Guns Can Equalize the Playing Field

An actual balanced piece on gun ownership and guns on campuses. Who’d have thought it was possible. ‘My gun serves as an equalizer’: Raped as a Temple student, she now fights for gun rights.

A disturbing story of a campus rape on Temple University’s campus.

Public universities in Pennsylvania make their own rules about campus carry. Some allow firearms in certain open spaces on campus; Temple prohibits them everywhere.

Temple University declined to comment about campus carry or Lindquist’s case.

It is fairly long, and it isn’t perfect, but it tries to tell the truth about a painful subject. And paints the fact that disarming people puts the small and the weak at the mercy of strong and the violent.
