Questions have arisen lately about why only criminals and former students who’ve gone off their meds should be allowed to carry guns on our University campuses. New Oklahoma State University president, V. Burns Hargis, does NOT think the law-abiding students should be able to defend themselves against an attack.
The Elizabeth Nichols, of the Daily O’Collegian, is reporting,
President Burns Hargis said he supports the Faculty Council’s vote Tuesday to send a resolution to the Oklahoma Legislature promoting “a culture of safety” and denouncing House Bill 2513, which would allow students to carry concealed weapons on campus.
Although the bill would allow students to carry weapons, it does not allow faculty to carry them. Burns Hargis said, “That’ll give you real incentive not to fail anybody.”
The Tulsa World is reporting that some educators would like to amend the bill to include the right of faculty and staff to carry weapons.
