The Arbiter


Do you think concealed weapons should be allowed on campus?

“I don’t. I just think it causes unnecessary stress on campus with everyone.”

“I don’t think they should. I think if anything maybe professors should have them…I’m pro gun but I just don’t think they need to be on campus.”

“I don’t feel that they shouldn’t be allowed on campus but I don’t think it’s necessary. I think that it’s still within our second amendment to be able to carry a concealed weapon though.”

“I do because it is our constitutional right. And that’s where I stand on the matter.”
