Scott Lewis of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus debates Paul Helmke of the Brady Campaign. Both made good points, I thought. Helmke said putting more guns on college campuses will just add to the violence, which, having some knowledge of the frat house and college dorm atmosphere, I find hard to dasagree with. Lewis countered that with fact that in Colorado and Utah there has been concealed carry on college campuses with not one single problem.
Jamie Colby, the Fox Newsperson, asked Scott Lewis about the fact that the Northern Illinois shooter had had a permit. Lewis seemed to be quibbling when he pointed out that he didn't have a concealed carry permit only the type required to purchase the gun legally.
Helmke made a nice clarification, without accusing anyone of lying. On the SCCC web site apparrently it says concealed carry permit holders are five times less likely to commit violent crimes. Most States, Helmke pointed out, won't release the information of who has a concealed carry permit so it's not possible to come up with any statistics to prove that they're not committing the same crimes as everybody else.
