    That map is very effective for CCW on campus.

    I believe liberal professors are worried about students having a firearm in their classes.

    I so wish campus carry was legal here in MO. A friend of mine had her purse stolen the other night, luckily she chased the guy down, tackled him andd then punched him in the face. Possibly not the smartest decision, but hind sights 20/20. I hate going to class unprotected, and also being on campus late at night walking to parking garages.

    Neighborhoods surrounding the University of Akron are awful. I participated in the Students for Concealed Carry empty holster protest last year and I plan on doing it again this year.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    I agree; I wish carry on campus was allowed. Luckily my husband and I moved to a safe area of the city. I checked the (reported) crime stats and the crime in the three-block radius around the college in the past two years had more than ten times the amount of reported robberies/attempted robberies/muggings, etc than our neighborhood in the past 7 years.

    Not like that helps if some bone-head decides to try the "safe" part of town.
    Nor does it help should someone commit a crime on campus while disarmed.

    It stinks having to watch my hubby disarm in the parking lot before class.

    Wow! I'd say there is a real pattern here...crime is EVERYWHERE!
    Why not, the BG's know that it is a gun-free zone.

    Look at the time though... the majority are at late night when the campus isn't open. There are only a few circumstances of mid day or evening incident.

    I'm all for it though. Convincing the general populace it's a good idea, especially considering the incidents in the past few years on campuses, it going to be an issue. People will see at as potentially arming more villains rather than arming potential good guys.

    We should all support Students For Concealed Carry.. I am a junior at the University of Tennessee and I have a Tn handgun carry permit. I also have a night class that doesn't end till 8pm. I get pretty uneasy walking to my car after class. My Gerber stays in my hand but I would much rather it be my Beretta....How many more Virginia Tech's are we going to witness before they make campus carry legal?

    I'm kinda lucky. There is no law here that bans it, I can face University disipline if caught. But, hey concealed is concealed right!! LOL!! Sadly the local Students for Concealed Carry chapter here is inactive. All faculty are afraid to sponser....

    Am I missing something, or mis-reading the map? The map of the GT campus shows a big gaping hole in terms of crimes, with the campus virtually crime-free. Wouldn't that strongly suggest the concept that a gun-free zone can result in fewer crimes?

    The presence of CHL should tend to help reduce the incidence of crime (given the increased risk to criminals); reduce the risk of bad results to potential victims (given that they're better armed). The map showing an utter lack of violent crimes on the GT campus might suggest it's chock-full of concealed carriers ... and that the criminals knows this. Either that, or it's known that all GT students are poor and have nothing of value to get from a crime. Do the criminals around GT know something we don't?

    I never had anything like that happen to me or anyone I knew while I was at the 'Zou but thankfully she made it out ok. I'm Mizzou alum, '05.

    Campus carry is legal in MO, though the school might expell or fire you if they catch you.
