With Concealed-Carry Deadline Looming, K-State Drafts New Gun Policy

posted on October 7, 2016

Kansas State University’s current weapons policy reads, “…the campus of each state university shall be weapons free.” After legislators voted in 2012 to allow concealed-carry in most public buildings, however, that policy’s days were numbered. With the four-year exemption granted to universities ending in July 2017, K-State has drafted a new policy that will give law-abiding gun owners the same rights on campus that they have elsewhere. 

While the new draft won’t be reviewed by the Board of Regents until later this month, some ivory-tower academics are already predicting doom and gloom. English professor Elizabeth Dodd called the policy a “dangerous experiment” and a “gamble,” and has decided to take her displeasure with the law out on her students: “I have an open-door policy. I am available to the university community,” Dodd said. “This will stop.” 

But many students support the law, including chemistry sophomore Rose Micke, who believes it will make K-State safer. “If there was an on-campus shooter, there’s more people that can bring them down as opposed to just campus security,” Micke said.
