All across the country, the BGs are realizing that an excellent location to find unarmed, and therefore safe-to-rob, victims (most of whom carry laptops, fancy cellphones, etc.) is in and around college campuses.
In Atlanta, the students at Georgia Tech were robbed at least weekly until the politicians pressured the police to put whatever resources it took to stop it. Now they are picking on the students at Georgia State, just a few miles away. Once the police/politicians think it's clear to move on the something else, the thugs will be back.
If you have someone you care about in college or will be going to college sooner or later, let your politicians know that you want to allow these people to defend themselves-allow the ones otherwise legally entitled to carry a weapon to do so on and off campus.
