Arkansas Representatives Pass Bill on Concealed Guns
Faculty and staff members in Arkansas would be allowed to carry concealed handguns on the state's college campuses under a measure approved on Friday. The Arkansas State House voted 70 to 11 to allow colleges and universities to decide themselves whether to allow concealed weapons on their campuses. The bill has advanced to the state Senate, which is expected to be approved. Discussion of gun control and gun rights has dominated public debate in the U.S. since a gunman shot dead 26 people at a Connecticut elementary school in December.
