Guns On Campus At MSUB: Good Idea?

Wyoming is looking to change it’s gun laws to (among other things) allow individuals licensed to carry concealed weapons do so on a college campus.  That may sound ridiculous to some people, but may soon be a reality for our neighbors to the south.

So what if Montana follows suit with similar measures…how would you feel about having people armed on campus? I know what I would choose, but I’m not a student. This is a question that I would already know the answer to if I were asking it in California or New York, but here in Montana, I’m not sure how students, parents, teachers and the community at large would feel about it.

To get a concealed carry permit in this state doesn’t take a lot, but you do have to meet some basic requirements.

This is from the Montana Department of Justice website:

To obtain a Montana concealed weapons permit, a person must:

  • have been a Montana resident for at least six months
  • be a U.S. citizen
  • be at least 18 years old

Applications are available from the local county sheriff’s office. This site provides a sample application so people can review what is required and gather the necessary documentation prior to going to their sheriff’s office. The form is clearly marked as a “sample only” and cannot be used in place of the application provided by the local sheriff’s office.

If it was entirely up to you, what would you say to having licensed gun owners on campus?
