I got two examples in my e-mail this week alone of why university campuses need to permit concealed carry.
1. A girl who was out jogging on campus got grabbed, dragged into a nearby empty lot, and nearly raped.
2. Our campus is presenting on the A.L.I.C.E. program--Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate--for use in a possible campus shooting. The official who sent out the e-mail mentioned the "swarming" method of taking down an armed attacker, where students and professors throw stuff at the armed attacker, then group tackle him or her.
If my college's campus was not a weapons-free zone, the campus community would be safer. Criminals tend to avoid areas where potential victims might well be armed.
