NCAA Guns On Campus

Protesters gather at the University of Texas, Austin, to oppose a state law that expands the rights of concealed handgun license holders to carry their weapons on public college campuses on Oct. 1, 2015. The NCAA has a rule forbidding guns on the premises of its championship events, presumably meaning Houston’s NRG Stadium will be gun free for the Final Four next month.

At Alabama, one of the team’s best players allegedly delivered a gun that was used in a fatal shooting. At New Mexico State, a player avoided charges for shooting and killing a student in what he said was self-defense, even though he was carrying a gun in violation of school rules.

At Michigan State, sports were suspended after gun violence on campus left three students dead. At LSU, the team’s leading wide receiver was arrested, but not charged, for carrying a gun through the French Quarter in New Orleans.
