Political Scientist and college professor tackles guns on campus issue


Two gun bills are moving through the state legislature and appear poised to pass. One would allow people who lawfully own a firearm to open carry that weapon with or without a concealed carry permit during the first 48-hours of a mandatory evacuation.

The other measure would allow students and faculty to carry guns on state college campuses.

While both measures are enjoying Republican support in the conservative legislature, there has been huge push back from people favoring what they see as common sense gun legislation.

Eckerd College professor of political science Dr. Tony Brunello opposes the guns on campus measure. He answers questions about the bill and other gun-related measures.
