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.

If the Arkansas thinks weapons on campus are going to make students less fearful then they don't know much about human nature. Are they really going to challenge their professors? As long as they are going down this path then lets make dueling legal in Arkansas and let everyone carry a concealed weapon. The NRA could supervise the duels.
