Crime News That Matters

gunpoint

I’m going to make no bones about this. Allowing guns on college campuses is a stupid idea.

The logic is supposed to be that having guns carried by students will prevent another Virginia Tech. There are some major flaws in logic with that argument. The first is that Cho Seung-Hui legally purchased the guns that he used to commit the worst school shooting in American history. The second is that if students would be allowed to carry guns that they would be able to prevent a Virginia Tech style shooting and prevent innocent deaths. I’m a believer in the opposite that if students were allowed to carry guns on campus and a shooting broke out the return fire would probably injure or kill more students than it would potentially save. Not to mention with armed, emotional and mostly drunk college students that are just creating more Chos.

And armed society is not a polite society. Our society is armed but you’d have to be blind and dumb to think that we’re polite.
