Miscellaneous

K-State plans to spend about $1 million on security to keep guns out of large sporting events in the coming year after the Board of Regents voted to allow K-State, KU, and Wichita State to prohibit guns at large sporting events. Kansas law requires universities have manned metal detectors and armed guards if they prohibit the carrying of firearms, effective July 1. Almost half of that estimated cost is to purchase 70 metal detectors. (The Associated Press, via ESPN)
