    UNC annual crime report shows rise in interpersonal violence

    CHAPEL HILL, NC (WTVD) --
    University police at UNC Chapel Hill recently released annual crime statistics for 2015 and incidents of stalking, dating violence and domestic violence have risen since 2013.

    According to the report those incidents are up from 25 incidents in 2013 to 68 incidents in 2015, with reports of domestic violence rising from 5 to 15, dating violence rising from 6 to 18 and stalking 14 to 35.

    When I went back to college a few years back we all had to attend a mandatory safety briefing by the chief of security, he commented how much safer the campus was after they installed the “Blue Boxes”. He said all you had to do was push the button and security would be dispatched, he was not pleased with my comment “That’s cute, now you know just where to go to recover the body”.

    A step in the right direction for any school or public building should be windows that allow egress to the outside. Instead many in use would tend to trap victims.

    At age 21 these young Adults are given their full legal 2nd amendment rights.

    Going along with your thoughts then children on up should not be allowed to hunt or handle a firearm.There is a large percentage of older middle aged adults currently going to college.

    Should those same possibly dangerous, possibly revenge seeking, young adults be allowed to carry outside of Gun free zones?

    At what age do you think young adults should be allowed their 2nd amendment rights?

    I disagree with that statement as it is the same worn out claim anti-gunners howl any time there is a pro-gun proposal approved, the old lame; blood will flow in the streets, people will have shoot outs over parking spaces ad nauseam.

    We have those blue boxes on my campus, except we have no security. It dispatches the local PD, which is on the other side of town. When I was taking night classes, I noticed no significant increase in police patrols around campus. Sure made me feel safe.

    I have also observed that many of those who don't want youngin's carrying guns on campus haven't been youngin's for quite some time.

    If it is private property it should be up to the owner. If it is public then carrying should be allowed.

    There is a flip side to that coin. There are a great deal of older adults who have decided to commit violence because they lost their way. They could go through hard times and take it out on someone else. Lost their job, lose a spouse or kid, maybe lose their home. All kinds of situations that could push them over the edge and thus they should not carry a firearm.

    Or we could just say at 21 you're an adult and legally allowed to carry a firearm.

    I did some volunteer work at a local state university a few years back. They had a cadre of fat sweater vest women working security for the stadium. They were asking people to return folding knives to their cars, peeking in bags, etc. I asked them what they would do if someone pulled a gun from a diaper bag and started shooting. They said there were cops somewhere on campus. I never saw one the whole time I was there. I was wearing two guns at the time, as I usually do, and I told them that CCW's were legal since it was a public school. They didn't think so, and didn't have a shred of self defense equipment, save their sheer size one could hide behind. I think a person with a good CCW is probably the only thing a campus could count on for stopping a lunatic. I would hope if there was a problem at my kids school someone there is armed.

    I'm a little late to the show on this one, but here is my response.

    The liberal whiners always talk about the drunken college kids. What about faculty & staff? My wife is a brilliant woman. PhD from Texas A&M, over 50 publications, fully tenured college professor, etc. She is also has her CHL and is a great shot. Why should she be denied her right to defend herself?

    have you ever seen the video of all the drunken college kids assembling on the roof of a garage, and then the roof collapses?

    it doesn't take a liberal whiner to spot a group of idiots

    otherwise, 21 or older, no criminal record dictating otherwise - good to go!

    Agreed but TX does allow guns on campus.
    A 9mm might expand but a .45acp never shrinks.

    Of course guns should be allowed to be carried on campus by adults in America. Any place that harbors and encourages the lunatic fringe, particularly at liberal propaganda centers, is extremely dangerous and decent people should always have the unfettered right to defend themselves. Not very long after the riots and violence at UCSB, I wanted to carry my revolver on campus and in Isla Vista. That patchouli crowd is dangerous in high concentrations.

    Agreed. I was directing it more to the generalization by the anti gunners that group everyone on campus is a 18 year old drunken frat boy.
