On Thursday February 12 from 10-4 p.m. in the Student Center Atrium there will be an event entitled Concealed Carry and Women’s Safety. This event is hosted by Students for Concealed Carry on Campus and the DePaul Conservative Alliance. As stated in the title of the event it will deal with issues of self protection through the use of a concealed firearm. The Students for Concealed Carry on Campus have been motivated by tragedies such as Virginia Tech and NIU in to try and help students learn how they can protect themselves.
Although concealed carry on campus is not legal these groups are striving to make it legal hoping that this change will bring about a safer campus atmosphere. Having more guns on campus seems to me like it would do nothing but make campuses across
