COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Big guns on campus. That’s what Ohio State students saw going to class Monday. A group of gun rights advocates held an open carry walk in response to last Monday’s knife attack on campus.
A little more than a dozen people walked. There were more guns than people! While it was a scary sight for many students, the group said guns would make campus safer.
“I hope we open some people’s eyes. I hope they do start asking questions,” said marcher Hunter Sorm.
Jeffry Smith, a firearms instructor and gun rights activist out of Cincinnati, organized the walk. He said it was coincidence a police officer was in the area during the attack last Monday.
“It was absolutely luck. It was fate. It was absolutely luck and fate that it happened as it did,” said Smith. He wants OSU to allow concealed carry on campus.
