CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada Assemblywoman is trying to make it legal for concealed carry permit holders to carry their firearms on the state's college campuses.

Republican Las Vegas Assemblywoman Michele Fiore introduced AB 143 during floor session Monday. The bill is also sponsored by 16 Assembly members and six senators.

The bill allows concealed permit holders to carry on Nevada higher education campuses, except for at campus sporting events with a seating capacity of 1,000 or more. It also authorizes campus police to inform permit holders of firearm educational opportunities.

Fiore says students should be able to protect themselves and keep their Second Amendment rights regardless of where they are. She adds that students taking night classes can be at risk because of an inadequate number of security guards.

I agree with you USMC Retired. I still believe in the 2nd Amendment. Course I didn't go to war but I served 2 yrs in the USAF and the WA ANG for 8 yrs. Some people don't care how we got our freedom. It sure wasn't handed down on a silver platter. Wilson- I quite agree. The sickos won't know who's PACKING.

As a retired U. S. Marine I went to war twice to protect our Constitution and Bill of Rights against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Now there are domestic enemies of our Constitution that support laws that deny me my right that is guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment to that Constitution for which I risked my life.

This is an excellent proposal. It might be a good idea to look at removing the “Gun Free Zone” from County, City and State buildings as well. Gun free zones are an open invitation for “sick people” to go on a rampage. Permit holders are thoroughly vetted and will pose no danger!
