Cyclone Conservatives: Liberals Lose This Battle: Arming Campus Police

Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives

While the debate across Iowa has centered around the war on terrorism,
immigration, gay marriage and which presidential candidate is worth
supporting, one issue has really heated up on the university campuses
as of late: the issue of arming campus police officers. Even before
the tragic events at Virginia Tech last spring, the issue of providing
guns to police officers has been something that has been up for
consideration. However, like many public policy discussions, the
debate becomes more intense after a noteworthy event, i.e. Virginia
Tech. If you recall, the Iowa General Assembly took action on this
issue last spring. The Iowa House passed a resolution pushing for
armed campus officers whereas the much more liberal Iowa Senate
defeated such an idea.
