University Implements Campus Carry. Crime Goes Down.
Concealed carry works. Why else would the left loathe it so? Their disdain for all things effective obviously carries to firearms. Naturally, gun control activists whined plenty when a Kansas university implemented campus carry. Self-defense is problematic to lethargic social justice slugs. The mere sight of guns sends them into a fit of "I can't even" (see: A Fat SJW Walks Into a Gun Store. Hilarity Ensues.).
The triggering may soon reach an all-time high now university police have released numbers showing how the new gun policy affects campus life. Spoiler: it's not the violent bloodbath liberals claimed it would be.
The number of crimes reported on the University of Kansas campus went down notably from 2016 to 2017, university police announced. Overall, crime decreased 13 percent, with 671 criminal offenses reported to KU police in 2017 compared to 770 incidents in 2016, according to a news release from the KU Office of Public Safety.
Notably, with lawful concealed carry of handguns being allowed on campus for the first time beginning July 1, 2017, KU police tallied zero criminal weapons violations in 2017, according to crime statistics provided by police.
Crime went down and, more importantly, there were no criminal weapon violations. Despite the invitation to let a gun tag along with students to class. As far as we know, no rogue guns left their holsters to rape anyone. This tells us a few things. One, embracing lawful carriers doesn't equal more gun incidents. In fact, there were more weapon violations before the new policy.
Prior to 2017, campus police have recorded a total of 14 weapons violations since 2008, according to the statistics.
The report also notes how the number of assaults more than halved from 2016 to 2017. Tends to happen when potential victims are packing heat. Weapons which could singe off more than just eyebrows. Hashtags beware!
Campus carry may not be the answer to all university crime problems. Pro-gun policies don't magically stop all bad things from happening. But they help. At the very least, these numbers show the new policy isn't hurting anyone.
Oh, and remember how campus "rape culture" is supposedly a thing? It actually isn't, but let's pretend it is. Methinks ladies being allowed to tote more than just a rape whistle will help.
The statistics paint a stark contrast to the crazed, violent imaginings of gun control peons. As such, you likely won't be seeing these results anywhere in the mainstream media. Too reasonable. We got you covered though:
