Because we just know our students are so mature.......

that nothing can possibly go wrong.

Another dumbass republican go-guns idea..................

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada Assemblywoman is trying to make it legal for concealed carry permit holders to carry their firearms on the state’s college campuses.

Republican Las Vegas Assemblywoman Michele Fiore introduced AB 143 during floor session Monday. The bill is also sponsored by 16 Assembly members and six senators.

The bill allows concealed permit holders to carry on Nevada higher education campuses, except for at campus sporting events with a seating capacity of 1,000 or more. It also authorizes campus police to inform permit holders of firearm educational opportunities.

Fiore says students should be able to protect themselves and keep their Second Amendment rights regardless of where they are. She adds that students taking night classes can be at risk because of an inadequate number of security guards.

1. I lived in Las Vegas for 30 years.

And I'm so glad I left.

Guns on a school campus where alcohol is being consumed is a recipe for tragedy. Somebody smarts off with the mouth and the next thing you know there's bloodshed. Just a dumb idea.

2. I teach at a NV higher ed institution

and if this passes I want the right to tell students who conceal carry that they need to check their gun at the door.

3. I feel for you.........

not only are the students often not as mature as they believe, but this is the time the extra stresses cause mental illnesses to begin.

I'm in Reno and my son goes to UNR - I hate the thought that this could pass.
