Discussion: Concealed Carry at University of Arkansas


A summer panel discussion on a new state law in Arkansas allowed holders of “enhanced” concealed weapon permits to carry weapons on most parts of most college and university campuses was summarized in “Guns-On-Campus Information Session Addresses Safety Concerns” in the campus newspaper Arkansas Traveler. It notes:

About 55 people, including UA professors and officials, attended an information session Aug. 15 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Fayetteville regarding Act 562, the law that requires Arkansas public colleges to allow people to carry concealed handguns, said Steve Boss, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees member and UA geoscience professor.
