LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - New Wisconsin legislation is proposing an expansion of the state's acceptable concealed carry locations.
The bill, proposed by Republican Representative Jesse Kremer of Kewaskum, would allow concealed carry permit holders to bring their weapons into college campus buildings. Kremer introduced a similar bill last year, but it did not get a hearing.
UW-La Crosse Chancellor Joe Gow says there is a lot to consider when it comes to weapons in campus buildings.
"What would the policy be as far as guns in the residence halls? What would the policy be as far as guns in the stadium? Or in the child care center? A campus is more than just classrooms, and so I hope legislators will think that out as they continue to pursue this,” said Chancellor Gow.
Gow also says he does not believe having more weapons on campus will make it a safer place.
