New bill would pre-empt concealed-carry regulations devised by KU and other schools

The biggest part of this bill is removing the policy on condition 3 carry (no round in the chamber). Requiring carry like this only increasing the chances of a discharge. Accidental/Negligent discharges generally speaking happen when a firearm is being holstered or drawn. Requiring someone to change the condition of their weapon every time they move around campus only increases these opportunities. Not to mention there is no safe place to make these changes to condition. Where would they like this to take place? In parking lots? Pull over and do it in the street before entering campus? These just aren't reasonable options.

RadioShack closing doesn't have anything to do with the amount of commercial space in town. The entire chain is going under.

KU campus carry policy moves forward, but specific places where guns would be banned still forthcoming

Simple, they don't plan to enforce it. They will just use it to fire/expel someone for an ND.
