Among the curious items in House Bill 1148 -- Gun Rights Amendment, is an exemption to the prohibition of firearms on college campuses, allowing for their use "on the Howell Woods Nature Center in Johnston County owned by Johnston Community College when used with the written permission" of the community college. Just what does it take to get this permission? Who knows about this? Who has received permission in the past? What is being hunted?
