Georgia Professors Urge Court To Overturn Campus Carry

Campus carry is currently legal in 11 states, and in the 15 years since the first law was passed, there have been exactly zero incidents. But the facts aren’t standing in the way of six anti-gun Georgia university professors, who are seeking an injunction to overturn the state’s new campus carry law. 

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the professors filed a complaint Monday in the Fulton County Superior Court against Gov. Nathan Deal, who signed campus carry into law in May, and Attorney General Chris Carr. The instructors claim the state’s campus carry law, which went into effect July 1, could lead to an uptick in firearm accidents and suicides, would pose a danger to students and faculty, and could have a chilling effect on classroom debate—in other words, the same tired warnings that have proven untrue time and again.
