Resolution Regarding Concealed Weapons on Campus

The Chapter Council has passed the following resolution in response to Florida HB 4005:
Be it resolved that we, the Chapter Council of the United Faculty of Florida – University of Florida, oppose proposed legislation that would allow concealed weapons on university campuses. We are  persuaded by the arguments and evidence suggesting that an increase in deadly firearms on campus will not enhance the safety of our students, faculty, or staff.  We believe, rather, that such an increase in firearms is more likely to make our campus less safe, because of the potential increase in suicide, collateral damage, accidental shootings, and confusion regarding who is the aggressor in a given situation.
