KSU Faculty Seek Halt of Concealed Gun Law

KSAL StaffDecember 3, 2015

Forty Kansas State University distinguished professors have signed a letter to the state Legislature, seeking a halt to plans to allow concealed weapons on campus.

The letter was posted to the university’s website Wednesday morning. The professors are asking the Legislature to grant universities “permanent relief” from the Kansas Personal and Family Protection Act.

The professors said that allowing concealed weapons would not prevent intentional shootings, but may lead to more suicides and accidental shootings.

The law set a schedule for opening public buildings to concealed carry of firearms, unless the building is secured with metal detectors and armed guards. State universities are scheduled to allow concealed weapons on campuses by July 1, 2017.

The school’s Board of Regents is trying to come up with a policy that complies with the law but minimizes gun danger on campus.
