Florida Republican introduces bill to allow guns on Florida university campuses

Um, no. Is this the type of person who would qualify as a “Floridiot” or is this a case of simply being an all-purpose idiot who blends in seamlessly in the GOP?

The proposal comes in the wake of a mass shooting in Arizona and the accidental shooting death of a Florida State University student. The police chiefs of Florida’s state universities, including UF Police Chief Linda Stump, have come out in unanimous opposition to the measure.

“I don’t think you’re going to find anybody in higher education in law enforcement who is going to want guns on their campus,” Stump said.

State Sen. Greg Evers, R-Crestview, is proposing the change in a bill that would allow residents who have concealed weapons permits to openly carry those guns. The measure would also lift the state’s prohibition on having the weapons at colleges and universities, while leaving it in place for K-12 schools.

“I think it’s just a good idea that people be allowed to carry firearms wherever they feel the necessity to protect themselves,” Evers said.

Notice how the police are against such stupidity.
