UW Faculty Votes to Stay Gun-Free
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming Faculty Senate has approved a resolution supporting a gun-free campus.
The resolution approved last week urges state lawmakers to consider the consequences of any proposal to allow open or concealed carry weapons on campus.
But a survey indicates that UW Staff Senate may not agree with the Faculty Senate.
Results of a Staff Senate poll distributed Nov. 30 shows that 52 percent of the 1,355 respondents supported concealed carry on campus provided that the person passes a background check and has sufficient training with the weapon. Thirty-six percent opposed concealed carry.
Another 5 percent responded in favor of concealed carry with just a background check, while another 7 percent said they were in outright favor of concealed carry.
