Ohio State President Still Opposes Campus Carry

posted on December 2, 2016

Even after Monday’s terrorist attack on Ohio State University, OSU President Michael Drake still opposes campus carry legislation that would allow licensed, lawful adults to protect themselves on Ohio college campuses, Columbus Business First reported. That attack—in which a man struck students with his car and with a butcher knife, sending 11 innocent people to the hospital—was stopped only by an armed campus police officer, who shot the attacker. 

In a conversation broadcast Wednesday morning by WOSU, host Ann Fisher discussed legislation currently being debated in the Ohio legislature that would end the state’s prohibition on Right-to-Carry permit holders carrying on college campuses, and allow universities to choose for themselves whether to allow firearms on their property. “None of my colleagues or myself [sic] think that’s a good idea,” Drake said. 

We suspect there are at least 11 people on the OSU campus who would disagree with Drake.
