R.I. Ends Ban On Armed Campus Police

May 24, 2013  | 

Police at the University of Rhode Island could soon be carrying firearms following a vote Thursday by state education officials to end Rhode Island's distinction as the only state to prohibit police on public campuses from carrying guns.

The Rhode Island Board of Education voted 8-1 to allow leaders at the state's three institutions of higher education to decide for themselves whether to arm campus police.

URI President David Dooley favors the idea. The Community College of Rhode Island does not plan to arm its police. Rhode Island College officials are studying the idea and have not decided either way.

R.I. has some of the kookiest law makers/politicans I've ever read about. Their Sen. Whitehouse (real name) just blamed the tornado in Oklahoma on people using gas, diesel, and oil. Had to send him an e-mail asking what he uses? Also, they do not like to give their L.E.O's. complete discretion, and authority. Now these poor folks in a uniform un-armed. Bad guys don't run up, ask who, & what you are. They see a uniform, badge & shoot, period!!!

Politicly correct idiots!! You could not pay me to live in the PC northeast.
Sorry to all the good people there but you get who you vote for.

If you are going to a police department, give your police officers all the tools they need, a firearm should be one of the tools.

Glad to see that the state board of education voted in favor of armed officers. Let's hope that the individual universities look beyond the "touchy-feely" thoughts.
