New California Law Bans Concealed Carry on Campus

New California Law Bans Concealed Carry on Campus

On October 17th, California Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation that expanded California’s existing ban on campus concealed carry.  The new law is among the most stringent in the nation.

Senate Bill 707 was authored by Se. Lois Wolk (D-Davis), strengthened the existing restrictions on campus carry by banning concealed weapons on school, college, and university campuses. The new law retained existing restrictions on firearms with 1,000 feet of a school campus.  Active and retired law enforcement officers are exempted from both.

Senate Bill 707 was approved last month, with near-unanimous support from California’s Democratic legislators. Republics were in the main opposed to the bill. Gov. Brown signed the bill without public comment.

In passing the new law, California joins the ranks of states which ban campus carry. Currently, 19 states carry such restrictions, while CCWs on campus remain legal in eight states.  Senate Bill 707 was endorsed by the California College and University Police Chiefs Association.

The role of firearms on campus is part of a national discussion sparked by a number of high profile school shootings. What effect California’s law will have on campus safety remains to be determined.

    I hope Governor Brown and the California legislature remember to inform the nutcases, thugs, and gangbangers who have purchased black-market firearms with intent to commit mayhem that they CANNOT take any firearm onto any school grounds or college campus.

      Absolutely! You see the picture of the sign–which is actually a powerful warding. As anyone knows, nobody intent on killing a bunch of unarmed students and faculty and then ending their own life can physically pass the enchanted portals with the magical signs and the portentous incantation. As soon as they pass through, they will immediately fall into a coma from which only a healing kiss from Jerry Brown can awake them. Such is the fantasy world of the progressive left.

    A gun free zone is nothing other than a killing field. We have so many examples of that. It is madness to think that another silly “gun free zone” law will prevent a suicidal, paranoid, attention starved “beta” with a terminal inferiority complex from walking in armed to the teeth and killing, say, about 10 innocent law-abiding folks before the cops can take him out. Of course, that is to be expected in the “Granola State” where flakes and nuts predominate. The only gun free zone that I believe is actually free of guns is the one between the TSA scanners. In the commercial airliner I only worry about bombs and plastic/ceramic knives. Everyplace else I feel much safer if law-abiding, courageous, and responsible citizens are well armed.

  • Sounds like a good reason to have your kids take online classes. I predict the criminals will begin targeting school campuses in California now that they know the people there cannot shoot back.
