Concealed Carry on Campus:
The Basics

Won't allowing guns on campus make it more dangerous?
Since 2003, licensed concealed carry has been decriminalized on an increasing number of campuses, including all public colleges in Utah and Colorado

In that period there has not been a single incident of gun violence or other related gun crime by a lawfully armed individual on those campuses

Likewise, none of the forty ‘right-to-carry’ states has seen a resulting increase in gun violence since legalizing concealed carry




Who carries concealed firearms?
While laws vary from state to state, concealed carry licensees generally have a few things in common:

They are over the age of 21 or are military veterans
They have completed training in the safe handling and operations of firearms
They have been fingerprinted and background checked to ensure they are not criminals

Can you say that for sure about other people you meet?
What can I do to help?
Find your local group:
Go to ConcealedCampus.org/States and look for your campus
If a chapter does not exist, contact your state or regional director for more help

Educate yourself:
Go to ConcealedCampus.org/Common-Arguments and read more about campus carry
Look up the citations noted in the responses and read those articles and studies as well
Why is campus carry the solution?
Campus carry is not the ONLY solution to violent crime on college campuses. It is an additional option to be used as a last resort when all other measures have failed

Concealed carry is NOT a substitute for situational awareness or practicing safe behaviors. In fact, those behaviors are arguably more important because of the emotional and legal consequences of having to use your firearm in self-defense

The same law-abiding, responsible adults who take responsibility for their own safety off campus simply want that same option when they cross the invisible property line onto campus
Why would we want guns
on campus?
Currently, on university and college campuses across the country, "gun-free" policies declare that firearms are prohibited

The problem is, the only people who obey signs and policies are those who do not intend to commit crimes in the first place

This, in effect, guarantees that any victim a criminal chooses on or around a college campus will be unable to fight back
