CCUPCA Interviewed on California-Oregon Radio

CCUPCA Legislative Advocacy Chair Stan Skipworth appeared as a guest on the Jefferson Public Radio (NPR) morning program, “The Jefferson Exchange” to outline the purpose of California Senate Bill 707–signed into law by Governor Brown on October 10th–and the ongoing focus of California’s college and university police chiefs and campus safety directors to mitigate the opportunities for future gun-related violence on campuses.

Hosted by Geoffrey Riley and Emily Cureton, the interview was part of an hour-long segment focusing upon legislative activity designed to specifically restrict the carrying of concealed weapons on college and university campuses and bring greater effect to the California’s 1995 Gun Free School Zone Act.

The interview can be heard in its entirety here.
