This story is a from a New York Times editorial piece about Campus Sexual Assaults.
It says that lawmakers in 10 states are busy adapting the issue of campus sexual assaults to the campaign to arm college students.
Nine states now allow concealed carry on college campuses. The theory, of course, is that if female students are armed with handguns that will help reduce sexual assaults. REALLY?
According to the editorial, lawmakers in 10 states are pushing bills that would permit the carrying of firearms on campus are hoping that the national spotlight on sexual assault will help them win passage of their measures.
The fact is that 90% of all sexual assaults on a college campus are perpetrated by someone that the victim knew. How likely is it that the victim would shoot someone they know?
“It reflects a misunderstanding of sexual assaults in general,” said John D. Foubert, an Oklahoma State University professor and national president of One in Four, which provides educational programs on sexual assault to college campuses.
Deadly force is inappropriate in almost 90% of cases where self-defense is called for.
