Abstract

The purpose of this study is to explore college students perception of right-to-carry on campus. With gun control being one of the most widely contested topics in both media and society, understanding how the youth of this country's future perceive firearms is imperative in order to interpret how policies will be shaped. While a vast amount of research has been conducted on how society at large feels about right-to-carry, little is known about how college students interpret and exercise the Second Amendment. This research will provide information regarding how the youth of this country perceives firearms. This research will provide policy makers with data on how college students recognize right-to-carry, and if their perceptions have a relationship with their university's location.
