The Muncie Star Press doesn't think much of the idea of concealed weapons on the Ball State campus:
In Indiana, there is one very good reason for a campus ban on concealed weapons: Just about anyone can get a gun for any reason.
The only requirement for a gun permit is that you pay the fee, which runs around $100 or so, depending on whether you are applying for a four-year or lifetime permit.
There is no requirement gun owners actually be trained to use their weapons.
But that's not so much an argument against concealed weapons on campus as it is an argument for the need to rethink the state's concealed carry law, to require training, for example. If the state law were changed to suit the newpaper editors, would they then approve of concealed carry on campus? I doubt it.
