LITTLE ROCK (KFSM) — An Arkansas representative plans to file a bill next week that would require public universities and colleges to allow faculty and staff to carry handguns if they have a concealed carry permit.

Rep. Charlie Collins, R-Fayetteville, proposed a similar bill in 2013 that allowed college and university boards to vote to opt out of allowing their faculty and staff to carry a firearm. All colleges and universities in Arkansas voted to opt out.

If Collins’ new bill passes, colleges and universities will not have that option.

    Asa Hutchinson on msnbc talking about how he’s helped AR schools. Arkansas is rated 44th in US education ranking. Good job Asa.

    No worries; most liberal professors would rather be shot to death on principle than defend themselves with a concealed carry permit.
