    GS)--Several Oklahoma legislators said they want college students and faculty to be able to carry guns on campuses, but officials at Oklahoma's two largest schools disagree. GOP state Reps. John Enns of Enid and Ralph Shortey of Oklahoma City argue that licensed gun owners should be able to protect themselves while on university campuses, according to news reports. "I hear from a lot of parents of college kids, and I hear from college kids, as well," Enns said. "For anyone to say our college campuses are safe, that's totally not true." Enns and Shortey, along with Republican state Sen. AJ Griffin of Guthrie, will conduct a joint legislative study this year of concealed carry of firearms on college campuses. Griffin said their goal will be to learn what the best practices are for firearms on college campuses and see if there can be a reasonable accommodation. Currently, licensed gun owners cannot carry their guns on campus without the written consent of a college's president. President David Boren of the University of Oklahoma said placing guns on campus, except in the hands of trained police officers, would be a mistake. Michael Robinson, Oklahoma State University's chief public safety officer, said he is concerned about an increase in suicides, the third-leading cause of death among people ages 15 to 24.
