WASHINGTON – With the goal of preventing the next Virginia Tech massacre, a delegate in Virginia is proposing full-time college professors be allowed to carry guns on campus.
Bob Marshall, R-Manassas, has proposed the bill which would allow professors who already have concealed weapon permits to carry the weapons. That way, a professor would be able to protect his or her class from an intruder.
The idea is garnering mixed reactions from students.
“I don’t think I would want to carry a gun on campus,” says one George Mason University student. “They could just go to that gun instead of resolving the issue another way.”
Another student agreed, saying, “To be honest, I think no one should be having guns on campus.
