Campus carry question: What about K-12 schools on college campuses?

Posted By on Wed, Feb 22, 2017 at 10:03 AM

Here's a question posed in Little Rock about the college campus carry bill that sponsor Rep. Charlie Collins so far has not answered.

State law still prohibits weapons on K-12 school campuses. UALR, which will be covered by the campus carry bill (now expanded to let anyone over 25 — staff, student, public at large — carry concealed weapons on campus with the proper permit). Does this bill override the prohibition on K-12 campuses, such as the eStem charter school that will be sharing the UALR campus and building?

Happy thought: Could UALR claim exemption from campus carry BECAUSE of eStem?

    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.
