Officials at some Connecticut universities are questioning a state-wide weapons ban on campuses, one that includes keeping guns out of the hands of police.
FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports:
The argument for opponents of so-called "gun-free zones," like universities, is that they're easy targets for bad guys. Connecticut even bans college police - one of the first layers of protection for students and staff - from carrying guns.
But just days after a lockdown at Manchester Community College, when a student reported seeing a man with what she thought was a gun, college officials there are now joining police chiefs at other universities in Connecticut to make the case to state lawmakers for stronger police forces and better planning, which would include letting campus police officers carry guns.
