University Of Alaska Concealed-Carry Bill Passes Senate

posted on April 9, 2016

This week a bill was approved by the Alaska Senate allowing the right to carry on University of Alaska campuses. Republican Sen. Pete Kelly, the sponsor of the bill, told a local CBS affiliate, “The policy of the University of Alaska is to say, OK, concealed carry is available to the rest of the state, but not on our campus. But of course we have seen that declaring an area a gun-free zone and achieving safety are not connected in any way.” 

Of course, a University of Alaska student body president appeared frustrated by the vote, stating she would feel less safe on campus. Should the bill pass, it would make Alaska the tenth state to allow concealed carry on campus, joining Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin.
