California Bill Would Ban Right To Carry At Schools, Colleges

posted on May 16, 2015

Expressing alarm that California Right-to-Carry permits “are becoming more prevalent and easier to obtain”—the number of permit holders has increased to the apparently terrifying level of more than one-tenth of 1 percent of the state’s population—Democrat California state Sen. Lois Wolk has introduced legislation to ban the right to carry on all school grounds and college campuses.

Under California’s current Gun Free School Act, firearms are banned on campuses statewide, with an exemption for Right-to-Carry permit holders. Wolk’s legislation, SB 707, would end that exemption and ban firearms at college and university campuses, school apartment buildings, common areas and parking lots, as well as K-12 facilities—except, of course, for suicidal madmen bent on mass murder. To them, no law means anything, anyway.
