Eliminate ‘rape culture’ by OKing conceal-carry on campuses

Perhaps OU feels its high tuition draws a ‘better’ class of student

To the Editor:

Whenever I read of OU's latest outrageous expenditures (the $1.2 million McDavis mansion*), my heart breaks for the many poor students whose tuition and fees pay for these lavish perks.

Three quarters of a MILLION... on Rolex watches, cars, art, booze etc. Not bad for the junior Democratic representative from Illinois!
