Maybe stories like this are why more and more people are getting their carry permits?
Here is a medical student, on campus, robbed by a shotgun wielding criminal.
Yup, the campus has a NO GUNS policy. The police are looking for the criminal, fortunately the student was not injured. Still, in this, a very gun friendly state, the criminals know where to do their victim shopping, they go to campus. There have been similar reports of robberies at other campuses in Indianapolis, students at Butler University leaving parties and walking across campus getting robbed, etc.
**I’m not saying that everyone should have a gun, nor am I suggesting that all students should carry, but I see no reason why the older, graduate students, parents and others should be barred from bringing legal guns onto campus if they have a state issued “carry license” that permits them to carry a gun off campus. **
I just don’t understand why, especially in a city campus setting, it is legal to have a gun with a carry license on one side of the street but not on the other side of the same street, or just one block away or two. Many of these city campuses are dotted with school and non-school property so the whole area is often considered off-limits for legal carry. [INDENT] IUPUI student robbed at gun point
