    Ark. lawmaker tries for concealed-carry changes

    Campus parking lots in the news.
    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas legislators face an interesting dilemma: Leave their guns at home or park their cars off the Capitol's 20-acre campus.

    A law that prohibits weapons from most publicly owned buildings in the state - and their parking lots - is making a former Olympic shooter leave his guns at home when using his coveted spot adjacent to the Capitol.

    Representative Randy Stewart, a member of the 1980 and 1984 Olympic teams, wants to see the law changed. He said he and some colleagues must choose between their prime parking spaces and keeping a gun in their locked cars and trucks. His bill, introduced Wednesday, would also exempt parking lots at colleges.

    Stewart, a Kirby Democrat, is an instructor in concealed weapons classes. His bill would grant the exemption to all gun owners who possess a valid concealed weapons license, not just legislators.

    Officials at the Capitol reviewed safety procedures after the death of Democratic Party Chairman Bill Gwatney, who was shot to death in his office two blocks from the Capitol. State Capitol Police Chief Darrell Hedden declined to comment on Stewart's bill, and the secretary of state's office says it was still reviewing the bill and had no immediate comment.

    Thanks RAMROD!! I'll keep an eye on this. I hope it will pass with flying colors. Meanwhile I'm checking with ARCCA to see if this info is on their website.

    I'm glad to see that he wants it to apply to everyone, not just legislators. So many legislators want one set of rules for them and a different, more restrictive set for the common people. I am surprised that in Arkansas, the poll currently is 67% against allowing firearms in cars on college parking lots. The thinking process of never ceases to amaze me.

    Yeah, I wouldn't have expected that in Arkansas (the poll that is - I voted yes obviously)... Hope the bill passes.

    Just voted. We are behind . Hopefully as people become aware of the poll the numbers will change.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    I voted, but we definitely need more people voting here.

    Also, I am not familiar with the location of the Capitol building in AR state... is it on a college campus? Seems like we're talking about two different things here.

    The Capitol building is in downtown Little Rock. Arkansas State is a college in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Two different area's of the state. I agree, everyone needs to hit the poll for us if they can. Thanks everyone!!!

    Inaccurately represented by the press again. Why am I not surprised. I voted "Yes" by the way.

    It makes me wonder if the wording was changed, or folks just didn't understand the issue. Some of us have seen those sites that change things once there is a defined majority already voted. Not implying they would, but it could happen.
