Board Of Regents Wants Concealed Carry Study

KSAL StaffAugust 14, 2013
A law taking effect Monday allows people with concealed-carry permits to bring their guns into public buildings.

The Kansas Board of Regents wants an in-depth study of a new law that loosens restrictions on carrying concealed weapons into public buildings.

The regents indicated they would pursue the study during their annual retreat Tuesday.

The new law allows licensed concealed carry on public college campuses. But the regents have taken an immediate six-month exemption for universities, and could later seek an extension through 2017.

Some regents said the study would be helpful if the board decides to seek future exemptions in specific areas. Chairman Fred Logan says the regents need to examine if there are areas on campuses where concealed carry shouldn’t be allowed, such as at athletic events or in classrooms or certain laboratories.
