The Trench Reynolds Crime Report

Crime News That Matters

Ok, if you won’t listen to me about conceal and carry on college campuses (holy alteration Batman) will you listen to Mary Kay Mace? Who is she you ask? She is the mother of 19-year-old Ryanne Mace who was killed by Stephen Kazmierczak when he opened fire on Northern Illinois University in 2008.

In this piece from the Chicago Sun-Times Ms. Mace discusses why she thinks C&C on campus is not the answer.

“I get offended when people say that. It’s like blaming the victim. If only she had a gun . . . or if she had outrun the bullets.”

“To me, it’s crazy to have everybody carrying concealed,” Mace said.

“I understand that there’s evil out there in the world. Nobody understands better than I do,” she said. “I understand wanting a gun for personal protection. I just don’t think that it works.”

Ms. Mace is more concerned with preventing people from mental issues like Kazmierczak from obtaining guns before we worry about allowing concealed guns on campus.

And again I think having C&C on college campuses would lead to more gun violence just with legally concealed weapons.
