Who needs data?

An article from the Student Free Press on the bill to allow guns on campus... a pretty typical write-up, but this quote caught my eye:
“The safety and security of our students, faculty and staff is paramount among our priorities, said Hank Dye, Vice President for Public and Governmental Relations. “We agree with law enforcement professionals who say ‘guns on campus’ is a bad idea…Our campus security officers feel strongly that the introduction of firearms into that kind of mix hinders rather than helps in the safety equation.”
Oh wait, they feel strongly that guns would limit safety. As long as it is a strong feeling, I guess that is okay. It is a shame there isn't a method to test the validity of theories or some group that could help analyze data.
