Well, it didn’t take long for common sense to set in on those most vulnerable. Following the Islamic jihad knife attack at Ohio State University on Monday, there was a lot of Communist thinking gun grabbers who took to Twitter to urge for more gun confiscation measures. However, those affected closest to the attack are singing a different tune, including Miss Ohio. They are demanding they be allowed to exercise their right to keep and bear arms on campus in order to protect themselves.
Buckeyes for Concealed Carry on Campus, which is a chapter of the national group Students for Concealed Carry, posted a statement on its Facebook page and created an online petition via Change.org asking the Ohio Senate body to revise HB 48.
On Monday, the group posted, “We’re thankful for the prompt and effective response of our fine police department. OSU & Columbus police officers are some of the best officers in the land. However, as demonstrated today, even their best efforts can’t protect us all.”
“We also affirmed that Ohio’s campus carry ban did nothing to make us safer as well,” the Facebook post read. “Please join us in demanding a change to Ohio law. We should not be forced to decide between an education and our safety.”
“The authority to regulate firearms on our public property should lie with the general assembly, not some appointed group of individuals who are not accountable to the people of Ohio through the election process,” the group said.
“Please, for the sake of our best and brightest, amend HB48 and pass real campus carry,” the group added. “The time to restrict their right to choose is no more.”
If that was not enough, third-year OSU law student and former Miss Ohio USA 2014, Madison Gesiotto told Independent Journal Review:
Criminals and terrorists do not respect the law, and they will not follow the law. We need campus carry to protect ourselves and our friends on campus. I am sick of schools serving as victim target zones for these criminals and terrorists. Instead, we should be empowered to protect ourselves and those around us.”
OSU is a gun free zone, which is where 92% of mass shootings take place. However, when it comes to someone using a butcher knife to attack others in the name of Islam, I say never bring a knife to a gun fight. Let the students carry their guns, let them train, and let them live and defend others.
