Kansas Schools Prepare For Allowing Guns on Campus

KSAL StaffOctober 11, 2015

A mass shooting this month at an Oregon college added a sense of urgency for Kansas educators who are studying ways to comply with a law that will allow concealed guns on public university classes in their state.

The Personal and Family Protection Act approved by Kansas lawmakers in 2012 gave public universities a four-year exemption to start complying with the law. The act overrode local gun ordinances statewide and required concealed-carry permit holders to take their weapons into almost all public buildings.

The Wichita Eagle reports the Kansas Board of Regents is studying how to best implement the law.

Regents chairman Shane Bangerter says dormitories and sports stadiums pose the biggest issues because of all the entrances and the number of people who use them.
