A bill that would possibly allow guns to be carried on college campuses could stir up discussion in Richmond next year.
Lobbyists say it would keep students safer, but Virginia State Senator Creigh Deeds says it's a decision best left to school leaders.
The State Agency Preemption Bill would allow the General Assembly to set firearm regulations for state agencies, including universities. Right now, boards of visitors at those institutions make the rules.
