EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) – Students at Emporia State University are expressing their opposition to guns on campus.

The Emporia Gazette reports that The Associated Student Government has released a resolution against guns on campus. The group’s president Elijah Williams says a recent survey shows that an overwhelming number of students on campus are opposed to allowing guns on their school grounds.

The Personal and Family Protection Act was approved by the Legislature, authorizing concealed carry in state and municipal buildings, including state university buildings. Universities have been given a period of time to prepare for the change, which will expire July 1, 2017.

Emporia State University faculty members have also approved a resolution opposing guns on campus.
