KU Moves One Step Closer To Campus Carry

posted on October 14, 2016

Last Friday, we reported that Kansas State University had drafted a new weapons policy in advance of the July 2017 deadline for implementing concealed carry. This week, the University of Kansas followed suit, submitting its own draft policy incorporating new concealed-carry guidelines to the state board of regents. 

The new guidelines won’t allow carry everywhere—for example, buildings “with adequate security measures at each public entrance” to prevent entry with firearms would be exempt. This would presumably include sports venues, but may extend to a limited number of other buildings. 

As in the case of K-State’s new policy, the draft hasn’t been without controversy. Anti-gunners have argued against KU’s policy by making spurious comparisons to hospitals, preschools and nuclear facilities. But logic seems to be firmly in the camp of those supporting Kansas’ law: “Personally, I was the victim of a violent crime when I lived on campus,” Bearing Arms contributor Beth Baumann said in a blog post. “A concealed-carry permit and a firearm would have armed me to protect myself. Instead, I was left defenseless in a gun-free zone.”
