Others point out that legal gun owners on campus will be difficult to distinguish from active shooters,
Clue: The active shooter is the guy shooting people.

why is it so difficult for people to understand basic facts?

If I can manage to not shoot up the various parts of the country I have been in for the last 12+ years as a CCW holder, why will that suddenly change when I set foot on a college (or other) campus?

Why does my t-shirt covering my pistol create such a magical ward against panic and mayhem compared to my dress shirt being tucked in like a civilized man?

Why are liberals and (some) cops so unable to distinguish between a holstered gun napping on my hip and a series of loud bangs, high velocity impacts and scent of burnt gun powder that would be native to an active shooter scene?

Moreover, the eleven U.S. colleges and universities that currently allow concealed carry on campus have not seen any resulting incidents of gun violence, gun accidents, or gun thefts.
Clue.

Campus carry has been the law here for years. CU tried to make an issue of it, but failed. It's been a complete nonstarter.

Because Da Feelz!
There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.

As of this week Ohio colleges and universities can no longer hide behind state law to put up Criminal Protection Zone signs. They now have to decide and take responsibility for putting them up.

I think the majority had a knee jerk "keep the signs up", but I take it as another minor step forward. As the culture becomes more accepting, as CCW becomes more normalized, and as more areas open up their campuses with no "blood in the streets", it gives an opportunity to work on individual schools rather that taking them on all at once.
