The Florida Legislature could trigger the end of the current on-campus gun policy, which bans firearms at school.

The state will debate in March whether to allow guns on campus, according to Tommy Baker, Student Chief of Staff.

Although the university is against allowing guns on campus, Student Government wants to make sure that's what students really want.

"It's very important to see student feedback," Baker said. "Whatever decision we make, we want to make the right one."

Student Government has been polling students and tabling this issue around campus, and they've found most students are against allowing the weapons at FGCU.

Those who support the legislation are usually seeking to protect their Second Amendment rights.
