A state Senate bill allowing students, faculty and staff to carry concealed handguns on public college campuses was filed Monday with 19 senators as joint authors.
Current law allows those who hold a concealed handgun license to carry their weapons on campus grounds but not inside buildings. Attempts to broaden the law in previous legislative sessions have fallen short under fierce opposition from police chiefs and other law officers, university officials, teachers, parents and students.
