After crimes occur college students try to get support for carrying concealed handguns on campus

After recent assaults on University of Minnesota students, the campus College Republicans and a firearm instructors' group offered gun information Wednesday and circulated a petition aimed at allowing more people to carry guns on campus.
After four hours at an information table at Coffman Union, gun advocates garnered signatures from 29 students on a petition asking university regents and President Robert Bruininks to abolish policies that ban students, faculty and other staff from carrying guns. Guns, however, can be stored in vehicles.

State law allows anyone to carry a gun who is at least 21, has obtained firearms training and passed county sheriff background checks. But university policies bar students and staff from carrying guns on campus, as do policies for the Minnesota state college system. . . .
