Questions about Arkansas college campus

#1

Post by n5wmk » Fri Aug 09, 2019 8:21 am

In a few weeks, I'll be traveling to the Fayetteville area for a car event. Most of the event is centered at a hotel in nearby Bentonville, but the final day car show is on the U of A campus at the Agri Park.

I plan to carry concealed, with an understanding of Arkansas's reciprocity with Texas. I've read up on their laws, and I think that I understand that concealed carry is legal on the campus, but I thought I'd ask for the expert collective opinion here.

Thanks! :txflag:

You must have an Arkansas ‘enhanced’ license.
Note: You must have additional training and an Endorsement on your Arkansas License to Carry to carry on Public University/College Campuses. This option is only available to those with an Arkansas License to Carry with Endorsement and not with another states permit/license Arkansas honors. Handgunlaw.us recommends you read all of 5-73-305 , 5-73-306 and 5-73-322 if going to carry on a University/College campus as they are very long and the entire contents can’t be put here. Also the Endorsement can allow the person to carry in public buildings while those with a regular license to carry issued by Arkansas can’t carry. The AR AG has put out an opinion (2017-062) stating that publically owned buildings that serve alcohol can ban those with an endorsement from carrying there by posting a sign.
More information will become available from the AG and/or Arkansas State Police in the future and will be added here.
