JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri lawmakers are considering legislation that would allow people to carry concealed guns onto public buses and city trains, the Columbia Daily Tribune reports.

The bill by is the latest legislative effort to expand where people can carry firearms. In addition to the public transit proposals — which failed last year in both chambers — lawmakers also are considering whether to require colleges and universities to allow concealed weapons on campuses.
