Georgetown Faculty Passes Proposal to Ban Firearms From Campus

Georgetown Faculty Passes Proposal to Ban Firearms From Campus

“Law enforcement officials will be exempt from the ban”

As we know, no one ever attacks a gun free zone. Right?

The College Fix reports:

Georgetown faculty passes proposal calling for firearms ban

The Georgetown University faculty senate recently passed a proposal that calls for banning faculty, staff, students and visitors from bringing any firearms on campus, a move that is allegedly meant to make the university a safer place to work and learn.

The new policy would apply “to anyone present on campus, including students, faculty, employees and visitors and prohibits all firearms, explosives and weapons on Georgetown grounds or property, at events and in any vehicle controlled by the university,” the student newspaper The Hoya reports.

The university currently prohibits weapons on its campus by way of the human resources department and student code of conduct, but the school “has not previously instituted a universitywide policy,” the paper states.

Law enforcement officials will be exempt from the ban, as will chemical weapons like pepper spray and “armed objects on display for artistic or cultural value.”

From the report:

The faculty senate worked in conjunction with [the Georgetown University Police Department] and the Office of General Counsel to draft the policy, which will be sent out to all faculty for objections or suggestions. The senate will review the policy Jan. 17.

Co-Chair Margaret Gleason (COL ’22) of Georgetown’s chapter of March For Our Lives, a national movement in favor of stronger gun violence prevention measures, said the policy may help students feel safer on campus.

Comments

Yes, no firearms on campus, except for those possessed by angry malcontents or crazies, even those who have been under investigation for past violence or anti-social messaging. Such people should have the freedom to do anything they want to do. And if they kill a few people on campus, we cannot try them because their actions then prove they are insane. That will show how sympathetic these faculty members are to the unfortunate.
And this is sure to make students feel safer, especially if they are on some other campus.

Or the malcontents and crazies could simply run people down using motor vehicles, then get out of the vehicle and stab or hack everyone within reach.
