Arizona and Hawaii Universities: Keep Guns Off Campus!

Apparently, “America’s colleges and universities are under attack from the gun lobby. Following mass shootings at Virginia Tech in 2007 (32 students and faculty killed and 15 wounded) and Northern Illinois University in 2008 (6 students killed and 16 wounded), the gun lobby’s response was to call for state legislation that would prohibit colleges and universities from adopting policies that regulate firearms on campus.” Yes, OK, so . . . what’s The Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus problem with that? That. It’s so obvious (to them) that guns should be kept off campus that their website doesn’t even bother to explain their logic. Nor does this press release (with added post-propaganda linkage) re: Hawaiian universities’ decision to join the anti-gun group. Someone should. Maybe . . . the media? Nah.

The Maricopa Community Colleges in Arizona, representing 10 schools, and the entire Hawaii University system, including its three main universities and seven community colleges, joined the Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus. Each school system signed resolutions in support of keeping loaded firearms off its campuses to protect students, faculty and staff from gun violence.
