UPDATE: Buzzfeed and others mischaracterize what happened with Taylor Woolrich’s op-ed. See discussion here.
ORIGINAL: This is some of the news coverage that was obtained from the Students for Concealed Carry Convention that the Crime Prevention Research Center organized and funded. Taylor Woolrich has a very powerful op-ed at Fox News that starts this way:
Over the last four years, I have lived with the constant threat from a stalker – a stalker who is now in jail for the third time for violating a restraining order.
Here is the first part of the story that was the lead up at Fox News:
A 20-year-old Dartmouth student says she may have to give up her Ivy League dream and drop out of school because the prestigious college won’t allow her to carry a gun — to protect herself against a predator.
During the Students for Concealed Carry conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., Dartmouth student Taylor Woolrich shared her terrifying story of being stalked for years by a man 47 years her senior.
Here are some pictures from the presentations at the National Press Club
