Only 21 of 50 states in the nation prohibit firearms on University campuses. However, that is counterproductive with the goal to reduce gun violence. Guns on campus would increase the prevalence of violent crimes, the number of student suicides, and the chances of a campus shooting. Guns and education are not compatible. Guns compromise and jeopardize the safety of all students, faculty, and staff on university premises. While mass shootings are very prevalent in today's society, the presence of more guns to counteract an active shooting does not make the situation any more safe. Furthermore, the job of resolving gun violence should be left to professionals such as the police force, not armed private citizens. It is unlikely that a student or staff member with a concealed gun can stop a mass shooting from happening. Guns on campus poses more problems than solutions. University campuses should be a safe haven for students to comfortably learn without the worry of a gun going off, accidentally or intentionally. Concealed carry and open carry should be prohibited at all university campuses.
