GORHAM — A bill that would allow guns on the campuses of Maine’s public colleges and universities is drawing fire.
Rep. Richard Cebra, R-Naples, presented LD 1370, which is aimed at enhancing campus safety, according to a printed description about the bill.
The measure would impact the University of Southern Maine, with campuses in Gorham, Lewiston-Auburn, and Portland, as well as Southern Maine Community College in South Portland. The measure would not apply to private colleges, such as St. Joseph’s in Standish.
Cebra did not respond to a request through the Maine House Republican Office for a telephone interview.
