Washington State University Students Don’t Have a Legal Place on Campus to Store Guns thanks to New Law

Recommended Posts

As students began moving into campus dorms recently, they were informed by Washington State University housing that their firearms could no longer be stored by campus police.

For decades, the Washington State University Police Department had provided a gun-storage service for students since firearms are prohibited on campus.

In the past, the campus police provided a legal way for students to store their firearms, and an average of 50 guns had been kept there.

New stricter gun-control legislation enacted in Washington state forced the campus police department to end its gun-storage service to students.

“Assistant Chief Steve Hansen says it’s not feasible for the department to conduct background checks every time a student wants to retrieve their firearm when those checks take 3 to 5 days,” noted a news media report. “The decision from WSUPD to end firearm storage means there is no place for students to legally store their guns on campus.”
