Concealed carry will be allowed on all public college and university campuses in the state of Kansas beginning July 1 – including all three of Kansas City Kansas Community College’s campuses.

Concealed carry will be allowed on all public college and university campuses in the state of Kansas beginning July 1 – including all three of Kansas City Kansas Community College’s campuses.

In 2012, the Kansas Legislature passed the Personal and Family Protection Act. This act gave citizens in the state the right to carry guns without a specific permit for conceal and carry. The same law also included a four-year extension for all colleges and universities, which is now set to expire. The law applies to all regent universities such as the University of Kansas and Kansas State University as well as all community colleges.

In accordance with the law, KCKCC has developed a Conceal Carry Policy. Anyone 21-years-old and older and with no prior record is allowed to carry a handgun anywhere on campus – except where temporary Adequate Security Measures are in place. These areas will be designated with signage. In addition, handguns may be stored in a private, locked vehicle, if the handgun is secured in a nonvisible location. A handgun may not be stored in an office, work area or any college locker or desk.

To read the policy in its entirety, visit http://www.kckcc.edu/conceal-carry. KCKCC has also produced a video explaining the policy further. It can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOStLKZ4TlY.
