Few University of Kansas students use free gun storage

   LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The University of Kansas is one of two universities in the state that provides storage for guns on campus, though only a handful of students use the service.
   The Lawrence Journal World (http://bit.ly/21Jeg03) reports the university's Office of Public Safety has provided gun storage for students, faculty and staff living on campus since 2009.
   University police Capt. James Anguiano says the free storage is aimed at hunters who want to bring their firearms to school, but are not allowed to keep the weapons in their on-campus residence halls or apartments. He says about four to five students per semester store their guns.
   Emporia State University also provides gun storage for students.
   Under state law, Kansas public universities must allow concealed weapons on campus beginning July 2017. The Kansas Board of Regents and individual universities are working on policies to implement the change.
