College group against SB 858 undefined

To the editor:

The OCCC College Democrats club has voted unanimously to oppose the Concealed Carry on Campus legislation that is being brought before the Oklahoma Legislative session.

We feel that any legislation that would allow firearms to be brought into an institution of higher learning, where the free exchange of ideas should be safe and often, is dangerous and potentially deadly.

We urge any and all legislators considering a vote on this measure to consider the safety and well being of all Oklahoma students and to consider the requests of a majority of security professionals and educational professionals for a no vote on this measure.

We also urge all students to contact their legislators, whether for or against the measure, and voice their opinions.
