I believe 21-year-old students in this country are as responsible as older adults. Concealed carry laws have been enacted for a number of years in almost all the states in our country. The statistics show no increase in firearm-related crime by persons issued concealed carry permits. There is no reason to believe students — or professors, for that matter — who go through the required training and background checks to obtain a concealed carry permit will pose any greater threat on campus than they would anywhere else.
LETTER: No reason to deny 21-year-olds from concealed carry
