Arming Coeds Not The Answer To Campus Assaults

This NY Times Article on Campus Assaults is questioning the recent proposal that arming female students will put an end to campus sexual assaults. Right now only nine states allow students to carry guns on campus. But there is a push to change that.

“Some experts in sexual assault say that college women are typically assaulted by someone they knew, sometimes a friend, so even if they had access to their gun, they would rarely be tempted to use it.”

We would agree with that assessment. Statistics show that nine out of every 10 assailants in a campus sexual assault situation is known to the victim. The deadly force of a handgun is rarely justified in any situation, let alone one where two friends are together.

“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.
