Cowley College to Keep Ban on Concealed Weapons

KSAL StaffMay 28, 2013
Cowley College in Winfield will continue banning concealed weapons inside its buildings and residence halls as officials study how to implement a new Kansas law.

Cowley College in Winfield will continue banning concealed weapons inside its buildings and residence halls as officials study how to implement a new Kansas law.

The law taking effect July 1 prohibits most public entities from banning concealed firearms in their buildings unless the buildings have adequate security. But it also lets public universities and junior colleges such as Cowley exempt themselves for four years.

Trustees of Cowley College approved such an exemption last week.

Interim college president Tony Crouch said the board might not use the entire exemption but wants to study whether to arm security guards and even create a fully commissioned police force. Crouch said those moves would have policy and budget implications that need to be examined.
