Wisconsin Lawmakers Want Guns Banned On College Campuses

posted on October 17, 2015

Under current law in Wisconsin, anyone with a concealed weapons permit may carry a firearm on the grounds of public colleges and universities. However, some institutions, such as UW-Madison, prohibit weapons inside campus buildings. 

Two Republican state legislators in Wisconsin introduced a bill Monday to eliminate that exception. “If there’s a shooting on the campus, I think you want more guns on the campus—because you want more bullets flying to actually stop whoever it is that has started that shooting,” said the bill’s sponsor, Rep. Jesse Kremer. 

Two days later, three Democrats introduced legislation to ban weapons on college campuses outright, making carrying a weapon anywhere on campus a Class I felony. If passed, the Democrats’ bill would make Wisconsin the 20th state to ban concealed weapons on college campuses. But in a gun-friendly legislature, it is unlikely to move forward.
