Did State of Kansas Just Okay Concealed Carry on State University Campuses?

  • Holy cow! Kids packing heat to class, games and then to bars? That’s a flipping scary thought!!!

    Looks like there could be a market for KU KEVLAR PLATE VESTS for students this fall!!!

  • @jaybate-1.0 not games!

  • @jaybate-1.0 Some facts from KU concerning CC.


    Personally, I carry and have a Louisiana permit which still requires training prior to issuance. I do not support CC without a permit and the requisite training. Bars and the bar areas of restaurants are off limits if you carry in most if not all states. Quickest way to lose your permit in Louisiana is get a DUI. Since I got my permit I’m alot more cognizant of speed limits as I’d rather not go through the CC routine with LEO’s if stopped.

  • @jaybate-1.0 Really? Do a little homework before you start yapping. First off, no it wont be allowed at games and secondly most bars do not allow CC in their business and if they did it has fart fire nothing to do with KU it up to them. I’m kinda split on the topic but if some students had guns at the VaTech shooting I bet less people would’ve died. I’ll tell you like I tell others that are against guns, I’ll gladly give up my guns as soon you take them from the criminals first, if outlawing guns would keep them off the street so well why don’t we try it with meth. Oh wait we already did and it doesn’t work. “It’s better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt” Abraham Lincoln. I don’t mean to be a dick but I get tired of the political bs from sides (I’m independent, there all crooks) but atleast do some research so you’re informed on a subject you wish to discuss.

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    Did you read that, or is that a prayer? 🙂

    God help us all, if TPTB allow anyone to carry concealed weapons in AFH.

    That would be the irony of all ironies.

  • @jaybate-1.0 metal detectors at games. Can’t carry bags or purses. Small clear plastic bag allowed.

  • @jaybate-1.0

    A little late to the party, aren’t you. This topic was already discussed in this forum weeks ago…

  • @JayHawkFanToo well jeez, it’s ok.

  • @kjayhawks

    Wow! Just flipping wow!

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    I did not say it wasn’t…

  • @JayHawkFanToo

    Oh, jeez, oh pete, oh, gaslight me jesus through the goal posts of life. 🙂

    I am wracked with doubt about whether I should care about kids packing heat a week late.


    25, baby, 25!!!

  • Everybody’s so rude

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    First, I’m not rude. I’m insecure. I’m self doubting. I"m wringing my hands.

    But be all that as it may…

    How about the new generation of heat that beats the metal detectors. Are these permitted, or not?

    How about camera drones with little CBW capsules mounted on them with release by joy stick? Are they allowed if we train and license those that fly them, too? (Just kidding.)

    I wonder if the insoucient powers that were that enabled this “freedom” get any kickbacks on the metal detector bidnesses, or on the upgraded weapon crony contracting for campus security and LPD for game days? (Just kidding.)

    I’m jealous. (Just kidding.)

    I want in on the action (note: all fiction. No malice.)

    There’s big bucks to be made off this. Who in their right mind wouldn’t want to sell both heat and crimson and blue tipped ammo to returning students, plus plate vests with little Jayhawk emblems to incoming freshmen and to their parents worried about their safety and coming to their first home comings!!! (Just kidding.)

    This will condition lots more young weapon buyers in the weapons pipeline. This is better than getting kids to start smoking younger. All good. It will trigger sale of tons more fire arms and tactical flashlights and neck knives and other survivalist bull biscuits to more over a longer span. All good. (Just kidding.)

    I am pretty confident we can jump the gun, so to speak, and convince incoming students to opt for more Molle back packs, too. Yo!!! And you know how kids get into retro mil-chic. Let’s comb the military surplus outfits for old ALICE frame back packs that we can sew some Jayhawks onto, too. Kids, listen up, these ALICE packs are soooooooooo much more retro cool than the new Molle packs. These ALICE systems keep the load off your back and are the only way to go when fire fights break out, Lawrence gets sealed off, and you’ve got to back pack to the river to catch some fish just to get some protein. (Just kidding.)

    And, you know, kids today would be absolutely intense for some crimson and blue striped hydration bladders with rock chalk KU on them.

    ALL GOOD!!! (Just kidding.)

    Surely it will at the very least trigger another generation of crony contracts for lethality upgrades in campus security and LPD arsenals. Gotta be able to out gun the popular brands of CC firearms the kids might be carrying, you know. (Just kidding.)

    (Just kidding.)

    And private prisons, which reputedly now charge the state for a year of prisoner incarceration about the same amount as Harvard charges for a year of school, have to LOVE this law, or whatever the hell the morons call it!!! (Just kidding.)

    What the hell, let’s roll the iWatches, iPhones, and iPads into a student deal with Apple to make some iTasers all with crimson and blue Molle kit. (Just kidding.)

    Oooooooh, this is 21st Century Real Economiks.

  • @jaybate-1.0 I was referring to everyone else

  • @jaybate-1.0 I was thinking about the dorm compatible forms. Do you stay up late? Do you conceal and carry?

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Rudeness appears a rising issue across the good old USA.

    But this too shall pass.

    LOL about the dorm compatible forms.

    Actually, the first thing I thought of was that Bruce Pearl down at Florida has to be wishing he had been at a state university of Kansas, when he had that team at UTenn that reputedly got in trouble for firearms. He could have just told them all to get trained and licensed to carry concealed weapons on campus and they probably would have all been super happy. In turn, Bruce’s program might not have imploded. Ah, but if ifs and buts were candy and nuts…

    (Just kidding.)

    Say, I wonder if state universities in Kansas will now have an unfair advantage in attracting coaches and players that like to conceal carry?

    (Just kidding.)

    The only possible bright spot I can see in all of this is this: there may be a few 5-star/OAD 1s and 5s that like to conceal carry, and maybe they will decided to come to KU regardless of our shoe contract being with adidas. Ya think?!

    (Just kidding.)

    Rock Chalk!

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    One more thought: might KU be able to sign an apparel contract with Tactical apparel firms? I don’t recall these firms have ever been tapped into for sponsorship revenues by D1 basketball programs. KU could definitely create a marketing buzz, and up its revenues, if they asked for their uniforms to be made with conceal carry pockets and sport the logo of a tactical apparel maker! They might even start a line of concealed carry coach’s sweats.

    What the heck!!! KU could sign an endorsement contract with one of the major fire arm manufacturers and it could become the sole, authorized supplier of concealed carry weapons for the KU Jayhawk basketball team, maybe for football, too.

    (Just kidding.)

  • @jaybate-1.0 most oad’s are under 21.

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    Dang, that is a problem!

    Maybe some of the arms and tactical apparel industry firms could lobby to lower the age requirement?

    Or maybe they could just lobby for an exception for basketball recruits at the 1 and 5 spots?

    (Just kidding.)

  • @jaybate-1.0 no on the endorsements.

  • @jaybate-1.0 you should try the NRA.

  • @Crimsonorblue22


    Just between you and me, I’m kind of against concealed carry on campus, and on the basketball team, and at AFH.

    And I’m really against concealed carry at the Octagon of Cow Pies in Manhattan.

  • @jaybate-1.0 so were the students and staff, didn’t matter.

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    Seriously–a very discouraging turn of legal events.

  • The legislature was hesitant to prevent guns from being carried in state mental hospitals. That’s really all you need to know on the topic.

  • What could go wrong? Testosterone, booze, girls, guns. I see no problems at all.

  • @nuleafjhawk Booze? On campus? Eeeek!

  • @mayjay look at what those frat boys didn’t do-help their friend, left him to die. Can’t believe humans can do that, makes me ill!🤢

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Humans have been acting on aggressive and instinctively self-centered impulses for tens of thousands of years, based on millions of years of biological and genetic evolution (misnomer, in this regard) before that. Unfortunately, “civilized” behavior is a relatively new concept, based purely in cognitive development that has advanced in just a few thousand years way beyond basic instincts. We should probably be amazed at how far the race has come in checking primitive behavior in a blink of an eye compared to how long basic survival required it.

    But, yeah, they should be put on a deserted island (with many thousands like them) and left to lives not benefitting from a society they seem to not value.

  • @kjayhawks

    I’ve been meaning to talk to you about that “fart fire” issue of yours.

    Are you taking precautions to have safe “fart fire?”

    @jaybate-1.0 I’m actually ok with KU students packing heat. I mean the libs love to put on masks and gang up on those that don’t believe as you do.

    I call it leveling the playing field. I didn’t raise my baby girl to be brain washed. Taught her to think for herself. Sadly in this day of age. This isn’t popular. I have a big relief in my heart knowing that my daughter can protect herself when Dems want to start burning down the place.
