End the Pepper Spray Ban at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University

Embry Riddle University’s current weapons policy shamefully deprives students of their right to access essential self-defense tools like pepper spray, deliberately exposing them to danger.
The callous blanket prohibition under Student Handbook Policy 11 blatantly ignores students’ urgent safety needs, demonstrating a complete disregard for their well-being.

Pepper spray stands as a universally acknowledged tool for self-defense, especially vital for individuals lacking physical strength. Yet, despite its recognized efficacy, Embry Riddle University arrogantly dismisses its importance, leaving students defenseless in the face of potential threats. By callously denying students the means to protect themselves, Embry Riddle University is not just failing to ensure a safe campus environment but actively endangering the lives of those it claims to serve.

We demand immediate action from Embry Riddle University to amend Student Handbook Policy 11 and explicitly safeguard the right to carry pepper spray on campus. The current policy not only fails to prioritize student safety but also leaves the door open for unjust punishment of individuals merely seeking to defend themselves against potential harm.
