TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – A Republican senator has filed a proposal that would allow people to carry guns on the campuses of state colleges and universities.

Sen. Greg Evers filed the proposal on Thursday. The bill is identical to one filed earlier in the week by Rep. Greg Steube.

The proposal would allow people with concealed-weapons licenses to carry guns on campus.

It comes after an incident last month at Florida State University in which a gunman shot three people at the campus library before he was killed by police.

The bills will be considered during the 2015 legislative session.
