    Default Allowing concealed carry handguns on college campuses

    Yay or nay and your reasons/argument.

    Yay - Something needs to be done. The whole thing is getting out of hand. Every other week there is a shooting or at least someone brandishing a fire arm. The people that have properly done what needs to be done in order to qualify to carry a concealed hand gun shouldn't be denied their right to defend themselves and others. Isn't that what they went through the trouble of getting their concealed carry permit for in the first place?

    I'm good with it. If anything, I think it would be an inherently safer place to have them than most other places. Not to mention it would still be a relatively small amount of people since you have to be 21 to have a carry permit.

    Is there really a shooting every other week?

    Carrying a gun is like wearing a seat belt. I'd rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.

    I'm 100% for it. When my ex-girlfriend was taking night classes, she was approached by creepy strange guys in the parking lot almost everytime. It got so bad, that I started going with her. If she had had a gun, then I wouldn't have had to waste my time doing nothing while she was in class. LOL.

    a given area should only be exempt from CCW if the means exist to prevent unauthorized introduction of lethal weapons for everyone, not just those who choose to follow the rules (which may not be possible)

    although i do think that there are far more people who dont want to shoot someone than there are who do... of the former, those who will bring benefit to a life or death situation with the use of a firearm is overestimated, in my opinion.

    Probably not technically but it's a serious issue and the frequency has escalated.

    My good friend told me today that someone from my old high school shot themselves in the gym at school in front of a bunch of students today. Got me to thinking more about it.

    Looser restrictions on gun laws will never result in any form of safety whatsoever. The more we allow people to freely purchase guns, the more dangerous society will become.
