Georgetown students defend Second Amendment, call on university to arm police officers

In response to the ongoing debate about the safety of gun-free college campuses, students at one private university have called on their school’s administration to take necessary action to ensure both students and campus police have access to firearms as a method of self-defense.

Students at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., are calling for campus administrators to fully arm the on-campus police force, in addition to allowing students the choice to carry guns for self-defense while on campus.

Currently, university regulations restrict the ability of the police to guarantee a safe environment on campus, as police officers are not given guns to carry. According to the Georgetown University Police Department, “All GUPD officers are unarmed. … Officers carry safety batons and pepper spray and are provided with a protective vest.”

Georgetown University is a Jesuit school. Jesuits have been a persecuted minority for thousands of years and know how to defend themselves. Jesuits are not stupid.
