“A libertarian student organization praised the decision”
Count this as a win. People who support freedom need all the victories we can get.
The College Fix reports:
Students can now keep guns in their cars at University of Missouri campuses
Legal gun owners in Missouri can now keep their firearms locked inside their cars while on campus at some of the state universities.
A libertarian student organization praised the decision in an email to The College Fix but said more can be done.
“While this policy change is a good start, schools like the University of Missouri and their administrators who pass such cookie-cutter, in-offensive policy changes simply aren’t doing enough to protect student rights on campus,” Young Americans for Liberty’s Daniel Gonzalez-Allende told The College Fix via email.
“That’s why YAL makes it a point to help students change policies by encouraging and guiding them to engage in grassroots activism to activate more students concerned about their rights on campus,” Gonzalez-Allende said.
One trustee for the public university system the policy would be a “tremendous disservice.”
“I think somebody does something stupid by leaving a handgun laying down on the seat,” Greg Hoberock said, according to ABC 17. “Somebody else walks by the car door and pulls it out. I think we’re doing a tremendous disservice to our students in the city of Columbia.”
“And I’m really really concerned that we’re going to allow guns on campus and not have a rule that if you’re going to leave it in your car, it’s got to be out of the site and locked,” Hoberock said.
The College Fix reached out to Curator Hoberock through his business, hth Companies, but has not received a response. The Fix reached out a month ago. Contact information for curators is not publicly available through the system’s website.
Young Americans for Liberty said that political leaders like Hoberock treat students childishly.
