COLORADO BAN ON CAMPUS CONCEALED WEAPONS DEFEATED!
By: John Hayward
The sponsor of a bill banning concealed weapons on college campuses plans to kill his measure Friday, Democrats have confirmed.
Four Democratic sources close to the matter said the bill’s sponsor, Rollie Heath, D-Boulder, plans to kill the bill and it won’t be brought up for debate on the Senate floor.
House Bill 1226 already cleared the House anda Senate committee earlier this week amid controversial comments made by a House Democrat, and one in the Senate, about rape on college campuses.
Republicans have hammered Democrats over the rape remarks, jeopardizing a bill that already was in trouble. Two Democratic senators had openly said they were against it, Republicans needed only one more Democratic to kill the measure.
