The gun-free campus open line

The 4th of July open line begins. Closing out:

* ROAR LYON ROAR: Lyon College is, my correspondent says, the 45th Arkansas college to decline the opportunity to allow staff members to carry concealed weapons on campus.

Colleges have until Aug. 16 to opt out of Rep. Charlie Collins' pistol-packing legislation.

According to my unofficial recordkeeper, these colleges have not been heard from:

Four-year

Arkansas Baptist College, Little Rock
Central Baptist College, Conway
Champion Baptist College, Hot Springs
Williams Baptist College, Walnut Ridge

Two-year

College of the Ouachitas, Malvern
Crowley's Ridge College, Paragould
Mid-South Community College, West Memphis
Rich Mountain Community College, Mena
Shorter College, North Little Rock

Corrections welcome.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
