At USA Today, Students for Concealed Carry public relations director Zachary Zalneraitis has written an op-ed explaining the benefits of Campus Carry. He notes that "gun-free zones" only serve as a magnet for crime, and explains that permit holders are responsible, law-abiding citizens. Concealed carry on campus, therefore, offers the ability to defend oneself, and inhibits criminals that know some students are armed. Zalneraitis says that the counter editorial by the staff of USA Today focuses largely on stopping mass shootings, a by-product of "gun-free zones." Originally aired on NRA News Cam & Co 06/09/15.
