98 Percent Of Poll Respondents Support Arkansas Campus Carry

posted on February 14, 2017

There’s no shortage of support for campus carry in the Natural State. Nearly 98 percent of readers responding to an unscientific online survey by The Madison County Record voted, “Yes, all colleges should allow permit holders to carry firearms.” That left a paltry 2 percent whose responses were split between “no,” “unsure/indifferent” and “Yes, but a college should be able to choose whether or not to allow firearms on campus.”

On Feb. 2, the state House overwhelmingly voted to allow faculty and staff with concealed handgun licenses to carry on campus. The proposal will next be heard in the Republican-controlled Senate.

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson has voiced his support for campus carry. "We'll continue to watch [the bill] through the legislative process, but, at this point, that's something that makes sense to me with that additional training requirement," said Hutchinson, referring to the provision that requires active shooter training before carrying on campus.
