Allow Tasers & Pepper Spray for Self Defense in Louisiana

In Louisiana, it is currently legal to carry tasers & pepper aerosol sprays.

In the University of New Orleans Weapons Policy AP-SA-04.3 it is stated “pursuant to Louisiana Law Revised Statute 14:95.2(A) carrying a firearm or dangerous weapon by a student [Reference AP-AA-38] or non-student on school property, at a school sponsored function or affiliated function, or in a firearm-free zone is unlawful and shall be defined as possession of any firearm or dangerous weapon, on one’s person, at any time while on a school campus, on school transportation, or at any school sponsored function in a specific designated area including but not limited to athletic competitions, dances, parties or any extracurricular activities or within one thousand feet of any school campus

According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, 1 in every 5 women and 1 in every 16 men are sexually assaulted at college.

Students should be allowed to carry the tools necessary to protect themselves should dangerous situations arise. I hereby petition President Kathy Johnson and the Administration at the University of New Orleans to amend campus policy and allow the student body at the age of 18 or older to carry Tasers & pepper aerosol spray for purposes of self-defense.
