11) Study on Carrying of Concealed Firearms on a University Campus in the US
A socioscientific study examined the attitudes of university staff and faculty on the carrying of concealed firearms at a US university. The US have the widespread belief that self-arming of students and employees has a deterrent effect on criminals. This study identifies several factors which further this attitude, among them fear of violence, a high level of distrust in police and government as well as general political orientation.
