15. You're supposed to simply accept the moral panic mongering without asking awkward questions...

 

...or looking at a Kansas City Star article linked in the original article, for that matter:

After concealed carry allowed on campus, KU hired more safety officers and crime fell

While the national debate over arming teachers heats up, the University of Kansas where this year students and faculty can carry concealed weapons on campus reports that crime there is down.

In a report released late last week, KU Public Safety officials said crime on the Lawrence campus declined 13 percent from 2016 to 2017. In the first six months of permitted concealed guns on campus, there have been no criminal weapons violations.

KU Public Safety attributes the drop in crime to steps the university took to improve campus security after the legalization of concealed carry. Three additional police officers and three security officers were hired.
