Louisiana House Bill 199 Approved
"This is not about students. It's about concealed handgun holders on college campuses," Representative Wooton said, "Most of this discomfort is caused when you don't know anything about handguns or weapons. This permit law requires that you be totally familiar with your weapon, have the ability to use your weapon and qualify with the weapon."
"As a female who lives alone, I am forced to recognize that if it came down to it in a physical altercation between myself and a male, I'm toast," said Elizabeth Cook, member of the Students for Concealed Carry on Campus LSU chapter and Paul M. Hebert Law Center student, "I can't protect myself. Give me the opportunity to protect myself."
Hopefully, thousands of coeds will soon have that basic human right. House Bill 199 now goes to the Louisiana House of Representatives for debate.
