Alabama Bill Seeks Amendment On Campus Carry

posted on January 20, 2016

A House bill in Alabama is taking an interesting approach to concealed carry on college campuses: It would introduce an amendment to the state constitution that, if approved by voters, would institute campus carry in all higher learning facilities. “There are just not enough police officers to be everywhere, and this would allow you to protect yourself, heaven forbid something happen, but you would have the opportunity,” Rep. Mack Butler, R-Etowah County, who wrote the legislation, explained to WKRG. 

At this point, recognizing campus carry is the prerogative of schools in Alabama, and most have rules against it. “Every single one of these mass shootings, the target has been a gun-free zone, and my goal has been to remove as many of those zones as possible,” said Butler.
