Some hope for college campuses

Oklahoma lawmakers OK concealed guns on campuses


Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY The state House agreed Thursday to allow people with specialized firearms training, such as military personnel, to carry concealed weapons on the state's college campuses.

The measure was approved 65-36, and now heads to the state Senate for a vote.

Introduced by Rep. Jason Murphey, R-Guthrie, the law would authorize active-duty military and National Guard and reserve personnel, honorably discharged veterans and others with firearms training certified by the Council on Law Enforcement Education who hold a state concealed weapons license to carry guns on college and university campuses.

The legislation is more narrow than Murphey's original proposal, which would have allowed anyone at least 21 years old with concealed handgun carrying rights to carry weapons on campus. That version was similar to a Utah law.

"This has to be the craziest thing I have ever seen," said Rep. Ray McCarter, D-Marlow, one of several lawmakers who said the measure is opposed by college administrators.

Supporters argued that the measure would make campuses safer by putting guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens.

Rep. Colby Schwartz, R-Yukon, said someone with a concealed weapon might be the only person in a classroom who can protect himself and others from an attacking gunman.

"When seconds matter the police are just minutes away," said Rep. Rex Duncan, R-Sand Springs

If they have to do this, open (NOT concealed) carry might be a better idea...(?)

What do you think?

Or is this just turning the place into another "OK corral"?


I'm not sure on this one.

I am all for open carry. this way you know who has the guns... On the other hand if the good guys are carrying openly and the bad guys are not (assume that the bad guys will NOT follow the rules) Wouldn't it just give the bad guys a real advantage if anything goes down? I change my mind concealed carry is best...

open Carry

I am all for the right to choose open carry or not. Personally, I believe open carrying gives away some tactical advantages. Also, I would not want it to be a distraction in class. Given the choice I would choose concealed everytime.
