If guns don't belong on campus, then why are there so many guns on campus?
Georgia State closing library to public; 2 more robberies... | www.ajc.com
Students robbed on Savannah State University campus - WTVM.com-Columbus, GA News Weather & Sports
Georgia Tech students tied up and robbed in apartment near campus | www.ajc.com
Suspect arrested in armed robbery inside Georgia Tech building | www.ajc.com
etc.

So police can respond quicker than drawing a gun? Only if you have a cop in your back pocket.

and EACH student can also be issued an emergency button(which contacts the closed police in that area).This is not only a safer and smarter approach but also cheaper.
To do what? Let the police know where their corpse will be?

But the MAJORITY of students dont have any fire arm training and do you REALLY trust 20 something old kids in COLLEGE with a weapon?Imagine 20-30 college guys all with a weapon and their drunk at a party and they get in a arguement,rather then using their fists they got guns now.Guns have NO place in ANY school campus the only people who should have weapons on campus are the campus police and security officers(if we hire some).

We trust them with a weapon outside campus, what's the difference?

So are you in school or in iraq?Did you go to school to have a gun?

Dude your in a campus not a war zone,guns dont have NO place on campus.
And answer this,does it make it safer with a bunch of UNTRAINED college kids with weapons(a fire arm is very dangerous) or is it safer with more more campus officers on campus were the bad guys dont want to see?

20 year old is not a kid. A 20 year old is 2 years older than a legal adult. It sounds to me like you are transferring your fears and inability to handle fire arms onto others.

Dude you're totally right. All we need to do is just have a little sit-down fireside chat with all our local criminals. And explain to them that we just don't want them to carry guns and that way we won't have to mash our little help me buttons and call the police. And then we would never have to carry guns ourselves because no one will have guns right?
