Az's colleges would pay big price for guns on campuses

Universities could spend as much as $10M to keep schools gun-free

If Arizona's Legislature approves a bill allowing concealed weapons on campuses, university and community college presidents who want to keep guns out of their classrooms will have to pay a hefty price. And that price tag could reach up to $10 million for Arizona's three public universities.

What is the point of being able to bring a gun on campus if you have to check it at the door?

@justsayin apparently it will only enrich the coffers of the gun industry, not too surprising since it is one of the heaviest lobbied industries.  since these schools will pay millions of dollars to install the lockers, that cost will eventually be put back on the people in the form of tuition and tax increases.  all the while, it doesn’t address the issue of safety at all.

There will be a forum at the University of Arizona to discuss the gun legislation. This Thursday, March 1st, at noon. It will be on the Mall on the main stage. See SAGE on Facebok for more.
