A community college instructor in Texas recently started off the academic year by wearing a bulletproof vest and army helmet to class. He did this to protest a law that, starting this August, authorizes individuals to carry concealed handguns at public community colleges in Texas. In 2016, the same law had already allowed guns at four-year institutions.
Texas and 10 other states now have laws permitting concealed carry of guns at colleges and universities. So far in 2017, campus carry bills have been introduced in at least 16 other states.
|As per usual, the editorial position is based upon a political desire, not on empirical evidence.
For any fundamental right to be attenuated, there must be compelling evidence that such attenuation is a) necessary, and b) is the narrowest, least-intrusive means available.
Not only is there no compelling evidence in this case, there is NO evidence, at all.
