Stun Guns, Guns to be Allowed on Campuses

KSAL StaffDecember 14, 2016

The Kansas Board of Regents approved policies that detail how the state’s six public universities will implement a state law allowing concealed handguns on campuses beginning next year.

The regents approved the policies with little discussion Wednesday.

Starting in July, the universities will be required to allow anyone 21 or older to have concealed handguns on campus in buildings that don’t have security measures, such as metal detectors. The security measures generally are considered too expensive for most campus buildings, meaning concealed carry will be allowed in nearly all buildings on the campuses. Stun guns – but not the more powerful Tasers – also will be allowed.

The universities can later ask the regents for permission to permanently or temporarily add security measure to prohibit concealed weapons at specific venues.
