Students at Kennesaw State University are being surveyed about Georgia's campus gun laws. The survey, being conducted by Jennifer McMahon, a professor and assistant chairwoman of the department of sociology and criminal justice, was emailed to students Feb. 11, days before the mass shooting in Parkland, Fla. Its results will only be discussed at academic conferences, at invited presentations and in academic journals, according to The Sentinel, the KSU student newspaper. "By surveying faculty, administrators, staff and students at a large public university in one of the eleven states that have a campus carry law, our results can help criminologists, university leaders and policymakers understand the attitudes and experiences that individuals have on a campus where concealed carry permit holders are allowed to carry guns," McMahon said. Under a law that went into effect in July, college students who are 21 or older and have a weapon carry permit may carry a concealed weapon in class and on certain parts of campus.
