Pitt State Gun Control Vote

The student government association at another public university in Kansas has gone on record opposing concealed carry of firearms on campus.

The Student Senate at Pittsburg State University adopted that position on a vote of 22-16 Wednesday night. The university's administration had already stated its opposition to concealed carry. The Pittsburg Morning Sun reports the vote followed an informal survey that showed 53 percent of students at the southeastern Kansas university in favor of allowing concealed carry, with 44 percent opposed. All other student government organizations at Kansas regents institutions have approved resolutions opposing concealed weapons on their campuses.
