This article talks about keeping guns off of campuses. Why it relates to gov and law is because gun rights are protected in the 2nd Amendment. According to the author "in legislative debates, some have advocated the right to carry concealed weapons on campus, reasoning that having a gun protects the individual and the community and lessens the likelihood of a rampage like the one at Virginia Tech in 2007 in which 32 students and faculty members were killed."

Heller that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm. Eighteen-to-twenty-year-olds may possess and use handguns, receive them as gifts and buy them from private owners. But licensed firearm dealers are prohibited from selling such weapons to those under the age of 21.
