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.
