GA Senate committee approves stun guns on college campuses

ATLANTA (AP) – Georgia college students may soon have another alternative to defend themselves on campus.

A Senate committee approved a bill Tuesday that would let students carry electroshock weapons, or stun guns, on college campuses. The vote came a day after the same committee approved a bill that would allow college students to carry a concealed firearm on campus.

Republican Rep. Buzz Brockway of Lawrenceville is sponsoring the bill. He says it would provide college students another option when thinking about self-defense on campus.

Anyone over 18 years old or any student enrolled in classes at a school would be able to carry a stun gun under the bill.

The bill could make it to the Senate floor this week for a vote.
