Posted April 24, 2013

— Legislation requiring photo identification of voters and allowing people to carry concealed weapons in more places advance Wednesday in a busy legislative day.

The House approved its voter ID proposal, mostly along party lines, after weeks of gathering input from the public and experts from other states with similar requirements. The bill now heads to the Senate.

Meanwhile, a House committee passed legislation that would allow concealed weapons on college campuses and in bars and restaurants. A separate committee defeated an effort to repeal state subsidies to renewable energy firms, while a third committee debated proposed rules for people who are in the country illegally.

    Wow! That's all we need on college campuses...GUNS! Are youo kidding me? Dukefan1

    you will only be able to store them in your car while on campus.

    What does college students need with concealed weapons? This is crazy. You can't vote without ID but you can get all the guns you want. Killing is ok but voting without an ID is not...Geez free2bme

    This has nothing to do with NEED. College students already have conceal weapons. Just not on campus. The new law will only permit storage of guns in your car while you are on campus. That being a student, over 21, with a CCW can store his gun in his car while attending classes. He can not walk on campus or take the weapon into class... and no killing is not OK but if me or him...its gonna be him...if you want it to you I'm OK with that but dont push that on me. The law will also cover faculty, vendors visitor, etc...so not just students 21 years old or older. Best thing is read the laws before posting.

    Guns are already on Campus and all around it too, just illegally. If you’re a gang member, you don't care about the restriction. If you’re Concealed Carry Permit holder, (Student/Employee...etc.) you're not telling anyone. If this Bill passes it just means the CC Permit holders no longer have to worry about the prosecution which the gang-members (and Mass Murdering Cowards) aren’t worry about.
