Reporters interview students on Concealed Carry proposal
Media outlets descended on campus earlier this week to solicit opinions on a proposal by two state legislators to loosen state law that prohibits concealed-carry permit holders from carrying weapons inside public university and college buildings. UW System President Ray Cross and System chancellors have expressed concern about the proposal. Among students, at least here at UW-Green Bay, sentiment is mixed.
Fox 11 reporter Bill Miston, in fact, talked to a student who is forming a concealed-carry advocacy group here.
Press-Gazette reporter Patti Zarling found most students and staff she talked to lining up against the proposal.
TV-2 had coverage.
Also, Wisconsin Public Radio’s news site quotes student government leaders skeptical of the proposal at Eau Claire, Stout and Milwaukee (although not Green Bay, even though the beautiful landscape photo accompanying the text is from our campus).
