CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- A Nevada Assembly committee chairman has effectively killed a bill that would have allowed people with concealed weapon permits to carry guns on Nevada's higher education campuses.

The move Friday prompted one of the measure's most vocal supporters to burst into tears. Amanda Collins was the victim of a 2007 rape on the University of Nevada, Reno campus.

Assembly Judiciary Committee Chairman Jason Frierson says the measure didn't have enough support to clear the 12-member committee.

Seven members of the committee told The Associated Press on Friday they would have voted in favor of it.

Collins says Frierson has blood on his hands.

Another bill that would have created civil liability for a seller of a gun that was used to harm someone else if no background check was performed was also scuttled Friday in the committee.
