ATLANTA (WXIA) -- Georgia Tech -- a campus set right in the heart of Midtown near a neighborhood with a troubled past. And with that, comes the realities of big city life - crime.
The latest major crime came just Sunday night. A student was robbed and beaten while walking to his off-campus home at around 2 a.m.
One group now says they have the answer.
The Students for Concealed Carry on Campus believe students should be allowed to pack a gun to protect themselves.
"Bad guys won't bring weapons on campus if they know that we have weapons to defend ourselves with," said Andrew Mullis. "I know that I've had to walk from the library by myself several times, and I know that there's a high risk of me getting jumped any of those times. I mean, the bad guys don't need laws to bring guns on campus. We do."
But not all students agree.
