After UCLA shooting, should colleges fear guns on campuses?

"If this premeditated shooting at UCLA calls any policies or laws into question, it is the policies and laws denying law-abiding professors the means to defend themselves where they're most vulnerable," Students for Concealed Carry said in a statement it shared with The Christian Science Monitor. Licensed adults should have "the same measure of personal protection on campus that they're allowed virtually everywhere else," it said.
|The UCLA example cited is the typical misrepresentation we have come to expect.
The shooter in that case, as in all cases, couldn't and wouldn't have been stopped by a campus ban on firearms.
The argument that removing such bans will increase the likelihood of campus shootings is simply illogical, since they have no effect whatsoever beyond disarming potential victims. They cannot and do not disarm the people who do the shootings.
The media need to get off the irrational anti-gun dime and join the ranks of sane, honest reporters and editorialists (of whom there are shamefully too few).
