(Opposing Views) New efforts to curtail the problem of sexual assault on college campuses across the country involve legislation allowing female students to carry firearms for protection.
According to The New York Times, 41 states have banned concealed firearms on campuses, and most universities ban openly carrying firearms. Politicians in 10 states want to change these rules to help curb sexual assault.
In Nevada, state Assemblywoman Michele Fiore voiced her support for new legislation allowing guns on school grounds.
“If these young, hot little girls on campus have a firearm, I wonder how many men will want to assault them. The sexual assaults that are occurring would go down once these sexual predators get a bullet in their head.”
