Many college and university campuses are plagued with crimes. Students report being robbed, physically and sexually assaulted. The problem is that most campuses are declared gun free zones which leaves students defenseless. Criminals target the gun free zones knowing students will be defenseless. If a new North Carolina House Bill passes, students with concealed carry permits would be allowed to carry their weapons on campus.

There are mixed feelings surrounding House Bill 251, which would allow concealed carry permit holders to carry their guns on both ECU and Pitt Community College campuses.

The majority of students we spoke to said it’s anyone’s second amendment right to carry a gun. Those students did not think it was a problem since the permit holder would have follow protocol to obtain their permit. But many did say there should be regulations as to where on campus people could carry a gun.
