College gun bill

Via presser from email:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A House subcommittee has killed a proposal to allow faculty and staff at public Tennessee colleges to carry handguns on campus.

The proposal sponsored by Rep. Stacey Campfield, a Knoxville Republican, died for lack of a second to a motion to consider the bill in the House Criminal Practice Subcommittee on Wednesday.

Campfield said his proposal would have allowed colleges to opt out if they publicly guaranteed students’ safety.

College campuses are currently covered under a general ban on guns on school grounds. Only law enforcement officers or members of the military can come onto a campus armed.

The panel also rejected another Campfield proposal to allow retired members of military and ROTC cadets to carry handguns on campus.

Presser is a bit misleading since the bill specifies those that can carry a handgun lawfully may do so. Not all faculty and staff.

    These were bad bills, as they were written such that the requirements to carry on campus wouldve been nigh impossible to achieve.
