Letter: Guns on campus

July 14, 2014 

Hiring armed guards on campus because of concealed carry licensees is a ridiculous, unnecessary overreach by college administrators.

Concealed carry licensees are an elite, serious, law-abiding group who have survived a criminal background check, and been taught the laws and safe use of firearms, probably more than the armed guards. I challenge anyone to find a gun crime by a concealed carry licensee.
