Assembly kills measure allowing concealed guns at colleges

Riley Snyder for the Associated Press reported today:

Nevada lawmakers have defeated a measure that would have allowed holders of concealed-weapon permits to bring guns onto college campuses and led to one elected official storming off the Assembly floor.

Assembly members voted 18-24 Thursday to defeat an amendment to SB175 that would have enacted the so-called campus carry law. Eight Republicans and 16 Democrats voted against the measure.
