the legislature.

Two months after Smith took the party’s reins in 2009, Progressive Conservative Premier Ed Stelmach began attacking Wildrose policies for being “vague” and “draconian.”

Little more than a year later, Stelmach announced he was leaving, citing concerns the next election campaign would target him personally with attack ads.

“This type of U.S.-style wedge politics is coming into Canada, and it comes at our peril,” he warned.

Smith had her way with the Tories.

Before she led the defection of nine Wildrose MLAs to the governing PCs on Wednesday, she chased Stelmach’s successor, Alison Redford, out of politics. She also championed the most effective official Opposition Alberta has seen since the Laurence Decore Liberals of the 1990s.
