College Campus Gun Laws

Arming citizens could help security

I tend to agree with that article. A "gun free zone" on a college campus does not really help anything. I can not recall any "gone postal" incidents at a college, only at middle or high schools. All of the "gone postal" incidents at middle and high schools could have been stopped sooner if the students did not have to wait for the police. I am not advocating arming underage people, but the teachers are also banned from any sort of protection.

I could not own a firearm while I lived on campus, and that contributed to me moving off campus (and it was waaaay cheaper). I probably would not carry on campus if I could, but I would feel better knowing that Sam is.
