NC gun-rights group runs radio ads critical of UNC

READ MORE:

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- A gun-rights advocacy group is running radio commercials criticizing University of North Carolina system leaders for opposing a bill that would allow students and staff to bring a concealed pistol on campus.

Grass Roots North Carolina said ads starting Tuesday in three markets urge listeners to call Senate leader Phil Berger to move ahead legislation that passed the House this month. A provision would allow legally concealed weapons to be stored in locked cars on public college campuses.

UNC system President Tom Ross and campus police say the weapons would raise the risk of violence on campus. The ad points to recent sexual assaults on UNC system schools and uses the voice of what sounds like a female student lamenting being unable to bring her legal weapon on campus.

Yeah right

The ONLY place guns would be allowed is in your car.
Most rapes happen in dorm rooms and on the grounds - where this new law says you CAN'T carry.
Allow constant carry on campus or don't allow it at all.
But this advertisement is "pandering".
