Pulaski Tech continues to hold the line on guns

Posted By on Wed, Jun 8, 2016 at 11:03 AM

The Board of Pulaski Tech, the two-year college based in North Little Rock that is to merge into the UA System, has again voted to opt out of the law that would allow concealed carry on campus by permitted faculty members.

Rep. Charlie Collins has been endeavoring to fill campuses with guns, but so far has only been able to pass the opt-out bill, which requires college boards to vote each year to opt out, lest guns be allowed.

This was the fourth year the Pulaski Tech trustees voted unanimously to opt out. The gun toters picked up two votes on the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees recently, but still fell short of a majority. So far no public college in Arkanass  has voted for guns on campus.
