Kansas University Professors Argue Against Campus Carry

posted on December 2, 2016

A coalition of six professors at the University of Kansas are vowing to fight the law allowing concealed weapons on campus. 

The teachers claim allowing guns will only add danger, and will make firearms more accessible to students who may have suicidal thoughts. English professor Maryemma Graham argues, “A concealed-carry campus is anti-intellectual, anti-education, implicitly condoning violence in the name of safety … I always take my father’s advice. ‘If a law is bad,’ he used to say, ‘why would you knowingly follow it?’” 

However, the Kansas State Rifle Association, who supports the legislation, posted this message online this week: “The KSRA has worked with legislators in the past five years to bring (campus carry) to Kansas and we will fight to keep it so our students, campus guests, and faculty are not left defenseless and unable to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights.” The law is scheduled to take effect in July 2017.
