Nevada one step closer to getting rid of gun-free zones in colleges and government buildings

From the Las Vegas Review Journal:
A controversial bill that would allow people with concealed weapons permits to carry their guns on Nevada college campuses won approval in the Assembly on Monday and now goes to the Senate. 
The so called “campus carry” measure, Assembly Bill 148, is sponsored by Assemblywoman and gun rights advocate Michele Fiore, R-Las Vegas, along with many of her colleagues. 
The vote for passage was 24 to 15 with all but one Democrat, James Ohrenshall of Las Vegas, opposed. Three members were absent. . . . 
Washoe County Sheriff Chuck Allen is supporting the bill. 
Gov. Brian Sandoval has said he won’t take a position until and if a bill lands on his desk. 
According to the National Conference of State Legislatures in information dated from February 2015, 23 states let universities make the call on carrying concealed weapons, 20 ban weapons and seven, including Utah, Colorado and Idaho, allow firearms to be carried with some limitations. . . .
