Thanks for the comments! The Lantern did leave out my Kleck/Gertz citation, but otherwise it's about what I sent in. Andrew's right about the state law on campus carry. It's been enshrined in the ORC since we got the "privelage" to carry. Keep in mind that many OH colleges spent lobbying time and money ensuring that their Ivory Towers were closed off to CHL licensees, so we ain't talking about innocent educators here.
I'm willing to work on getting another student resolution happening with the next USG administration. If we get enough support and attention we might make a small difference. Then it's on to the Statehouse for the real deal. We'll see what Strickland is made of then. He can't be any worse than those last two #$%^&* gubberners we've suffered under.
So far I've received absolutely no negative feedback on this piece. Wonder if Saul Cornell will crawl out from under his well hidden "Second Amendment Research Center" rock and engage in a little debating? Nah, I've tried that before. He's pretty shy on his own campus for a so-called "professor."
Remember that "no CCW on campus" is only one problem we have here at OSU. We still need a comprehensive crime prevention program, as well as to get up to force levels regarding police, police dispatchers and counselors. (I think we are 15 or 19 police officers understaffed.) No men's self-defense class, broken or unlocked doors out the ying-yang, and a few other things are wrong as well.
OSU needs a lot of work as the crime rate will doubtless keep rising in the coming years. Watch for our tax money to be spent instead on new buildings, new decorations and raises for all the bigwigs.
