FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Shooting at Florida State University Library

Tallahassee, Florida – November 20 – Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and all those affected by the shooting at Florida State University this morning. Thankfully, the excellent police response prevented the incident this morning from being much worse.

Remember, there is no proof or indication that lawful campus carry would have stopped or affected this incident. However, it should be noted that the ban preventing concealed carry licensees from defending themselves the rest of the time on campus also did not prevent the shooting.

As a result of this tragedy, we implore Florida State University President John Thrasher to reconsider his stance on campus carry despite being one of the main opponents to Florida’s campus carry bill in 2011. We also ask students, faculty and parents who are concerned about safety on campus to call and email to request he do the same.
