Does Campus Carry Lead to an Increase in Sexual Assaults?

Student For Concealed CarryHere are the bullet points on the debate over whether campus carry leads to an increased rate of on-campus sexual assault:

  • Campus carry opponents have taken to citing a study conducted by the Campaign to Keep Guns off Campus, to argue that campus carry leads to an increase in on-campus sexual assaults.
  • These campus carry opponents ignore the fact that the cited study (which was not peer-reviewed) acknowledges that its results certainly do not prove that concealed carry causes more crime.”
  • These campus carry opponents ignore or dismiss the fact that the campus carry policy working group at the University of Texas at Austin concluded, “The evidence does not in any way support the claim of a causal link between campus carry and an increased rate of sexual assault.”
  • These campus carry opponents argue, Given that Colorado and Utah shield the identities of concealed-carry license holders, there is no way to know if people who hold CHLs were the perpetrators of these acts of sexual violence”; however, that is not entirely true. In both Utah and Colorado, the unlicensed possession of a firearm on a college campus is a crime (a felony in Colorado, a Class A misdemeanor in Utah). Therefore, in any case in which criminal charges have been filed, it would be possible to look at both the police report and the charging documents and ascertain if the crime actually took place on a college campus (the Clery Act data used in the CKGOC study includes surrounding areas), if the suspect is reported to have used a handgun in the commission of the crime, and if the suspect was charged with the unlawful possession of a firearm on a college campus (indicating that the suspect did not possess a concealed handgun license, or CHL).
  • The campus carry opponents touting this campus-carry-leads-to-rape theory could take these extra steps to corroborate their claims, but they don’t want to because they know that no campus-carry college has reported a sexual assault in which an armed CHL holder was either the assailant or the victim.
  • According to the 1996-2013 conviction rates maintained by the Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas CHL holders were convicted of aggravated sexual assault at 1/6 the rate of unlicensed Texans (NOTE: that statistic includes all Texas children in the number of unlicensed Texans; the contrast is even greater when only adults are counted).


  • According to licensing data maintained by the Texas Department of Public Safety, the rate of concealed handgun licensure among Texans age 18-23 was approximately 0.68% as of January 1, 2015.Scribd-2
