Catholic University students delegates vote for right to carry guns


Some students at the Catholic University of America are worried about being defenseless in case of an attack, and say it is time to allow guns to be carried on campus. But school administrators have no intentions of changing the gun policy, despite a 16 to 11 vote by the Student Government General Assembly to approve a measure that would allow students with D.C. gun permits to carry on campus grounds. According to university spokesman Victor Nakas, they do not have any plans to change or to consider changing the Code of Student Conduct to accommodate students with guns. Those who oppose guns on campus say campus security is more than competent and guns are not necessary. The issue of bearing arms is one that has been debated on campuses since the Virginia Tech massacre that claimed the lives of thirty-two people eight years ago.
