Campus gun ban to remain in place at Duke
Posted September 24, 2013
Durham, N.C. — Despite a state law taking effect next Tuesday that allows people with concealed-carry permits to take their weapons onto school campuses across North Carolina, Duke University officials said gun will still be illegal on the Durham campus.
Sweeping gun legislation passed by lawmakers in July allows concealed weapons inside locked cars at University of North Carolina system campuses, community colleges and public schools.
Private schools such as Duke were given the option of barring weapons on their campuses, and Duke officials said signs would be posted on campus and in university-owned health care facilities about the ban.
