To the editor:
I’m writing in response to Theresa Krause’s letter (“Guns on campus,” Feb. 26 Review-Journal). Ms. Krause hopes the Nevada Legislature rejects Assemblywoman Michele Fiore’s campus carry bill. Progressive liberal politicians designated gun-free zones as a way to prevent gun violence on high school and college campuses. This policy has failed miserably over the years. By disarming everyone on campus, the progressives have made them sitting ducks.
Ms. Krause writes that “with the failure of this bill, there might be hope that some deranged person will not be lurking around a college campus with a gun in hand.” Hope won’t stop a deranged person from shooting up a school campus.
Allowing law-abiding citizens with concealed carry permits to carry on campus will make these deranged people think twice about committing another shooting atrocity, because they know they could face resistance. It’s common sense. I hope the bill passes.
