Current law requires the institution's president to approve people who are licensed to carry concealed weapons to do so on campus. SB 231 would eliminate the permission requirement. It passed the Senate on a 15-6 vote and now goes to the Assembly. "This would send a message to people who victimize in this area that someone could have a firearm to protect themselves," Sen. John Lee, D-North Las Vegas, said before the floor vote. Lee described current campus protection where students lock themselves in rooms and huddle in a corner if a shooter is loose as inadequate. "We have better systems than that to protect ourselves," he said. "This bill does not allow you as a concealed weapons holder to become part of the police force but it does allow you to protect yourself against an aggressor."

So wait... You understand the need for students to protect themselves... But you're against that need being met?
Secondly, your last post you said that you don't think it's smart to arm college student BECAUSE they are college students..
You are contradicting yourself.

I'm just stating my opinion that the need for a gun on campus is unnecessary.
I lived through the VT massacre so I understand the need for weapons on campus.
