A bill that would allow concealed weapons permit holders to carry guns on state university campuses is advancing in the Legislature.
The Senate Criminal Justice Committee voted 3-2 on Wednesday in favor of the bill.
The vote came after testimony from people with strong opinions on both sides of the issue.
Opponents said allowing guns in an atmosphere that is often stressful is a mistake. They also said campuses are among the safest places in the country, so there's no need to add guns.
