California Nixes Campus Carry, Shooting And Lawsuit Follow

posted on September 5, 2015

The California legislature approved a bill that would repeal the provision allowing those with a concealed-carry permit—obviously a small number of people in the Golden State—to have firearms on college campuses. While the bill has yet to be signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown, at least one organization is planning to sue if he does sign it. Firearms Policy Coalition President Brandon Combs said his group would file an injunction immediately.

Meanwhile, a shooting on the campus of Sacramento City College, leaving one dead and two injured, proves that campuses aren’t the safe havens many would portray them as. The number of students and faculty currently allowed to carry is already minimal; why does the state think that they should be made even more vulnerable?
