Campus Gun Law Prompts Debate

KSAL StaffNovember 27, 2015

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — University students in Kansas are starting to talk about a day in the not-too-distant future when anyone over 21 who legally owns a gun will be allowed to carry it onto campuses across the state.

The Wichita Eagle reported legislation passed in 2012 required concealed-carry permit holders to be allowed to carry their weapons in almost all public buildings. Earlier this year, the Legislature revoked the permit requirement. Now, anyone who can lawfully own a gun to carry it loaded and hidden without a permit or training.

Security measures, such as metal detectors, are now required for public agencies to ban guns in particular buildings.

The Legislature allowed universities to keep banning guns until July 1st, 2017. Kansas Board of Regents and student leaders are discussing what happens next.
