Gun law in effect Oct. 1 brings firearms to campuses
House Bill 937 signed into law by Gov. Pat McCrory in late July amended state firearm laws, including provisions for guns on campuses. The bill will allow persons with concealed carry handgun permits to bring guns on school campuses. That includes events on campus, such as concerts or football games. A press release from East Carolina University notes firearms on campus must be in a locked container attached to a vehicle. A gun in a glove box of a locked vehicle would be compliant, but a gun visible in a locked vehicle would not. Concealed carry handgun permit holders are not allowed to assist law enforcement under the law. I’m George Olsen.
