Georgetown Students Call for Arming Campus Police


At least one student at Georgetown University has the right perspective regarding how guns deter crime, and she is asking the college administration to take steps to ensure student safety by expanding Second Amendment freedoms.

 “Laws restricting gun ownership will not prevent gun violence or end school shootings. For our safety, Georgetown University should arm campus police and the D.C. Council should allow students to carry firearms on campuses,” Amelia Irvine wrote in an open letter to The Hoya, the student newspaper. 

That plea comes in the aftermath of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting, which has prompted relentless calls for gun control across the nation, even at a relatively safe university in New York, where students are saying campus police should be disarmed, which would leave students vulnerable to more crime. 

Irvine has a more sensible understanding of things, pointing out that a recent walkout by pro-gun control students at her campus does nothing to make the campus safer, but “allowing students and Georgetown University Police Department officers to exercise their constitutional right to bear arms will.”
