01/27/15: Guns On College Campuses; Elayne Boosler; Florida's Sunday Supper Event

Melissa Ross

A Florida House committee approved a measure this week to allow students to carry guns and concealed weapons on the state’s college campuses. This controversial idea comes just months after a shooter injured three people at the Florida State University library. Supporters of allowing guns on campus say it would prevent more campus shootings like the FSU incident. Opponents argue more guns on campus will make students less safe. We discussed the issue with legal analyst and Florida Coastal School of Law professor Rod Sullivan.

Then comedian and animal rescue advocate Elayne Boosler joins us to preview her performances at the Jacksonville Comedy Club this week.

And we speak with 29 South chef Scotty Schwartz and Moxie Kitchen + Cocktails chef Tom Gray about this weekend's Florida's Sunday Supper event at the historic Marble Bank Building in downtown. This is part of the ongoing Legend Series, dining destination events happening at interesting spots around the First Coast.
