House Bill 1348, introduced by State Representative Duane DeKrey (R-14), will soon be heard on the Senate floor after moving out of the Senate Government and Veterans Affairs Committee with a recommendation of “do not pass.” HB 1348 originally would have allowed concealed carry permit holders to carry on university campuses in
HB 1348 now focuses on a storage problem for students who were forced to check their firearms into security "storage lockers" which have become full. The bill would allow students to store their guns in campus apartments and parking lots. The legislation does not affect campus dorms or fraternity/sorority houses. Even though HB 1348 has been changed, it does effectively address a storage problem that campuses across the state have been dealing with for many years.
