Bill would allow guns on college campus

State Rep. Ernest Wooton fulfilled a pledge this week and reintroduced a bill that would allow concealed weapons on college campuses in Louisiana.

The Republican lawmaker and former Plaquemines Parish sheriff brought a similar bill to the legislature last year, but had to abandon it because of overwhelming opposition from public and private colleges, police officials and people in general. He vowed to bring the proposal back every year that he serves in the legislature.

Times Picayune reporter Ed Anderson has the story here.
