Baylor Student Board Approves Concealed Guns On Campus

The Baylor University Student Senate has approved a resolution that would allow students and others who have concealed handgun permits to carry their guns on the Waco campus.

It still needs approval of the Baylor board of regents before it takes effect. And the student body president, Dominic Edwards, could veto the measure over the next seven days.

School spokeswoman Lori Fogleman tells the Waco Tribune-Herald that Baylor officials believe allowing the guns would create security challenges.

The resolution approved Thursday was written by 20-year-old senior Ganon McCahill after a student was killed and two others wounded in shooting this year at a university near his hometown of Seattle.

“Our whole purpose of this meeting and this bill was to increase safety on campus, and the best way to do that, as we see it, is to allow concealed carry,” McCahill said.

“Regardless of how great our police department is, which it is a very highly ranked and well-respected police department, they can’t protect us in a situation where there’s a shooter in a classroom and the door’s locked.”
