Senate Bill 246 has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee. It ensures that law-abiding adults are not stripped of their right to self-defense when they cross an arbitrary boundary onto a college campus. Please contact committee members and ask them to support SB 246.
Senate Bill 246 allows law-abiding CHL holders to carry on the campus of a state institution of higher education. Current state law does not prohibit carrying of a defensive firearm on campus, but institution policy may lead to expulsion or termination of employment. Adults who are officially licensed to carry a firearm for self-defense should not be prevented from doing so just because they seek higher education.
Again, please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT SB 246.
