House Bill 937 would allow concealed carry permit holders to bring a gun onto a public community college or UNC system campus, though the weapon would have to remain locked in a vehicle.

Winston-Salem State University Police Chief Pat Norris is against the bill. Norris said the bill would increase car break-ins on campus and might encourage gun owners to take action if there’s a shooter on campus.

Meanwhile, many students feel having a gun on campus adds an extra layer of security.
