Schools have traditionally been gun-free zones, but some states are considering loosening or changing laws when it comes to firearms on campus.
According to Armedcampuses.org, an anti-gun site which lists postsecondary institutions that currently allow firearms on campus, Utah is the only state which prohibits colleges from setting institutional rules regarding guns on campus and expressly allows arms on campus. Colorado, Michigan and Virginia allow institutions to ban guns at their discretion, but host a number of schools which allow firearms on campus.
Below, check out seven states moving towards looser campus gun laws.
