Why not arm the women at George Mason University

The Rule of Reason has this post questioning part of the program to empower women at George Mason University in Fairfax County, Virginia, does not include encouraging them to carry firearms for self-protection, noting that the offices of the National Rifle Association are not far away, if additional information about guns is required.

When I went to the Clemson game with my wife, as we passed the Rotunda walking across from the Corner to the football game, she recalled that we have seen a couple of fistfights right there in daylight, before the very eyes of the statue of Jefferson. I suppose these would have ended differently if the students involved had weapons.
