Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Rep. Keith Ellison introduced the Campus Gun Policy Transparency Act which would require colleges to disclose their policies relating to guns on campus. He claims existing federal law requires colleges to publish campus safety information but not specific policies related to guns. In addition, he claims colleges are not required to report gun-related crime statistics.
“Students have a right to know if their fellow students are bringing guns to class.”
No, they don’t. They don’t have a right to know if their fellow students had an abortion, voted for Democrats, worship in a mosque or drive a Prius. Those are all private activities, nobody’s business but your own.
There is no evidence that guns on campus cause crime (and that’s not due to lack of reporting statistics – if there were lots of shootings on campus, emergency room records would be conclusive proof).
The only possible reason for requiring a federal campus gun policy but not a campus abortion policy, mosque policy or campus Prius policy, it to chill Second Amendment rights.
So, pretty much par for the course for Democrats.
To a conservative, rights are endowed to us by our creator.
To a liberla, “rights” are perks granted to us by a benevolent government.
