Or You Could Just Allow Campus Carry

TV station WAVE-3 in Louisville, Kentucky ran a story this week on self-protection for women. They wanted to know if some of the "secret weapons" for women were worth the money and they asked a University of Louisville police officer for his opinion. Some he liked and some he didn't.

I do agree with his suggestion to be aware of your surroundings and to avoid getting into risky situations. That is good advice for anyone. However, neither the story nor Officer Graham mentioned the one thing sure to make a rapist think twice - a legally concealed handgun.


  1. Yes. A concealed handgun is a pretty good "secret weapon." And why not a real knife instead of a plastic shank hidden inside a brush???

  2. I'm local to WAVE3, and I had to delete my posting. It was too angry. There have been muggings, etc., on the UofL campus in the past few years, and the best they will tell students is "Don't go out at night alone".

    One day sanity will return on this issue, but I doubt I will live to see it.
