Nate Kreuter’s article “Concealed in Our Classrooms” suggests that it should be unlawful to permit the caring of a firearm on campus. He is against permitting students to carry on college campuses. Kreuter backs up his claim by giving examples of how this will negatively effect the situation if an active shooter was prominent on a college campus. Kreuter’s purpose of his argument is to point out a few ways that students with guns on campus is a bad thing. He does this to persuade anybody who is on the fence about this subject. Given the logical way Kreuter goes about his argument and the way he uses technical language, I would say that he is writing to fellow teachers and faculty at the university he teaches at.
I wanted to start off with an article that is against concealed carry on college campuses since I am for CC on college campuses. I think this article was good in the fact that Nate Kreuter is a professor at Western Californian University, where concealed carry is not permitted on the campus. This makes him a stakeholder in this issue. I thought it was interesting that he has guns and a CC permit himself but is against the matter. I think he had a good point when he said by having civilians acting on a scene just creates more confusion, however I would’ve liked to see him go more in depth and cite additional sources. All and all a fair article.
