NEW YORK, NY -- The Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence have launched a new website, www.armedcampuses.org, that lists the colleges and universities that allow individuals to carry loaded firearms on their campuses. The website is intended to be a resource for students and their parents as they make decisions regarding higher education.
Currently, 25 two- and four-year schools across the country allow the carrying of firearms on their premises (i.e., campus grounds, classrooms, dormitories, etc.).
These colleges and universities are located in the following four states: Utah, Colorado, Virginia and Michigan. www.armedcampuses.org provides detailed information about laws concerning the carrying of firearms each of these states.
Several states—including Texas and Arizona—are currently considering legislation that would force colleges to allow guns on campus. www.armedcampuses.org will be updated on a regular basis to reflect any changes in school policy.
