Good article on Campus Concealed Carry
Too many state college and university Presidents are left-wing authoritarians--disparaging due process, First Amendment and Second Amendment rights. See the FIRE website for gobs of First Amendment examples. It probably wouldn't help, but perhaps, like many other public officials, they should taken an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution. Opposition to licensed concealed carry on state higher-ed campuses is the latest manifestation. Even though rational, balanced consideration of the policy issues provides no ammunition for opponents, too many are focusing on the policy issues, without considering the civil liberties issues. Decisions affecting civil liberties should be made by politically accountable officials, not bureaucrats! The latest idiotic gambit by the Prezzes is covered in the linked article.
