A small group of Senators derailed an important Second Amendment bill that was passed by the House by a 63-3 margin. House Bill 1261 was narrowly defeated in the Senate 14-17, but a procedural move is likely to resurrect the issue under a different bill number.
HB1261 would prevent universities from passing regulations that infringe on a law-abiding citizen’s Right-to-Carry if a person is complying with existing state laws.
Please contact your State Senator and respectfully urge him or her to support the right of concealed carry permit holders to carry a firearm for self-defense while on state university property. Contact information for your State Senator can be found here.
