A new gun law in North Carolina, which was approved by both the House and Senate and signed by Gov. Pat McCrory as House Bill 937, will now allow guns on school campuses. According to Macon County Schools attorney John Henning Jr., the bill, which is now G.S. 14-269.3, allows individuals with concealed-carry permits to bring their guns onto school campuses – from kindergarten to college – if they keep the weapons in a closed compartment in their locked vehicles.
"It is just crazy," said Henning Monday night. "It is a terrible idea and I don't care how pro-gun you are, it just doesn't make any sense."
School districts cannot make it illegal for individuals to bring guns to school campuses, but can create a policy that forbids such an action.
