Simple answer, yes!
as a college student i have to agree...simple answer??? YES
As a college employee, I say YES.
The entire crimnal-protection-zone philosophy has always baffled me. It's not lilke there's some chemical in the air at a post office, a college campus or the statehouse that suddenly makes me more likely to go on a murderous rampage. Likewise, there's nothing in the air at those places that would make an actual murderous psycho mysteriously decide to obey the law.
I think so yes. There is a large university in my jurisdiction, and there is not state law against carrying on campus. If you are an employee or student and get caught carrying you will likely be fired or expelled, but no criminal charges can be filed.
Doubtful the university will change its policy for liability reasons.
Hmmm ... is that a book bag or an EDC bag? Better be sure before you search Ms. campus official.
Coming from someone who graduated last May I say yes.
I like how the against argument uses zero facts pertaining.l to the articls and just brings fear mongering to the table. Claiming colleges as children and youth centers.....

As a current college student, absolutely! Though it wouldn't affect me much since I don't go to a public university.
Most universities and colleges here in Colorado allow CCW holders to carry on campus. My wife is the new director of the library at one, she was having trouble with a couple known problem patrons and asked the VP over campus security for a meeting, and he came to her office.
During their meeting guns on campus came up and the VP stated that carry was permitted on campus and there were 26 faculty and staff with CCWs, she looked him in the eye and said "27". She said it didn't seem to bother him in the least.
To date I don't know of any reported problems on campus.
Yes, I see no difference in carrying whether on a college campus or on the street downtown.
Yes. Legal CCW permit holders should be allowed to carry on campus.
I am, however, swayed by the authors claims that the students are very immature. In this vein, I think students should not be allowed to drive until they graduate.
Legally owned and carried weapons should be allowed any where the legal possesing individual wishes to carry them! It's called freedom!
The comment section of that thing is pretty painful... Must be some POS liberal rag..
I was struck by the fact that the author of the opinion opposing campus carry promised to examine the facts, then presented nothing except concurring opinions.
As I understand it, the bill would only allow you to carry on the outdoor campus. You still could not carry into the buildings, which defeats the entire purpose of the bill in the first place.
I still wonder about the rational that maintains a law-abiding citizen with a legal concealed weapon somehow mysteriously transforms into a maniacal sociopathic homicidal threat to public safety by merely stepping onto the grounds of a college. If something about college property has this effect on people, do we need really to be educating our kids there?
