Good Guys Packing Send Bad Guys Packing


The more that shootings bring home the dangers of 'gun-free-zones', the more there is an increasing and encouraging movement towards addressing this. Only however in those states that seem to see sense, although even in these we can see leftist colleges which individually will not accept carry on campus. The trend however is there and may it continue at an increasing rate.

In the wake of several mass shootings in gun-free zones around the country, the mood of State legislatures supporting the right of citizens to self-protection has gone into hyperdrive. More and more states are choosing to not prohibit law-abiding people from carrying sidearms.

Currently, there are only 19 states that directly ban the carrying of a concealed weapon on college campuses. Those states are: California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Wyoming.

In 23 states, the decision to allow or prohibit the carrying of concealed weapons on campus is made by each college or university individually. And, of course, given the liberal makeup of most college and university administrations, the vast majority of them prohibit students and faculty from carrying firearms on campus. Those states are: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia.

Because of recent state legislation and court rulings, eight states now have provisions allowing the carrying of concealed weapons on public postsecondary campuses. These states are Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin. During the 2015 legislative session, Texas' legislature passed a bill permitting concealed weapons on campus and making it the eighth state to permit guns on campus. The legislation will take effect in August 2016...... -->
