How are the Republicans in the Wisconsin State Legislature going to address campus gun violence?

More effing GUNS obviously. Meet "campus carry"

Two Republican state legislators have introduced a bill that would allow concealed carry gun owners to bring weapons into public university and college buildings in Wisconsin.

Why is the answer ALWAYS more guns?

1. I don't remember recent gun violence by students in Wisconsin colleges

Is this a plan to get some? Some insane PR campaign.

Might I suggest mandatory open carry in all state government buildings. Do unto yourself before you do unto children.

3. Hasn't been any mass shootings at any Wisconsin campus...

 

I guess people feel left out?

2. @wisgop pushes for guns on UW campuses, but not in legislative chambers.

Remember that no guns allowed in their offices or chambers. Nope!

6. That was my thought exactly.

 

I am a faculty member at a UW System campus and the shit students do on weekends while wasted- WITHOUT firearms- would make your head spin. Hell, the shit I did in college...


Guns plus alcohol- yeah great idea.

Guns plus emotional volatility- great idea.

Right. We need MORE GUNS on campus.
