Kansas State University Policy Would Allow Guns in All Buildings

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State University would allow concealed firearms in all building under guidelines it is developing for complying with a state law. The Manhattan Mercury reports that a university work group is planning a September 15 forum before submitting the guidelines to the Kansas Board of Regents for approval. Beginning in July 2017, the state's public universities must allow concealed weapons on campus in buildings that don't have security measures including metal detectors. The Kansas Board of Regents has directed universities to develop more detailed policies by the fall. Under Kansas State's proposed policy, no residence hall, classroom or other campus location would have the security measures that would allow a complete concealed carry prohibition. But concealed carry could be prohibited when temporary security measures are in place.
