The Florida House of Representatives has overwhelmingly passed a campus carry bill.
Guns would be allowed on college campuses under a bill passed by the Florida House.
The House voted 80-37 to pass the bill after an hour-and-a-half of contentious debate Wednesday. Republicans said the bill would keep campuses safer while Democrats argued just the opposite.
The vote shows a basic difference in the philosophical outlook of the two main political parties in the United States.
Republicans, as a general rule, think that citizens should have more liberty and that people can generally be trusted to act responsibly in their best interests and in the interests of society at large. That is why they view having concealed carriers on campus as a positive step. They view it as having additional campus security in the event of crime (or in a much less likely scenario of a mass shooting or a terrorist attack).
