We'll be patiently waiting.
Okay, I'll play.

Thank you again for your email. We appreciate you addressing this with us in a proactive fashion. Based on your representations about this event and the individuals who will be participating in it, we will not take action against students under our Code of Student Conduct solely for legal possession of a weapon while participating in this walk.
You'll no doubt recall that message from a member of the OSU legal team sent to you on 4/17/14. From the wording of the email it is clear that the University is giving a narrow exception to the normal enforcement of the Student Code of Conduct for the event, and not for open carry on campus as a regular practice.
I know you feel strongly about this, but attempting to claim that it is something that it is not can only make you either look silly in the eyes of those who know the real score or just be flat out dishonest.
The assertion made by someone who claims knowledge of various things was "Because universities
in their responses have indicated that participation in these events is an exercise of free speech
." (my red and bold) Note the use of "universities" (PLURAL) and "free speech"
My request was "Please share with us ALL
of the universities that have indicated such a thing - with dates, the person who indicated so, and quotes of their alleged communication which supports your assertion." The just quoted sentence indicates that I recognized the plural language
used in the original assertion. Furthermore, the "indicated such a thing" refers to the alleged reference to "free speech
". I see no such reference in the 4/17/14 communication from OSU, and even if it existed, OSU is merely *one* university, not "universities".
So, rather than dodging the question, and making scurrilous accusations, why don't you come back with something that supports the assertions made?
I'll be patiently waiting for you to supply quotes (etc) from ALL the universities
that have "indicated that participation in these events in an exercise of free speech" - and more specifically, that the university was waiving the Student Code of Conduct for that reason.
Yes, I do believe in open carry. An openly armed man is clear in his intentions. Concealed carriers are sneaks and skulkers and elitist, boot licking, political contribution making, running dog lackies of The Man. <wink> (thx grumpycoconut - OpenCarry.org)
