College goers can now carry guns in Kansas

Students and professors will be legally allowed to carry concealed handguns onto college campuses in the American state of Kansas.The concealed carry law was enacted four years ago and applied to all public buildings, but colleges in the state were exempted until July of this year. The law is the latest in a series of legislative efforts in states around the country to address the issue of campus safety from potential shooters.
Some approaches tightened restrictions on guns while others made them more available with the goal of allowing potential targets of gun violence to defend themselves with their own weapons.
Kansas is joining Arkansas, Georgia and other states with laws that allow students campuses. California and South Carolina are among 16 states that ban the practice.
