Thanks for the replies everybody!
As far as being too broad- The professor said a topic like "Gun rights" is much too broad, but he felt something like "Students being allowed to carry on campus legally" should be fine. I could also hit on specific points that defy logical or common sense, such as policies that allow visitors, but not students to carry.
Keep the sources coming! :smile:
Your best bet would be to use the FBI and DOJ Crime Reports. They should be the most up to date and they are not biased nor can their be any accusations of a bias. Avoid using the NRA and other pro-gun organization cites with the caveat that they need a source and a description of the method they came to get that source from.

Here's a link to a story out of Ohio that could be relevant to your paper.
Thanks for all the replies. It is appreciated!
And the outline and basic construction of the paper begins!
As of now, I'm working on compiling a list of mass shootings that all happened in gun-free zones, in the process I have discovered several documented incidents where a CHL has stopped the threat and prevented further tragedy.
This should be very interesting to write, and see my other class-mates presentations.
Topics I know class-mates will be presenting on:
Same-sex couples adoption
Legalization of marijuana
(Feel free to share any articles, stories, essays, documents, videos,...anything that I might be able to utilize in my assignment!)
I am also looking for visual aids for my presentation. Could be a motivational poster. Could be a saying or slogan. I appreciate all the responses so far.
For motivational posters, look here: Small arms
While not strictly addressing a gun free zone incident, it would be in many states in the USA - see the thread here: http://www.defensivecarry.com/forum/...ting-back.html
OP- wish I'd have seen this post about 5 minutes ago... I just posted a very similar thread in the general gun discussion board. That's the downfall of browsing from a smartphone I suppose. At any rate, glad to see another student putting this issue out there. By your avatar, I'm guessing you attend FSU? That rule from the student handbook is very interesting and relevant.
