View Full Version : Campus concealed carry
12-04-2012, 6:07 PM
I'm a graduate student in the Central Valley preparing to write a paper on the feasibility of permitting college students to concealed carry on campus. I'll be approaching the paper from a public safety/fiscal impact/2nd Amendment perspective, just wondering if anyone has any good print or on-line resources to share?
Thanks in advance :D

Google John Lott and his research on CCW.

I think your general argument should be 'we have been trying 'disarmed victim zones' and we already know how that has turned out; time to try something different.'

Yeah, most definitely. I plan to draw all that in, I just need some cite-able sources to satisfy the teacher's need to show I consulted someone else's work on the topic, LOL

What I was really looking for, and could not readily find, was the arguments used in Utah and in the following state supreme court lawsuit that compelled the U Utah system to follow state law. Here's their policy, though: http://dps.utah.edu/laws-policies/weapons.php
