"how about those students who don't live on campus that have to walk home through bad sections of town."
They wouldn't be able to carry !!!! Why? Because the proposed legislation is STUPID. It ONLY allows for guns on campus SECURED in their vehicle !!! They CANNOT carry on their person. So that person walking home though the bad section of town is unprotected if he's walking.
"Or how about all the adults who take late night classes that don't get out until its dark out'
Same thing. No protection afforded UNTIL they get into their vehicle!
"You know walking through a parking deck at night can be one of the most dangerous places to be."
I think they now have a parking deck at UNCW but again they can't carry walking away from, or to, their car.
" Violent crime stats in almost all area's have been on a steady steep decline over that same time period."
Very true - and its also true that spending on Law Enofrcement over that same period of time tripled or quadrupled in most states. So what exactly caused the decrease in crime Jim? Increased private ownership of guns? Or increased law enforcement presence?
Stop GLORIFYING "the gun" especially as it pertains to THIS proposed law.
In THIS case allowing for conceal carry on campus will make the problem WORSE, and will afford NO increase in safety to those law abiding CWP holders walking to their car.
This law is tragically flawed and law abiding gun owners and CWP holders should be telling their Reps to NOT support it because it affords no protection to them - but by supporting this it proves that its all about the gun and the gun only - not increased personal safety.
Let them carry or keep things the way they are.
