OKLAHOMA CITY -- Lawmakers in Oklahoma are taking steps to allow people with specialized training to carry concealed weapons on college campuses.

A measure approved by the state house would authorize campus guns for people who have undergone special firearms training including members of the military and honorably discharged veterans.

Supporters argue the measure would make campuses safer by putting guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens, but given recent campus shootings around the nation, opponents have wasted no time registering objections.

The measure now goes to the Oklahoma Senate.
