WINFIELD, Kan. (AP) _ Cowley College in Winfield will continue banning concealed weapons inside its buildings and residence halls officials study how to implement a new Kansas law.
The law taking effect July 1 prohibits most public entities from banning concealed firearms in their buildings unless the buildings have adequate security. But it also lets public universities and junior colleges such as Cowley exempt themselves for four years.
The Winfield Daily Courier reports (http://bit.ly/12T1Sf7 ) trustees of Cowley College recently approved such an exemption last week.
Interim college president Tony Crouch said the board might not use the entire exemption but wants to study whether to arm security guards and even create a fully commissioned police force. Crouch said those moves would have policy and budget implications that need to be examined.
