Chancellor Vows to Oppose Guns on Campus (Jan 13, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma's chancellor of higher education today vowed to continue opposing any proposal to allow students to carry concealed weapons on campus.

Chancellor Glen Johnson made the comments Thursday during a budget presentation to state lawmakers. He said the state regents and officials with all 25 state colleges and universities oppose such a move, saying it creates a "more dangerous environment" on campuses.

Measures introduced in the last few legislative sessions have not been successful.

Republican state Rep. Jason Murphey of Guthrie introduced a bill two years ago, but said he likely won't this session because of an eight-bill limit imposed on House lawmakers. But Murphey said he expects a bill to be introduced in the Senate and that he'll sign on as a House sponsor.
