Republican lawmakers plan to re-introduce legislation that would let licensed gun owners carry concealed weapons in UW buildings.

In February 2016, a group of Republican lawmakers in Wisconsin proposed a bill to allow licensed gun owners to have a gun on school property, but it never received a hearing in the last session. 

As a new session approaches, Representative Jesse Kremer (R-Kewaskum) plans to re-introduce that bill, sparking debates at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and other campuses across the state. 

Supporters say the legislation was designed to keep people safe, while those opposed to the bill says that even with good intentions, the legislation would add extra safety risks.
