    Hb 750

    Looks like we have one bill introduced for CC on campus. Has 30 co authors so far. Contact all your reps if they are not on the list and push for support.

    This bill changes little. Any school can still pass regulations that prohibit carry, and nearly all will. Is this the best the CC people have? Public institutions should not legally be permitted to enact such regulations, period. Private institutions, of course, should be able to do as they see fit.

    This bill is pathetic.

    Only private or independent schools. State funded colleges may not, which includes almost all of them.

    (c)A private or independent institution of higher
    education in this state may
    , after consulting with students, staff,
    and faculty of the institution, adopt rules, regulations, or other
    provisions prohibiting license holders from carrying handguns on
    premises that are owned or operated by the institution and located
    on the campus of the institution.

    I see it's only schools of higher education.

    With all the high school gang bangers out there, I'd have no problem with teachers and administrators concealed carrying on high school grounds.

    And why should out youngest not be protected? Someday, sometime, some nut is going to go off in an elementary school. Already happened in Germany.

    Protect the children.
    What part of "shall not be infringed" do *they* not understand?

    Is this a duplicate of HB 86?

    It may have been introduced by more than one legislator, in which case it will be listed twice with 2 different numbers.

    Yeah, that's actually a very common occurrence. A lot of the bills I'm watching have had duplicates introduced.

    He's dead wrong. This bill hasn't even been voted on by the house, let alone reached the senate yet.

    Here's how the other campus bills are going;

    HB 86 - Left pending in House Homeland Security & Public Safety Committee
    SB 354 - Out of committee, awaiting senate vote
    HB 2178 - In Homeland Security & Public Safety Committee awaiting a hearing
    HB 750 - Out of committee, awaiting house vote
    HB 1167 - Left pending in House Homeland Security & Public Safety Committee
    HB 1356 - Left pending in House Homeland Security & Public Safety Committee
