Doesn't it seem odd that a state like Louisiana, which one might associate with the Deep South, seems to have more sense than Arizona or Florida?Legislation allowing concealed weapons on public university campuses thankfully was shot down again this week.
Rep Ernest Wooton, I-Belle Chasse and chairman of the Louisiana House's Criminal Justice Committee, has repeatedly attempted to pass this legislation, maintaining that it would improve an individual's chances for safety in a threatening environment.
That thought is well-intentioned, but the logic is faulty. No college campus needs students, faculty and staff wandering around packing guns, waiting for the next opportunity for a shoot-out.
This time, the legislative committee didn't even listen to testimony, silencing the bill on an 8-3 vote.
