- All guns, including concealed guns, are banned on college campuses.
- If a person is considered a threat, his or her family members may ask law enforcement to take away his or her guns for a period of time. During this time, the person will be questioned to determine the scope of the claim.
- All guns must be microstamped so that each time the gun is fired, a certain identification code is stamped onto each bullet, making it easy for crime scene investigators to identify whose gun the bullet came from.
No matter what, there will always be heavy debate and criticism around guns and gun laws. There is no escaping that and there is no way to make all parties satisfied. Laws will constantly change and new laws will come into play.
