Question / Issue


Why didn’t the University ban handguns from classrooms?

Answer / Solution


Senate Bill 11 states that a university president has the authority to enact “reasonable rules and regulations” but the rules may not either “generally prohibit” or “have the effect of generally prohibiting” license holders from carrying concealed handguns on campus. Banning concealed handguns from classrooms would likely be considered a general prohibition and so would violate the law.
