Cheers

To Hartwick College President Margaret Drugovich, for joining with other college and university leaders in support of gun-control legislation.

She signed an open letter by the College Presidents for Gun Safety, which included support for measures and issues related to background checks, mental health care, semi-automatic weapons, safety standards for storage and keeping guns inaccessible to children.

Drugovich made clear that this is not about political party, but about protecting the places of learning for our children and young adults.

In the wake the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., it is a smart move for school leaders to assess security measures, such as continuing the ban on weapons possession on college campuses.
