UCA, Hendrix opt out of new campus gun law

Posted By on Fri, May 3, 2013 at 11:51 AM

The University of Central Arkansas Board of Trustees voted this morning to opt out of the new state law that allows concealed guns to be carried on campus. The law, by Republican Rep. Charlie Collins, passed with the provision that governing bodies could choose to continue no-gun policies.

The Conway Log Cabin Democrat reports.

UPDATE: A friend e-mails me to say that the Hendrix College Trustees took a similar vote today.

The University of Arkansas Board of Trustees is expected to take up the issue May 23, a spokesman said.
