Yesterday, the Raging Chicken Press released an article about Kutztown University allowing students who have government permits to carry on campus. The students would not have been able to have the fireaems in university's buildings. The story drew a lot of media attention and quick responses from Kutztown's president.
During the early afternoon, Matt Santos, Kutztown University administrator, told the Allentown Morning Call that this policy proposal came from the Corbett administration. The article read:
The directive that prompted Kutztown University to allow people to carry guns on campus came from Gov. Tom Corbett‘s administration.With the Philadelphia, Lehigh Valley and Central Pennsylvania media all over the Kutztown story, it appears that the universities in the state system will stop on this decision, but that's not for all 14 schools, just the 9 who still have a no gun policy on campus. The Allentown Morning Call then reported that Kenn Marshal, PASSHE spokesman, said:
Corbett’s office of General Counsel directed all 14 state-owned universities to review their policies restricting guns on campus to determine whether the policies would withstand constitutional muster, said Kutztown University spokesman Matt Santos.
"We're saying, let's take a step back and take a closer look at this whole thing," said PASSHE spokesman Kenn Marshall. "A task force will review this and we'll have new recommendations later. In the meantime, we're asking all university to keep whatever policy they have today."So now it looks like the Governor's office has a small little "guns on campus" problem brewing.
