I had occasion to visit The University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA recently and really enjoyed it. I was amazed to discover that I was allowed to carry concealed there. I have a friend at work who went to UVA. He pointed me to this article, written by a student there:
The University’s prohibition of concealed firearms on Grounds severely limits the safety of students
--It is very concise on the issue. Forcing students to rely on a third party for defense is impracticable and unsafe.
