Campus Carry (SB-11) Info

Senate Bill 11 (S.B. 11), known as the “campus carry bill,” legalizes the carrying of a concealed handgun by concealed carry licensed holders on public college and university campuses. This legislation took effect on university campuses Aug.1, 2016, and the law went into effect for public community/junior colleges on Aug. 1, 2017.

Additionally, the law requires that each institution develop appropriate policies governing the carrying of a concealed weapon on their campuses. As a result, Dr. Brenda Kays, Kilgore College President, formed a campus carry taskforce made up of KC faculty, staff and students. This taskforce had the responsibility of developing policy recommendations for consideration by the college president and the KC Board of Trustees.
