When a state law allowing guns on Arkansas college campuses goes into effect later this year, most of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock will be exempt because of a high school moving in, according to the charter school's chief executive.

UAM is right across the street from Drew Central, a K-12 school. How are guns allowed at UAM? There's a student organization building adjacent to the playground. This gun madness should not be allowed on campus.

Sure, dflamingo, be sure to notify your local thugs of all the 'gun-free' zones. I'm sure they will politely leave their weapons at home when they prowl those areas with those big NO GUNS signs..

Hey JIMBOB47... Someone forgot to tell the thugs, because the historical on-campus crime rate is a tiny fraction of the off-campus rate. You are 30 times more likely to die in a criminal homicide off-campus.

US campus homicide rate: 0.2
Arkansas homicide rate: 6.1
(per 100,000 pop, source USDoED, FBI UCR)

"Thugs" cant get into college Jimbo. Schools are shot up by students. 9 out of 10 are done by suburban white kids

In the neighborhood that UALR is in, they should be issuing guns and not banning them.
