Sen. Trent Garner (right) speaks Thursday against a bill by Senate President Pro Tempore Jonathan Dismang (left). Dismang’s bill would exclude the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and the State Hospital from the public places where a new law will allow concealed-weapon licensees to carry their weapons after undergoing training.

The ink is barely dry on a new law that will allow some concealed-carry permit holders to take their guns into many public places, and yet a bill that shot through the Senate on Thursday proposes to exempt some locations.

This goes to show that when you let a special interest group, namely the NRA, write a bill for you, you'll end up with a bad bill. This should have gone through a much more thorough process. Many of the "NRA provisions" are just plain dumb. They fit the NRA's agenda, but not the people's. Let's get the NRA out of the legislative process and back where they belong, appealing to legislators just like any other citizen.
...
"Collins said Thursday afternoon that he wants to take a look at the language of SB724 and Act 562, and he wants to review other issues, such as whether the concealed-weapon permit holders with extra training would be banned from publicly owned day cares, nursing schools and 'carrying while intoxicated.'" Really Collins? You were so bent to get this passed you didn't even think of things like this? What? Did the NRA not cue you in on the issues? Of course not. The NRA looks at guns like a crack dealer looks at crack.

The way that crime has gotten so out of control in Little Rock, this is the reason for more laxed CCL's. The People of this city are now charged with protecting ourselves, since the NAACP & BLM have made it impossible for law enforcement to shoot these thugs. RBear - I think the same way of NAACP & BLM that you think of the NRA! They are like crack dealers look at crack! They care NOTHING about black on black crime - only sticking it to the white people!

" It will kill the campus-carry bill we just passed" funny use of the word "kill", maybe less students and faculty will be killed, on-campus, just a thought.

dontgothere, a mind is a terrible thing to waste.

That is how the naacp survives, they sell force shields which make it impossible to shoot thugs [ I assume, that dont refers to black thugs] , contrary to what you see every day happening.

I have read the ancient books, several translations and see no where are certain places exempt from divine guidance and instruction of the NRA. With their knowledge straight from "THE" Deity, they for the sake of our souls tell us the one true way to salvation. Therefore I agree , I see no reason or logic which exempts sporting events, UAMS , jails or courtrooms from the benevolent concept of citizens carrying guns. If pistols can be used what reason keeps rifles and shotguns from enjoying a place in a well armed militia?

I'll put it this way , if Jason the dover wonder can carry, why shouldnt anyone be able to tote the note , anywhere and anytime?

DGT, "whitey gonna get his in the end." Sure, right. The difference is the NRA is peddling goods for the gun industry and the NAACP and BLM are peddling human rights and social justice (I know you conservatives hate that word). Yea, they're the "same."

RBear - if the NAACP & BLM care so much about "human rights & social justice", why don't they care about black on black crimes?

DGT, who says they don't? The only ones I've heard say that are right wingers who mischaracterize their actions. BTW, when's the last time you actually sat down with someone from BLM to find out what they are actually for? If not, then how do you know what they fight for other than listening to Rush or Sean?
