Kansas Considering New Policy for Campus Guns

KSAL StaffNovember 4, 2015

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Board of Regents is soliciting comments from state universities about a proposal to allow people to have concealed guns on their campuses but not carry the weapons openly.

A regents committee has drafted a proposed policy and the full board hopes to vote on it in December.

A 2013 state law says adults 21 and older who can carry concealed guns can bring them into public buildings unless those buildings have security measures such as metal detectors. The law allowed universities to exempt themselves until July 2017.

Under the proposed policy, each university must have a place for people to securely store their weapons. Each campus also must identify the buildings in which concealed weapons won’t be allowed.
