Lifting of CHL ban at Kettering University sign now

The purpose of this petition is to show the desire to allow Kettering University students and staff, including Campus Safety, with a state-issued Concealed Handgun License (CHL) to carry weapons on campus for the defense of themselves and others in the Kettering University community. Michigan state law will dictate where it is and is not legal to carry. By law, dorms and classrooms are off limits. Lifting the ban will therefore be beneficial on occasions like crossing campus to someone's house, while in the Campus Center, working in the library, and in the student SAE garage where students are often alone working on projects long into the night. In order to attain a CHL, a comprehensive training course must be passed. This includes passing criminal and mental health background checks, demonstrating safe firearm handling and marksmanship, and understanding the legalities associated with use of deadly force such as drawing a weapon is permitted only to defend a person from grave bodily injury or death. It should be noted that in the vast majority of cases where a licensee draws a gun no shots are ever fired, the mere presence of the gun is enough deterrent to stop the criminal. The law also requires that handguns are kept concealed beneath clothing; this will ensure that a person carrying does not draw any attention or create any distractions. It is becoming clear that Campus Safety and the police are not able to be present everywhere at once; therefore we should be given the opportunity to do everything within our legal power to defend ourselves and each other from an increasing risk of attack.
