Firearms and other weapons remain banned on all ISU campuses by ISU policy and state law with the exception of people who hold certain special concealed carry permits

Once the law takes effect, the only person you should see carrying a gun may be a uniformed campus security officer. ISU campus security officers are fully trained and qualified to be peace officers. Beginning July 1 holders of those special permits are allowed to carry a concealed firearms on some parts of campus.
