Each campus should decide what creates safety
I thank Charlie Alison for the guest column on the proposed gun carry law for our college campuses. I am a retired staff member of the University of Arkansas. But unlike Charlie, I do question the motivation of a legislator who proposes to bring guns on our campuses. It is obvious this man is carrying water for the gun lobby.
Filling our campuses with gun-toting professors and students will not make it a safer place, but will make it even less safe. Let the campus police provide the professional protection needed and understand that this bill is not about safety of students, but all about increased gun sales.
If you have a student in our state college system or soon will have or are concerned about campus safety, contact your representative and say each campus must decide what is best for them. TOM CLARK Fayetteville
