LSU coach Les Miles’ response to Louisiana House Bill 27, which would allow anyone with a concealed weapons permit to carry a gun on Louisiana’s college campuses.

“I am concerned about this piece of legislation for reasons far greater than sports. Having worked on a college campus for most of my career, I know that firearms do not belong on campus. To allow firearms on campus would be to introduce an element of risk that could compromise all that is good about a university setting.

“College campuses should be about the exchange of ideas, the transfer of knowledge, and challenging discussions, not firearms and the dangers that they present.

“College campuses for a great majority of our history have been a safe haven for students and to allow firearms on our college campus will to some degree take away the innocence of what our campuses represent."
