As expected, the Kansas Board of Regents this (WED) afternoon unanimously approved policies for conceal and carry on state college campuses. A new state law allowing concealed guns goes into effect next July. The law allows schools to ban weapons from some areas if there are metal detectors and guards. Board of Regents Chair Zoe Newton suggested schools may keep weapons out of sporting events, which is something universities would have to appeal to the Board of Regents to approve.
That’s because the Regents must approve any plan to ban weapons from certain buildings. All of this will come up in the next session of the Kansas Legislature. It’s expected there will be a move to repeal the law or delay it.
