i want your opinion
i think it should be allowed because laws only affect the law-abiding. that means school shooters are gonna bring guns anyway.
and if guns were allowed, school shooters could have been shot dead by the saner ones before he/she even kill more people.
to me, saying that college kids will go on a shooting spree if guns were allowed is like saying that people will lose morale and start killing eachother if god wasn't taught in public schools. the last time i checked, god-believers and atheists were equally as immoral.
and also... maybe ladies and gays or anyone who are often targeted for violence/murder/rape in college can *have the opportunity* to defend themselves. i didn't say guns will magically defend someone, but having the opportunity to at least scare off an attacker (even a group of attackers) is still good, unless the attacker points the gun first.
i mean ok the best weapon to prevent targeted crime is social grouping, awareness, teamwork, and support but obviously social change takes a long time. in an ideal world, people can just sit down have a discussion and be like "we conclude that its inappropriate to attack ladies and gay people are okay!" and prevent many attacks from then on, but waiting for social change to solve a problem is like trying develop a genetic mod that prevents cancer while not allowing the current patients from using chemotherapy. and of course, letting the current patients die because "genetic mods are going to solve more problems.... in a few decades"
argue with me. btw this isn't about "should there be gun control", it's about "should guns be banned on campuses"
