Campus guns proposal continues to stall in Arkansas
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Proposed legislation to allow the concealed carry of handguns on Arkansas college campuses continues to stall as two amendments to the measure failed to get out of a Senate committee.
The two proposed amendments to the gun measure were presented to the Senate Committee on Judiciary Tuesday.
The first amendment would remove a requirement that a person be at least 25 years old to carry a licensed concealed handgun on campus.
The second amendment would reduce the hours of training needed to be authorized to carry a concealed handgun on campus from 16 to eight hours.
The proposed legislation would have also expanded the places a concealed carry permit holder could have their weapon, including the state Capitol.
