Razorbacks get your guns

Posted By on Tue, Jan 23, 2018 at 8:17 AM

The University of Arkansas announces a campus forum to talk about the advent of concealed weapons on campus once a new licensing provision established in a 2017 law is in place. (Though remember, there are gun advocates who contend no license is necessary to carry a weapon openly or in concealment in Arkansas.)

The University of Arkansas will hold a public forum to discuss implementation of the new Arkansas concealed-carry law and answer questions from the campus community.

What: Campus concealed-carry forum

When: 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 25

Where: E.J. Ball Courtroom at the School of Law

Speakers: Steve Gahagans, director, University of Arkansas Police Department; Matt McCoy, associate general counsel; Terry Martin, vice provost for academic affairs; Mark Rushing, assistant vice chancellor for University Relations.

Some of the panelists will be available to answer questions from the media following the forum.
The badly flawed law leaves many questions, not the least about the fact that storage of weapons is prohibited in dorms, nominally, but not necessarily carrying a weapon into a dorm. Feeling safer yet?

This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.
