Permitting university students to carry handguns on campus would reduce campus violence.

Attacks such as the one at Virginia Tech in 2007 would have ended more quickly, or even been thwarted, had Cho's fellow students been armed with and trained to handle handguns. If a prospective gunman (or woman) knew beforehand that a large portion of the population they are considering attacking is armed, it reasons to believe that they might reconsider their anticipated actions. Most university students are old enough to carry and should be permitted to do so.

Well, I can see why I lost this one. I'm used to a longer period to enter my argument and forget to check back. If you'll offer a rematch I'll be more than happy to accept.
