Students at the Washington DC-based George Washington University vehemently opposed arming the school’s police officers. They protested it earlier this spring and now that the change has been implemented without the sky actually falling, the school’s delicate souls still aren’t happy about it. Why? Because these snowflakes believe that police officers pose a bigger threat to their safety than violent criminals.  This in the heart of D.C.

It isn’t clear if ‘higher education’ in this case refers to the level of matriculation or the average daily consumption of marijuana by the school’s students in question. Because short of habitual use of THC, clear-thinking people can’t actually think they face a greater risk from armed police officers than they do from recidivist law-breakers. Can they?

Sure, there are anomalies, but generally speaking, an armed society tends to be a very polite society.

NBC4 Washington covered it . . .

Dozens of George Washington University students took to the streets Monday to voice their opposition to the school’s plan to arm some campus police officers with guns.

Interim President Mark Wrighton announced in a letter to students Thursday that the university’s Board of Trustees directed the administration to develop a plan to arm specially trained GW Police Department officers…

But some students who marched to the president’s campus home on Monday argued that arming officers will make them feel less safe.

Things haven’t improved much since the proposal was approved and implemented. In fact Campus Reform visited the GWU in recent days to talk with the students to get their thoughts.  Here’s part of their story . . .

Even when acknowledging the mass shootings that have plagued the nation, increasing criminal incidents on Campus, students were more concerned about the Police being armed.

“I’m personally not for it,” said one student “Why add guns to the problem?” 

But despite most acknowledging that increasing crime rates were a problem, many of the students maintained the stance that it would be best to leave the police unarmed.

The video produced by Campus Reform highlighted the reasoning of some of the school’s deepest thinkers . . .

All it will take for these hapless, hoplophobic scholars to fully embrace gun ownership and the right to keep and bear arms is a mostly peaceful event that leaves them feeling threaten for their safety. Not that anything bad ever happens on or around the GWU campus.

It’s amazing how people embrace gun ownership after they become the victims of or narrowly escape being affected by violent crime. It tends to changes their whole outlook on guns. Because, as most of us know: the only thing that stops bad people with evil in their hearts is a good person with a gun.

  1. The college student interviews always show how far this country has declined. Thumb sucking liberals that just can’t grasp the concept of violent criminals being in their midst and zero inclination to protect themselves or their friends. Crime will always flourish when you have a population of zombies like this.

  2. This should be no surprise to people. Public schools start their indoctrination at the pre-K level, and the woke socialism is pounded into their skulls from then on. By the time most reach adulthood, they have been so brainwashed that America sucks and communism is good, that they know nothing else. This has been a 40-year effort by the left, teacher’s unions and our government to replace individualism with a cradle-to-grave nanny state. It has been wildly successful. The vast majority of GenZ and Millennials aren’t worth two squirts of piss.

  3. “I just think, like…” Need I quote more? How many students at this venerable institution are from Highland Park, IL? Last evening Highland Park H.S. parents demanded armed security and metal detectors on the HP campus. Those students must be disappointed in their parent’s problem-solving skills and critical thinking. If only the parents had attended GW…

  4. The theory goes that a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun. You don’t have to be a college kid nowadays to realize that the cops aren’t the good guys.

    1. That’s about the equivalent to saying “gun owners aren’t the good guys.”
      C’mon. Let’s try not to paint with a firehose, okay?

    2. Sir: That’s the decentest thing you’ve ever said to me.
      I’m just gonna quote from one of the greatest rock bands in history – before FAT AXL ate SKINNY AXL, that is – “…one damn apple spoil de whole damn bunch.” [‘]
      One bad cop, protected by the other “good” cops, makes cops bad.
      I could regale you with DECADES of personal anecdotes, one of which was a recent felony charge for self-defense, but I can’t hold your attention any longer than I can my dog’s.
      I was the “good guy with the gun.” NOW I defend MYSELF and MYSELF alone. I quit a sixteen year volunteer firefighter position as well. I will no longer mentor kids, nor be alone with them ANYWHERE (and, no, you clowns! The felony charge was a firearm charge for pulling it in self-defense). I also no longer stop to help people on the side of the road, which I have done my entire life. The risks to a grown man are far too severe. Lookit’ Daniel Penny TODAY. Indicted. For protecting a subway car-load of potential victims of the predator. Not gonna happen to me. Not gonna give crooked or stupid cops a chance to foul up my defense in ANY case.

  5. Paraphrasing this vast brain trust, “Arming the police would be racist”. How in the hell can they say this without also saying it would be homophobic, transphobic, and hydrophobic?

  6. Was the guy in the top photo the fluffer for the Moscow Ballet? Nice tshirt, Mr. Not So Manly. He looks like a guy I knew in college who didn’t even know how to put air in a car tire.

  7. Fortunately you can find more brains (and brawn) in an Army or Marine Corps combat platoon, even under President Pudding Brains than you can find among liberal college students. Yes, even among Marines who grunt a lot.
