College Trustee Wants To Limit Students’ Protection To “Alarms” And “A Manual”

posted on January 31, 2017

As Florida debated legislation to lift the ban on licensed, lawful citizens being armed on public college campuses, Daytona State College trustee Bob Davis insisted that college students and others visiting campus don’t deserve the same rights they enjoy virtually everywhere else in Florida, Breitbart reports.

“I don’t see the need for guns on our campus or any other campus,” Davis said. “We are well protected. We have alarms. We have the students trained. We have a manual.” But what they don’t have is armed campus security. As the Daytona Beach News-Journal reports, three of Florida’s most recent shootings—at Florida State University in 2014, at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub last year and at the Fort Lauderdale airport this year—all occurred in places where citizens, but not the criminals, were similarly disarmed.

Davis’ insistence that students are “well protected” by “alarms” and “manuals” is the same kind of arrogant ignorance that left Amanda Collins disarmed and defenseless against an armed rapist within sight of the police station on her college campus.
