Alabama Lawmaker Vows to Get Rid of all College Gun-Free Zones in the State

According to a campus carry group in Alabama, students are technically permitted to carry on public university campuses. If they’re caught, the school will expel them, but they’re not going to be imprisoned, because it’s not against the law. The universities have rules that must be followed as conditions of attendance.

But one Alabama representative wants to eliminate these gun-free zones. Private universities would still be able to make whatever rules they want on firearms, but public universities would have to allow concealed carry under this proposed legislation. Campus Reform reported:

Representative Mack Butler (R), who is also an Alabama police officer, will defend his bill when the legislative body reconvenes in February. Butler framed the bill as a Constitutional Amendment so that, if passed, it would then likely appear on the November ballot in Alabama. Butler told Yellow Hammer News he strategically crafted the bill as an Amendment to the Constitution of Alabama so that its fate will be in the hands of voters.
