15 months later, just 1 violation of KU gun policy

November 25, 2018

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — More than a year after the University of Kansas adopted a policy allowing concealed guns on campus, only one gun-relation violation has been reported.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the sole violation was minor enough that it was corrected without disciplinary action. The violation was for carrying a gun inappropriately.

The policy was enacted in July 2017. In response to a Journal-World request, the university cited just the single violation that occurred Oct. 2 when a student was carrying a gun in the visible mesh part of a backpack, in violation of the provision that it be concealed from view.

A faculty member reported the incident, and the student corrected the problem.
