News from the depth of Armed Arkansas. Remember SB115? It passed 89-0, now on the way to the Governor. The story can be read here. That’s one bill killed (HB1051), one passed (SB115), and one in the wings. Lets discuss that one.
Its HB1479, read it here. This allows employees of Public or Private colleges with a permit to carry on campus. Not students. Remember Virginia Tech? The only one armed was Cho, and look how that turned out. If a professor had been armed, BANG! Lives saved.
Here’s what we can do. Contact the House Education Committee. Here’s the link. Tell them to pass it to the Floor. After that, tell your Representative to vote for it. Let freedom ring.
