Gun Ban for PA College Campuses is Delayed

Officials acknowledge the proposal is controversial.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: “A vote to create a weapons policy covering Pennsylvania’s 14 state-owned universities that was to occur as soon as Jan. 23 has been postponed indefinitely to allow more information-gathering and input from the public, officials said today. … The policy, as recommended by a State System task force, would prohibit offensive weapons including firearms from buildings, sporting and outdoor events plus all other ‘sensitive areas’ across the 14 universities that include the Western Pennsylvania campuses of California, Clarion, Edinboro, Indiana and Slippery Rock universities.”
