Campus Carry Momentum

posted on April 1, 2015

Nearly half the states have considered allowing on-campus concealed carry in the last few years, and a minimum of 11 more will consider it in 2015. Seven states currently allow it, 23 leave it up to individual institutions and 20 actively ban it even for those with existing permits. Texas and Florida are shaping up as the big attention-getters with legislators still at work, while bills have already failed in South Dakota, West Virginia, Virginia and Wyoming.

Most of the objections seem overwrought, given almost 30 years of CCW track record across the nation. Also, few students meet the 21-year-old age requirement, and rigorous background checks would still apply. The angst also seems curiously anti-intellectual, given the increasing evidence that permit holders are among the most law-abiding demographics in the nation.
