8. I agree 100%
Why should we not allow people who have passed the CCW process, that allows them to carry concealed weapons in public, also carry in college campuses, which are, effectively, also public places?

I've heard the argument, "Oh, we can't let these drug-using, alcohol drinking, sex-addled, hormone-stricken people carry firearms!" To which I say, why the hell not? Once you are 18 you are an adult in every legal way that matters. You can vote. You can join the military. We know that CCW holders are among the most law-abiding people in the country, many times less likely to commit crimes than your average citizen.

I do not see any reason why such responsible people should not be able to carry their firearms in nearly any public place. They don't cause crime, and they are better shots than the police.
