Would Campus Carry Have Made
A Difference At Ohio State?

By Bob Owens. November 29th, 2016

24 hours after a Somali Muslim refugee carried out a terrorist attack against his fellow students at Ohio State University, we're getting a much clearer picture of how exactly the attack went down, and how quickly an Ohio State University police officer who just happened to be in the area at the right time put the terrorist down.

An Ohio State police officer was being hailed a hero for his quick reaction after killing a man a minute after he drove his car into a crowd and then stabbed multiple people Monday.

Officer A___ H____*, who had only joined the department in January 2015, was responding to reports of a nearby gas leak when the suspect jumped a curb on campus at around 9:52 a.m.

H____ ordered the attacker, later identified as Abdul Razak Ali Artan, to drop the butcher's knife and then shot him when he didn't obey the command, university president Michael Drake said ............

............... If one of the students, faculty, or staff on-scene was a lawful concealed carrier, however, the attack might have been ended as quickly or almost as quickly as it was by Officer H____. A knife-armed attacker--especially one fixated on someone else--is a fairly easy target, and if Artan has been dumb enough to advance directly on a concealed carrier, odds are that even a concealed carrier of average competence would have likely put multiple rounds center mass, ruining his day and ending his ability to continue his attack. .......

While (fortunately) the threat was neutralized quickly by a police officer, this could well not have happened that fast at all. More likely usually, delay could have been measured in minutes, with much greater harm caused to even more victims. We see yet again a 'gun-free-zone' with no campus carry, and thus an inherent vulnerability, being on the receiving end of an attacker and only saved this time by good fortune. Bottom line - force can only be satisfactorily met with force.
