Students at UW-Stevens Point want the legislature to exempt college campuses from the concealed weapons law if it were to go into effect. They believe that concealed weapons could make it quite dangerous for the university's unarmed campus law enforcement.
The UWSP student government recently passed a resolution that pushes to include a clause that exempts all college properties from allowing anyone to carry a gun. Meanwhile, local activists believe that the ban should be lifted.
“Most of the people in America feel that they are responsible for their own safety,” says National Rifle Association activist Buster Bachhuber.
Currently there are 45 states that permit the use of concealed weapons.
