University Presidents Don’t Want Students With Guns On Campus, Or Anywhere Else

Seventy-nine percent of them did not own a firearm and 57 percent grew up in a home without a gun

University presidents overwhelmingly oppose letting students carry concealed guns on their campuses — and don’t really want people carrying them anywhere else, either.

A study commissioned by Ball State University polled 401 university presidents in the U.S. and found that 95 percent of them do not want students with concealed handguns to be allowed at their universities. Furthermore, most weren’t comfortable with students having guns anywhere else either, as 65 percent of them opposed the carrying of concealed handguns off-campus.

The numbers are hardly surprising, as the university presidents seem to have little personal taste for guns. Seventy-nine percent of them did not own a firearm and 57 percent grew up in a home without a gun, numbers significantly higher than the rates for the U.S. population at large.
