What about letting students defend themselves?

The Morning News: News : Safer Campus May Require Safer Surrounding Neighborhoods Gee, ya think? If you put a school in the middle of a war zone, some of it is going to spill over.

But there is only so much you can do. Why not admit that that society in which the school exists is not perfect and let the students defend themselves against those imperfect situations?
Others at the hearing said they would like to see more police officers and escorts on campus, especially at night, when many graduate students are in class. Elizabeth Vaughn-Neely, head of the university's Department of Educational Leadership, said many students are also scared to walk to their cars after class.
Let the students have concealed carry on campus, and they won't be defenseless victims (or at least the goblins can't know they are) when they walk back to their cars or apartments.

But then the Let wouldn't "feel safe" or something on campus. (They might actually be safe, but it is all about the feelings.)
