    Headline: More Guns on Campuses Won't Make People Safer, Researchers Say
    by Jon Schuppe

    The crux of the article appears to be an article by researchers at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, who just released a study that argues the campus-carry movement is based on flawed assumptions about the relationship between civilian gun use, violent crime and mass shootings, including several killings on college campuses.

    It's important to note that the report is NOT peer-reviewed and was headed by the Director of the Center for Gun Policy and Research and Deputy Director of Research for the Center for the Prevention of Youth Violence and that who funded the report, with a panel of academics from many campuses (i.e., costly coordination) was not disclosed.
