Campus gun bill won’t go away
Legislative leaders on both sides of the aisle are uneasy with the resurrection of a bill allowing students to carry concealed weapons on campus. But unfortunately, it’ll probably happen anyway. Rep. Jason Murphey, R-Guthrie, has said he’ll likely file a measure similar to the one that died last year. The amended version of that bill would have restricted the privilege to military veterans and to students who have gun training. At a State Chamber function this week, Democratic leaders in the House and Senate, and Republican leaders all said they opposed the measure. But, as House Minority Leader Danny Morgan said, “The political reality of it is it’s going to be difficult to stop if it’s pushed in that (state Capitol) building.” Here’s hoping Morgan’s wrong about that.
