Kansas college campuses brace for concealed guns under law

Associated Press - July 1, 2017 10:57 pm

A Kansas law that allows concealed guns on state university and college campuses beginning Saturday has resulted in a flurry of new policies, fact sheets, online guides and videos about the handling of weapons.

A Kansas law that allows concealed guns on state university and college campuses beginning Saturday has resulted in a flurry of new policies, fact sheets, online guides and videos about the handling of weapons.

Administrators say they can’t predict how many people will carry concealed weapons on campuses or how many complaints their police might receive about potential violations of the keep-weapons-hidden policies.

For example, administrators are telling students that if they keep a handgun in a backpack, the backpack has to stay with them if they’re called to the front of the class to answer a question.

The law allows people 21 or older to carry concealed weapons on campus and into buildings that don’t have adequate security such as metal detectors and armed guards.

“Brace” isn’t really a fair term. Back when concealed carry first became legal the naysayers were predicting daily bloodbaths in the street. Other than a slight reduction in violent crime, nothing happened. There are no daily, weekly, or even monthly headlines about people misusing lawful concealed weapons. The negative publicity surrounding firearms is mostly stirred up by a liberal news media seeking to boost their ratings. Back when the steam locomotive was invented, critics said it was impossible for humans to travel at the breathtaking speed of 20mph as the air would be ripped out of their lungs, suffocating the passengers. It’s refreshing to see Kansas college campi have taken a step forward by banning “gun-free zones”. The only proven antidote for a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
