Guns on campus: Storm edition


Here's an odd one from the Log Cabin Democrat in Conway. It seems that during Tuesday night's storms, many people sought shelter in the safe room of the Vilonia School District.

One was a 20-year-old Conway man wearing a bulletproof vest and carrying two rifle and two handguns. He was arrested. The guns alarmed a lot of the some 300 people seeking shelter, the police chief said. And the vest? A "little odd."

He was released from jail after posting a $2,500 bond. The newspaper doesn't list specific charges. Many contend Arkansas law allows open carry just about anywhere not otherwise prohibited, but schools are supposed to be gun-free except for authorized officers.
