Under California's previous Gun-Free School Zone law, the concealed-carry people were exempted. 

The governor's signature came a week after the Umpqua Community College shooting in Oregon, but the bill passed before the event. 

The California College and University Police Chiefs Association lobbied for the change. 

CCUPCA Legislative Advocacy Activities Chair Stan Skipworth, himself a campus police chief at Claremont College, visits with the rationale.
