Concealed Firearms on Campus?

Comments Off on Concealed Firearms on Campus? Featured Articles, Security Videos

There has always been a hot debate about students “packing heat” on campus. The big uproar initially happened on the University of Texas campus when students were found to be carrying a concealed firearm with them. Now all of this discussion has turned to the campus of the University of South Carolina. A student’s dorm room was searched and five firearms turned up. Some students say it’s for the security of the campus, while school officials argue that it poses possible harm to other students. The question has always been though, does the possible security risk make up for itself in a bigger campus wide security scheme with the students being able to take matters into their own hands? The question for now is being left to school officials, but with as much speculation as this debate has seen, colleges/universities are on the hotseat.
