Shooting blanks

October 20, 2008

Never happen:

A small group of students at Ball State University says students should have the right to carry concealed weapons on campus to protect themselves in case of an attack.

Junior criminal justice major Blake Graham heads the campus organization called Ball State Students for Concealed Carry on Campus. The group drew about 10 people, most of whom have gun permits, to a meeting this month. “We feel that it’s our right that we need to be able to protect ourselves,” Graham said.

There are good arguments on both sides of this question, but they’ll never be heard. Campuses are as entrenched in the anti-gun culture as the NRA is in the pro-gun culture.
