Concealed Carry on Campus

Postby Jmann135 » Sun Jun 17, 2018 10:10 am

Hey guys,

Has anyone heard of any movement on the issue of universities allowing concealed carry? I believe last year's bill that Kasich signed, allows the universities to independently vote on it. There are some open carry groups who participate at the University of Akron and Kent State, but any info on concealing?

I believe one small private college allows it, but as far as I know there are no large colleges or universities that allow the public to carry concealed on their premises. Ad, as far as public colleges and universities, I don't expect they ever will unless forced to do so.

But, as protected by Ohio law, open carry on the grounds of public colleges and universities is legal - however, they (apparently) are allowed to enforce rules prohibiting students and staff from doing so.
