Flash from David Goins at Fox 16:

The University of Arkansas Board of Trustees voted to opt out of Republican Rep. Charlie Collins' new law to allow college and university staff to carry concealed weapons on campus. The vote was unanimous and applies to all 11 UA campuses. Evie Blad of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette tweeted that campus leaders at the meeting applauded the vote.

Awaiting word on Arkansas State University Board today on same issue.

UPDATE: The ASU Board also voted unanimously against guns on its four campuses.
