Gun control and campus safety concerns create a packed house at Pittsburg State University.
PSU students debated Wednesday night whether the university should allow them to conceal and carry weapons on campus. Students, faculty, and staff explained reasons why conceal and carry should or should not be allowed.
The Student Government Association had taken to social media and email to survey students. 53% of those surveyed said they were for conceal and carry. 44% said they were against it. The remaining 3% said they were not sure. Officials say the survey was not a scientific survey.
After hearing comments in Wednesday night's meeting SGA voted 22 to 16 to add Pittsburg State to a list of Kansas universities opposed to conceal and carry.
