When we have an active shooter, who are you going to call? Somebody with a gun. The advantage of campus-carry is hopefully someone with a gun will be 10 seconds away instead of 10 minutes.
From the legislature's web site:This bill adds a ninth exemption . . . for full-time employees of public higher education institutions who have a handgun permit and are carrying a handgun only on property owned, operated, or in use by the institution employing the employee.
You will need to read the amendments to get the full meaning of the bill.
One might ask if this bill relegates qualified adjunct faculty to second-class status. Next year, I believe the legislature should look at including them, and also qualified adult students.
