I previously recorded the hurdles facing campus administrators in dealing with campus rape and the banning of hard liquor on certain campuses. You can read the story here under 2014-2015 issues.
Now comes a new twist in dealing with the problem of campus rape.
The New York Times has recently reported that "Colorado, Wisconsin and seven other states allow people with legal carry permits to take concealed firearms to campus, some with restrictions..."
Presently 41 states have a ban on carrying concealed weapons on campus by law or by University policy.
However, many states including Florida, Nevada, Indiana, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and Wyoming. have introduced legislation that would allow guns on campus.
Of course, the key issue is whether allowing students to carry concealed weapons on campus will prevent rape.
