The response from "Revolt:"
Hey Phillip, thanks for the question. That's a really hot-button issue around UT, especially with the legislation discussed recently. One of the important roles that the SGA Government Affairs committee takes on is as a lobbying organization on behalf of the UT student body. If students as a constituency want their government to transmit messages like this to state legislators in Nashville, it's SGA's role to do that. REVOLT believes that Government Affairs is one of the Student Services committees that is working well right now and has a relationship with state government.
We'd like to see SGA on the whole work more efficiently with local government, and we'd like to see better prioritizing of our police forces, so that students arming themselves might not seem imminently necessary.
