Letter to the Editor: Guns everywhere, but no cigars

Given the shooting fatality last week just down the road from the new shooting center and the new campus tobacco free policy, I hope George-Anne reporters will help answer a few questions. Can we smoke in our cars in the on campus parking lots? We can have small arsenals of people guns in our cars on our “gun free” campus, so doesn’t that mean we can smoke there too? Just how many guns are on campus in our parking lots is something that would be interesting to know –and what kind of guns they are too. This isn’t a mental health issue as many countries have similar mental health problems per capita, but the U.S. is alone with gun deaths per capita.
