KU Can’t Ban Concealed Guns in Sensitive Areas

KSAL StaffOctober 9, 2016

The University of Kansas’ chancellor knows firing a gun on campus areas with pressurized gas cylinders, rocket fuel and other combustibles might be disastrous. But she says the school can’t ban guns in such places.

State-run universities in Kansas must begin allowing concealed weapons onto campuses next July. Schools must submit proposed policies to the governing Kansas Board of Regents by October.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little told the University Senate on Thursday there are high-security labs and other campus areas where shooting a gun would be dangerous. But she says the state’s attorney general has told the school it can’t make those places exceptions to state law.
