Crime on Campus

As the Georgia Senate debates a bill that will allow students older than 21 and also visitors to carry concealed guns on college campuses, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution took at look at how safe the school grounds are. Here is a list of the numbers and types of serious crimes that have taken place on both Georgia's two-year and four-year colleges. House Bill 859 will be debated in a senate committee. If the committee approves a version of it, it would go to the full senate for a vote. Any changes to the bill would mean it would have to go back to the state House of Representatives for approval of any changes, as they had initially approved it.
