    Sure. While we're at it though, why not open carry? And why not expand beyond handguns? College students should be allowed to open carry a SBR M4. :evil:

    How appropriate, there was an armed mugging on the campus where my wife is a professor today.

    I was just discussing this with a classmate of mine today. Also, I think we should all be grateful that the only person physically injured in the UT shooting was the shooter.

    I am all for gun carry in school. I walk a mile to school everyday, and when I get there, I spend at least 8 hours there. I walk back home around 8pm when it's dark, carrying laptop, books, electronic devices... a student is a walking target for robbery due to the necessary items we carry on us.

    70% yes
    30% no

    KTRE will most likely air the results (unlike some stations when things don't go their way).

    This station is in "my neck of the woods".

    So answer me this batmen

    While watching the news regarding the UT Austin shooting yesterday, I imagined what it would be like when the UT Police, Austin Police and SWAT show up on campus looking for a mad gunman on campus and there are 50 to hundreds of students with guns on them.
    What would be a good protocol for students to then follow knowing hundreds of LEO are there looking for a kid, who looks like any other kid, with a gun. Seems to me a bad situation for the LEOs.
    And how would you as a LEO, on a campus with many thousands of potentially armed students, looking for one person with a gun (you probably don't know what gun yet, or whether there is more than one madmen), handle yourself?
    Seems like an impossible situation. Suppose some student holed up in a classroom sees some SWAT guy with a rifle and mistakenly, filled with great fear, thinks that its the madman, then opens fire on the LEO.
    I'm not saying I'm against CC on campus; just that it presents numerous potential problems.

    Now a days seems like the college kids need more protection than an 80 year old granny strolling through the projects at 1 a.m. in the morning counting her cash out in the open.

    NO GUNS ALLOWED,:uhoh:

    so all the bad crazy/people will just go some were there is no sign and commit there crime there instead,

    we all know the power of

    THE SIGN :banghead::banghead:



    good chance the bad guy would be dead long before the first leo's get there

    I am in school now I would like to have the option to cc but not open tomany people are scared of guns. I have seen a gun I school I had to take a second look becouse all I saw was the out line on the guys pants he was a Leo but it shocked me at first. It the student has the right training and mind set I think it should be allowed. Now I know people i won't even talk guns around eather there scared because they have never been around them, or they don't have the mindset to see a gun as a tool for defense and not an extention of there man hood. So i would settle for being able to leave it in my truck.

    72%/28%

    As a recently graduated college student, I voted yes. I had multiple people confide in me that they would have felt safer if something were to happen, were I to have my guns on campus.

    Jimineer makes some good points.
    Another thing to consider is that while college students are technically adults , its an awkward age where its hard to tell the adults from the kids.
    OC on campus for the typical student should be a No No.
    It could never work out in reality but , there should be a way to determine who could respond appropriately and who might be likely to spazz out in an emergency.
    Definitely there are students that are mature enough to be CCing on campus.

    Couple guys here seem to favor "reasonable restrictions". I guess you fellas know best how to keep things safe for the sheep. :rolleyes:
