Alaska Senate Committee Weighs Campus Carry Bill

posted on February 23, 2016

The Education Committee in the Alaska state senate heard testimony Tuesday regarding SB 174, which would remove restrictions for the carrying of concealed firearms on college campuses. According to the bill’s sponsor, Sen. Pete Kelly, R-Fairbanks, the current campus carry ban outlined by the University of Alaska’s Board of Regents infringes upon the Second Amendment rights of Alaskans. 

“Bad guys with guns are stopped by good guys with guns,” explained Kelly. “And if the university has made it so all the good guys can’t have guns, they are then at mercy of bad guys with the gun.” The University of Alaska opposes the bill, and the committee also heard testimony from the university’s president, Jim Johnsen. In response, Sen. Kelly promised to amend the bill to address some of the university’s objections.
