Ohio State Community: We Want Concealed Carry

Readers of The Lantern spoke out Monday in a poll that asked “Do you think concealed carry should be allowed on campus?”

Final results were:

 

Yes. 

62% 

 

No. 

38% 

     

 
 

This follows a referendum about a year ago where 25% of voters asked Student Government to lobby the statehouse to lift the statewide ban on campus CCW. Students are aware of the day-to-day dangers of living in the OSU campus area. With one of the highest violent crime rates in the city, violent armed robberies happen several times a week. Students realize that the police cannot be everywhere at once, and that they typically arrive on the scene after the attack is over – just in time to fill out the paperwork. Self defense is a human right and nothing about being a student changes that.
