Stony Brook Anti-Gun Students Want Campus Police Disarmed

posted on April 16, 2018

How far can will some anti-gun advocates go? Reductio ad absurdum, at least on the campus of Stony Brook University in New York, where students are calling to disarm campus police.

That university’s chapter of the Young Democratic Socialists of America, a group that “fights for democratic socialism through active campaigns to improve the lives of working people” went so far as to compose a four-page manifesto in which it demands that campus police lay down their arms.

“The possession of firearms creates unnecessary tension between officers and the university community, ” the document reads. “It has been empirically demonstrated that university police are ineffective in the use of firearms, regardless of the quality of training.”

Hmmm! Those assertions come from students on a campus that saw very little crime in 2016. Makes one wonder, though, how the campus police are supposed to stop  even the small number of crimes without the means to protect and promote public safety. Evidently, the young socialist group  remains so blinded by their anti-gun fervor that all logic and reason has gone by the wayside.  Whether they want to recognize it, having an armed security presence deters crime on the Stony Brook campus.

The parents of these young socialists must really wonder about the significant investment they’re making if this is how the students are spending their time, instead of focusing on developing the skills they’ll need in the future.
