(KAIT/TALK BUSINESS & POLITICS) - A poll released Thursday showed that Arkansas voters largely support allowing faculty and staff to carry guns on a college campus while being split on whether or not university officials should make the decision on a local level.
According to a report from content partner Talk Business & Politics, the poll from Talk Business & Politics-Hendrix College noted 61% of those polled supported concealed carry by staff on college campuses. But 40% were in favor and 38% against, with 22% undecided on whether or not to allow a board of trustees to make the decision.
A bill from Rep. Charlie Collins, R-Fayetteville, House Bill 1249, would require each of the state's public colleges and universities to allow staff and faculty to carry concealed weapons on campus, Talk Business & Politics reported.
