The student government association at Washington DC’s Catholic University of America has a message for administrators: We want guns on campus.
The group voted 16-11 on a measure voicing support to allow students on campus to carry guns.
But the school says not so fast.
“We don’t have any plans to change or to consider changing the Code of Student Conduct to accommodate students who might wish to have firearms on campus,” university spokesman Victor Nakas told the Washington Post.
The student who sponsored the resolution expressed surprise that the bill passed, and while he doesn’t expect guns on campus anytime soon, he said he hopes to start a conversation on school safety.
Campus police at the papal-chartered university do not carry guns.
