Guns On Campus: An Open Letter to University of North Carolina President Tom Ross

by David Codrea, AmmoLand:

Dear Mr. Ross:

WRAL-TV yesterday quoted you as saying that provisions in House Bill 937 (“Amend Various Firearms Laws”), and particularly its provision allowing concealed handgun permit-holders to keep firearms in locked vehicles on college campuses would “increase the risk to public safety and hamper our ability to protect not only our students, staff and faculty, but also campus visitors.”

Perhaps your view from the Ivory Tower is obstructed, Mr. Ross, so allow me to describe the landscape: The University of North Carolina is doing a woefully inadequate job of protecting its students, staff, faculty and visitors. In fact, just a few hours after your representatives testified to the North Carolina House Judiciary A Subcommittee in opposition to the bill, one of your students was raped outside North Carolina State University’s Free Expression Tunnel.

    As a current freshman at NC State myself, I believe wholeheartedly that there is a growing need for us students to take protection into our own hands. The “wolfalerts” have been astronomically higher recently than in recent memory, and for that slimey UNC-loving Thomas Ross to spew such ignorant comments about concealed carry is absolutely insulting. That being said, this bill only allows for guns to be kept locked in cars on campus, which is hardly a step up at all in gun rights. I’ll take it, but we still have a long way to go.

  • It’s always nice to see my name associated with well-written articles, but the author is F. Paul Valone, President, Grass Roots North Carolina. I do occasional pieces on AmmoLand, and that’s probably where the confusion came from.
