The Washington Times Daily - - NATION - — Jes­sica Chas­mar

Ohio State Univer­sity Pres­i­dent Michael Drake still op­poses al­low­ing peo­ple li­censed to carry con­cealed hand­guns on cam­pus after a So­ma­l­i­born stu­dent’s car-and-knife ram­page that in­jured 11 peo­ple on Mon­day.

State law­mak­ers are mulling a bill that would al­low con­cealed carry by li­censed in­di­vid­u­als on cam­puses and would al­low col­leges to ap­prove or re­ject the mea­sure, Colum­bus Busi­ness First re­ported.

“None of my col­leagues or my­self think that’s a good idea,” Mr. Drake said Wed­nes­day morn­ing on WOSU Ra­dio’s “All Sides with Ann Fisher.”

On Mon­day, OSU stu­dent Ab­dul Razak Ar­tan plowed a car into a group of pedes­tri­ans, then be­gan stab­bing peo­ple be­fore a cam­pus po­lice of­fi­cer fa­tally shot him.
