I wouldn't even know where to begin to look for a paper that takes non-staff articles. I'm mostly writing the article to get out my opinion and to fight alot of myths I hear around school (we're close to a very anti-gun city, so it trickles down).

With luck, some kid'll take it to their parent and it'll influence them.

Hmm, that's a good idea, I'll see what I can re-write before the deadline next week. Thanks.
