Discussion Topic: Carrying On Campus
By Dave Hurteau & Chad Love
Here’s the latest on a familiar topic, from The Arizona Republic:
Legislation that would allow people to carry guns on Arizona community-college or public-university campuses advanced Monday, 11 days after a gunman killed five people and himself in an Illinois university lecture hall.
Members of the Republican-led Senate Judiciary Committee passed the legislation along a party-line 4-3 vote.
Senate Bill 1214, which would allow concealed-weapons permit holders to carry a gun at community colleges and Arizona's three public universities, next heads to the Senate Rules Committee.
