The gun-free campus open line

Posted By on Wed, Jul 3, 2013 at 4:37 PM

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:


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


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.
