LSU football coach Les Miles has put himself on the record concerning House Bill 27.

Last week in Louisiana, the House Committee on the Administration of Criminal Justice voted 9-6 to allow  those who have handgun permits to carry those weapons on college campuses.

Said Miles: "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."
