KU student government passes bill opposing concealed carry on campus

Perhaps you recall that KU's Student Senate was considering a bill that would announce its opposition to any legislation allowing concealed carry on campus.

Well, that bill passed last night, pretty easily. The margin was 46-8 with three students abstaining, per the minutes from the Senate's meeting Wednesday night.

Also according to the minutes, a couple of students spoke against the bill. (That is, they spoke against being against concealed carry, just to make sure you've got that straight.)

According to the bill, the Student Senate will notify Gov. Sam Brownback as well as a litany of state legislators about its opposition to on-campus concealed carry.

I am against being against the practice of sending your KU news tips to me. So send them to merickson@ljworld.com.
