Bill introduced to allow concealed carry guns on college campuses

North Carolina lawmakers filed House Bill 251 on Thursday, which would allow concealed-carry permit holders to carry their handguns on UNC-system universities and state community college, according to the Raleigh News & Observer.

The bill’s proponents say it will make campuses safer, but gun control proponents have concerns about guns in colleges. Becky Ceartas, executive director of the Durham-based North Carolinians Against Gun Violence, told the News & Observer he felt the legislation was “very dangerous.”

Earlier this session, 10 Republican legislators introduced House Bill 69. WNCN reports people the bill would enable people to put their pistols in pockets or purses without a permit.
