Prohibiting Handguns

April 2, 2018

Eight colleges in Arkansas have had an exemption approved that will allow them to ban concealed handguns from their sports facilities. The football stadiums for the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Arkansas State Red Wolves are both included in this exemption.

An article from the Seattle Times reports that since a law was passed last year, almost 1,000 individuals have received enhanced handgun licenses that allow them to carry concealed handguns on college campuses and other locations in Arkansas. In order to receive an exemption from this law, the colleges needed to submit a security plan to the state police for approval. Private schools and universities aren’t required to allow concealed handguns on their campuses.

The exemption allows public colleges to designate facilities where handguns aren’t allowed, including football stadiums and arenas. The biggest cost involved with the schools’ security plans has come with signage to designate the gun-free facilities. At the University of Central Arkansas, posting signs for the 14 athletic facilities cost about $3,072.

Along with the cost, there are some other considerations for the schools. As an example, if a non-collegiate athletic event is held at an exempt arena, concealed handguns would then be allowed unless there was another prohibition that applied.
