OR Higher Ed Board considers new campus gun ban

Published:

 

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- A gun ban on Oregon's seven university campuses would take effect immediately if the Higher Education Board approves a proposal Friday that was crafted to overcome legal objections.

The state Court of Appeals struck down a previous ban in September.

The Register-Guard reports (http://is.gd/9HVfEv ) the new approach would require most people who have a contract relationship with a university to agree to leave their handguns at home.

It would apply to faculty and staff who draw paychecks, students who sign up for dorm rooms, vendors or groups using camps facilities and people buying tickets to sporting events.
