Guns Might be Allowed in Public University Parking Lots in Kentucky?
State Rep. Bob Damron, D-Nicholasville, signed up 44 co-sponsors Tuesday for his bill that would allow people who park on public university property to keep a legally registered gun in their vehicle.
Currently, this can be prohibited by weapons policies set by the state universities. . . .
Disappointingly there is significant opposition from even this small proposal:
Morehead State University President Wayne Andrews said the bill "gives me great concern. I think we need to tread very lightly with the issue of weapons on campus."
Andrews said "if people have weapons on campus, they might use them," endangering the campus community. . . .
It would be nice if they could point to some systematic evidence to justify their concerns, though I suppose the reason they don't is because there isn't any.
