Get ready for Conceal and Carry
The Kansas state legislature passed the Personal and Family protection act in 2006 which essentially allows Kansas residents to conceal carry a fire arm. Now the parameters of that law have been expanded to allow individuals with a conceal carry permit to exercise their second amendment right in public institutions.
Fortunately, schools were given until July 2017 to come up with valid measures that would prepare the campus to accommodate individuals who conceal and carry. Measures have been taken place at almost every post-secondary institution for the July 2017 dead line when conceal and carry will officially hit college campuses.
The Student Governments on all campuses have been working to bring this to the attention to the student body’s so that all students have more of an understanding about the new policies and the changes in the law that are going to affect them.
Washburn University has been working on multiple different drafts of their own gun policy that will address guns on campus and create numerous safety measures to make sure that students that bring guns on campus do it responsibly.
A few highlights of the policy include:
· Students that live on campus must provide adequate storage device to store their weapon in.
· Students are required to have a holster in order to carry their gun on campus.
· Students who do not want to live with someone who will store a gun in the room do not have to live with that individual.
These highlights are key elements to the policy that will be drafted. Other details about the policy include proper ways to own a gun on campus, what position the hammer of a gun has to be in, how a bullet is kept in the chamber of specific models of guns and more.
With the new law allowing concern carry on college campus being put into affect July 2017 the only thing that these institutions can do now is create valid ways to create safe practices around the law. Conceal and Carry is coming to college campuses only thing left to do is prepare for it.
