FL: We don't need guns on college campuses

Although we support a person's right to own a gun, we can't justify the need for those weapons to be carried by students, faculty or others on college and university campuses in the state.

The criminal justice committee in the Florida House of Representatives will begin considering such a bill when it meets Tuesday. The bill, filed by Rep. Greg Stuebe, R-Sarasota, would allow for people with concealed weapons licenses to carry guns on campuses. A similar bill also has been filed in the Senate by Greg Evers, R-Baker. The bills have failed in the past, and we see no reason that it should be any different this time.

Considering the average level of maturity, (as demonstrated by behaviors and documented skill sets of most college students) I'd almost agree with this proposal. College has become an "extended adolescence" for far too many children of means. And we all know today's adolescent's are immature, irresponsible and often lawless. And their parent's support them !

But there's a distinct segment of college students that are responsible, thinking adults. Are we to deprive these individuals of their constitutionally-guaranteed "rights" because of the actions of the irresponsible ? How does a college justify this? Unless, of course, they're willing to "adopt", hence become responsible for the actions of these social miscreants.

Why can it not be considered as rational? It is preemptive and a strategy. It provides a faster response to a violent occurrence. Law-abiding people are not the ones needed to guard against, surely this is not the logic, or is it?

A woman who demands further gun control legislation is like a chicken who roots for Colonel Sanders. —Larry Elder
