Making “Campus Carry” SafeOctober 14, 2016 |
Judging from the paltry turnout at last week’s community forum about implementation of campus-carry law at McLennan Community College, folks in the neighborhood aren’t exactly worried about the campus erupting into some Dodge City collegiate shootout. There were more signs on campus pointing to the site of Tuesday night’s forum than actual participants.
Amidst a political season full of sound and fury, we all should be thankful that paranoia and extremism concerning gun laws haven’t spilled over onto the campus. MCC officials have smartly conducted a number of open forums about the state law, which expands concealed carrying of handguns at public colleges and universities, including the MCC campus in August 2017.
