UNIVERSITY ARMED ….ZERO CRIME!

download (14)

Six months after adopting conceal carry of firearms on campus, the University of Kansas found that the crime rate dropped and there have been zero weapons violations.

The Lawrence Journal-World reported that “crime decreased 13 percent, with 671 criminal offenses reported to KU police in 2017 compared to 770 incidents in 2016, according to a news release from the KU Office of Public Safety.”

The newspaper added there have been no weapons’ violations on campus in 2017, while there had been 14 reported since 2008 up to that point

KU prepared for the addition of campus carry being implemented last July by adding three additional security officers to patrol busy areas on campus, as well as portable metal detectors.

Kansas state law only allows those who are 21 or older to conceal carry. On its website, the university notes that 59 percent of students are younger than 21.

 Dudley Brown, president of the National Association of Gun Rights, believes there is a causal relationship between the drop in crime rate and permitting conceal carry on campus.

“There’s no doubt that allowing citizens — especially women — to carry the tools for self-defense makes criminals think twice,” he told The Western Journal.
