Guns on College Campuses

Main Article Content

Jaelyn Millon


Given the context of the gun violence crisis in the United States, this essay seeks to examine whether colleges ought to allow guns on campus or if they should ban them across the country’s college institutions. Though some individuals argue that it is a violation of a student’s constitutional right to not allow a gun on the college campus they attend, many others have provided data regarding the increased risk of violence if guns are allowed on campus. Although individuals should be able to maintain their constitutional rights while they are students, college campuses must also weigh the risks versus benefits of allowing guns on campus and ultimately select the option that most proactively prevents violence on college campuses.
