The recent mass murders in Texas and Ohio raise the questions: How can we reduce the death toll of tragedies like these? How can we stop tragedies like these? One possibility is the use of security guards. Another is the increase in police presence. However, another more subtle and possibly efficient solution is allowing people to defend themselves, allowing citizens to be armed. One case in California where an armed homeless man intervened in a robbery shows us what armed citizens can do.
On Tuesday, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin signed Kentucky SB 150 into law. This bill extends constitutional carry into Kentucky to concealed carry. Prior to SB 150, Kentucky limited constitutional carry to open carry. As a result, the list of constitutional carry states now rises to 16.

The vast majority of college campuses do not allow campus carry. In fact, 16 states completely outlaw it. Pennsylvania and Virginia are two of the 23 states that allow campuses to set their own policies for firearms.
