(Kutztown) -- At least five Pennsylvania state-owned universities are now allowing guns onto campus after students complained they weren't permitted to pack their firearms, and a subsequent legal analysis by the state's lawyers concluded that an outright ban on weapons was likely unconstitutional.
Kutztown in Berks County, Shippensburg in Cumberland County, Edinboro, Slippery Rock and Millersville in Lancaster County are all campuses that have all changed their policies over the past year to reflect the advice of lawyers in the governor's office and the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.
But state system officials appear to be having second thoughts, telling all 14 member schools on Friday to hold off on any new weapons policy changes while a task force takes a second look at the issue.
