Measures to Broaden Gun-Carry Rights on College Campuses Falter

1 post in this topic

Bills hampered by university leaders’ resistance, even in gun-friendly states

A push to expand rights to carry guns on public-college campuses has largely fizzled.

Of the 15 “campus carry” bills introduced earlier this year, none has passed. Measures in 11 states have already effectively died, including in Florida, where gun-rights supporters had high hopes before two bills stalled before reaching floor votes.

And on Thursday, the Nevada senate defeated an 11th-hour move to tuck campus carry into a broader firearms measure, likely dooming the effort this year. Bills in at least two other states are expected to fail soon as well.

Attention is now focused on lawmakers in Texas, who could vote to expand campus carry soon, in the waning days of the legislative session. A win in Texas, which could come as early as next week, could help keep the effort alive and provide momentum heading into 2016.

The push to allow those with concealed-carry permits to carry firearms on campus picked up following the 2007 massacre at Virginia Tech University, in which 33 people, including the gunman, were killed. The National Rifle Association and other gun-rights groups say students should have had the ability to defend themselves with firearms.

Looks like it doesn't matter what level of "authority" it is, it's infested with gun control freaks. Fire them all!
