(Winston-Salem Journal) — Student government associations from 11 of the 17 schools in the University of North Carolina system announced their opposition Wednesday morning to House Bill 937 in a proclamation sent to members of the N.C. General Assembly.

The bill, which would allow concealed-carry permit holders to keep firearms in locked vehicles on college campuses, is currently in conference committee.

The proclamation was signed by the student body presidents at Appalachian State University, East Carolina University, North Carolina Central University, UNC Asheville, UNC Charlotte, UNC Greensboro, UNC Pembroke, UNC School of the Arts, Winston-Salem State University and North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics.

Republican-led NC General Assembly is now in a conference to reconcile NC House and NC Senate versions of a bill to restore some gun rights to our citizens. Whiners all over the state are coming out in droves to complain about various legislative initiatives (tax reform, voter ID, abortion restrictions, gun rights, etc.) and finding a sympathetic press. It's an exciting time as the tides have turned after decades of Democrat control in NC.

So those Student Government Associations (SGA's) want crazed lunatic gunmen to be free to run all over campus shooting anyone they come across? How nice of them to care so much about crazed lunatics with loaded weapons!

Or is it that the SGA's want all guns banned and they think criminals will listen and obey the law?

How stupid do you really have to be to be liberal?

signed by the student body presidents

So what do student body presidents know? Do they represent the student body? I doubt it. Most of the young people in NC are down to earth and good people. Student body presidents generally suffer from exaggerated egos. And believe anything they are told.

The “Whiners” believe that the State (in this case NC) is a jealous God and shall have no other gods before it, and that no one has the right to protect themselves, but must beg State, the God, for protection.

As a life member of Grass Roots N.C. let me be the first to say to all the student body sheep..Go suck your thumb and hide so the bad old guns won’t scare your poor little marxist buddies in the institutes of lower learning you populate.

Indoctrinated commie idiots; no sympathy when there is a sniper on your campuses.

Anyone of these fools remember the University of Virginia shooting, where students ran to their cars, got their guns and stopped a potential massacre of students by a gunman on campus???

I’ll try and find a link.

Most Student Body Presidents are just practicing to run for higher office, probably after law school.

Seems to me that a college, or any business, that bans guns on their premises should have the authority to extend that to cars on their property - provided that they provide convenient secure storage alternatives for permit holders’ legally carried firearms.

Universities keep turning out more enemies than they do allies.
