Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback says he’s not second-guessing a new state law that would require the state’s college campuses to allow concealed weapons.
The Republican told the Lawrence Journal-World that the law is in accordance with the Constitution’s Second Amendment’s right to bear arms.
In 2013, Kansas lawmakers passed and Brownback signed a bill mandating that concealed weapons be allowed in nearly all public buildings unless adequate security is in place to prevent anyone from bringing in a weapon.
Public colleges and universities were given until 2017 to come into compliance with that law.
Never miss a local story.
The University of Kansas’ chancellor and 70 of that school’s distinguished professors publicly have spoken out against the law.
