The Lantern reports that the Ohio State University campus-carry activist was “found dead from gunshot wounds” at a residence near campus when police responded to a shooting around 12:30 a.m. Thursday.
The police report says investigators don’t think the shooting was “random in nature.”
Underiner, the treasurer of Buckeyes for Concealed Carry, testified in November before the Legislature in favor of concealed-carry legislation that would automatically cover campuses, rather than the “opt in” bill that later passed (and Ohio State ignored).
I know we gained campus carry here in Texas, but this is a grim reminder that the fight goes on in most states. It's even more unsettling that this man was a strong proponent of self-protection but was not awarded the right to protect himself in the most effective way possible. I don't know what we as Texans can do to help other states, but I want to do whatever I can until all students can protect themselves. This news is very saddening.
