INDIANAPOLIS (WAVE) - An Indiana lawmaker said he wants to prevent any state-supported college or university from banning guns on campus.

Republican State Senator Jim Banks is introducing a bill where public college students would be able to have guns at school for personal protection.

Banks said his bill was not prompted by the December shooting massacre in Newtown, Connecticut or the deadly shootings at Virginia Tech in 2007.
