[QUOTE who="Article']"And this is also something where the Legislature is taking away higher education institution's abilities to make any policy on the issue."[/QUOTE]
Oh you mean the University's power to deny students their Constitution rights (that help them protect their lives). Ya right, got it.

Nope. Armed students would deter murder on campus or in classrooms much like the idea that Amerika has a "armed" military to deter invaders from coming here to have "gunfights".

i've said it a thousand times before and in other posts, if i could carry my gun to school it would deter the useless thugs from mugging people at the school sponsored living areas. Every week someone is robbed or held up in their car or mugged at gunpoint on the way home from a class. do you want your daughter walking by herself at night to her dorm with armed bandits strolling around thinking they can play god because they know that law abiding students don't carry? gee.. that's smart. That rule can apply anywhere and any time a gun violence crime has been committed. Areas with no guns are targeted like chickens preyed on like foxes. shame, really.
