“No Weapons Permitted”


By Beth Hanson

On Tuesday, Nov. 1, a law went into effect permitting Wisconsin residents over 21 to conceal and carry a weapon, with a permit, on both public and private property.

In response to the law, the college applied new signs to the doors of all campus buildings indicating “No weapons permitted (except law enforcement personnel).”  The majority of these signs appeared over fall break.

While the signs prevent weapons from being carried and concealed in campus buildings, they do not prohibit people from carrying concealed weapons (with a permit) outdoors and in their cars.

The new law does not change Beloit College policy.  The policy on weapons still reads that “the use and/or storage of any weapons, firearms, ammunition or explosives of any kind in a residence hall are strictly prohibited.”
