It's time to do away with the crime of concealed carry in Kentucky

"Western's policy is very clear. You cannot carry a weapon on campus or in any of our buildings," said Gene Tice, WKU's Vice-President of Student Affairs.

Tice said officials suggested a number of changes following the Virginia Tech shootings to improve campus safety. Those suggestions did not include guns, he said.

"We have never discussed nor have we ever considered anyone carrying weapons on campus. Only our police officers are authorized to carry weapons and we're very firm about that," Tice said.

Students carrying guns might actually create a more dangerous environment, he said.

"My concern would be the person would not have that kind of training in a highly charged emotional situation the way our police would," Tice said.

Training. OK. So when someone jumps out from behind a bush or vehicle and tries to attack a student who, except for your regulations, could be carrying a firearm, the student should say, "Excuse me, would you mind if we did this off-campus? I can't carry my otherwise legal firearm on campus and I'm at something of a disadvantage."

The answer is obvious. The law needs to be changed. It's time to do away with the crime of concealed carry in Kentucky and loosen the unconstitutional restrictions on our most responsible citizens. (Yeah, I know what the OAG says, but consider the source.)
