Jarvis DeBerry does us all a great service by calling attention to Rep. Ernest Wooton's push to allow concealed weapons on college campuses.
My 4-year-old son is a pre-K student at the daycare center on the campus of Loyola University New Orleans.
Rep. Wooton wants to help keep my child and Loyola's college-age students safe by ensuring that we have as many guns on campus as possible.
However, Rep. Wooton's idea does not go far enough. Please, sir, allow us to arm the pre-schoolers! Given the amount of time that many young boys practice playing cops and robbers, they must be excellent shots. As a parent, I would be proud to send my boy to Loyola's campus packing heat for the safety of all.
In addition, the children at the adjacent Holy Name of Jesus Elementary School should be given guns, as should the students at Lusher High School just up the street. The crime statistics for my city make it obvious that what we need are more guns on our streets and campuses.
Loyola's campus was already named by Reader's Digest as one of the safest in the nation. With Rep. Wooton's help--and guns for all--we can all dream of a day when Loyola will be ranked number one.
