Middle Tennessee State University Students To Vote On Allowing Guns On Campus

Via WKRN News:

Members of the Student Government Association of MTSU will vote on a proposal today to allow students to carry guns on campus although state law forbids guns on campus.

Mathew Hurtt wants to protect students’ constitutional rights and wants students to be able to protect themselves by allowing them to carry guns on campus.

“The constitution says it’s the right of the people to bear arms,” Hurtt said. “It shall not be infringed. It doesn’t say except on college campuses. There are no exceptions. People assume it’s going to be like the ‘wild wild west’ if we allow guns, that’s just not the case".

I can't wait to find out how this vote goes.

I am sure they will have to overcome many obstacles to make this to happen. I also feel it is a much needed step in protecting our students.
