Ten Republicans have joined House Democrats in narrowly defeating a proposal to permit concealed weapons on college campuses.
The Montana House failed Senate Bill 143 on a vote of 49-51 Tuesday. …
Opponents say only seven states allow concealed carry on campuses …
Republican Rep. Jeffrey Welborn said he voted against the proposal at the request of the parents of a Montana Tech student who was shot and killed by another student in 1982.
The House could reconsider the measure Wednesday.
Allowing guns on campus would be more dangerous than not. Firearm accidents and stupidity would far exceed those incidents where some student stops a crime.
Kleck and Gertz were wrong.
