The Virginia Tech Board of Visitors took action today to solidify a ban of concealed weapons from campus buildings and from major events.
The board, according to a ruling from the state Attorney General's office, was required to adopt a state regulation in order to ban legal conceal carry weapons. A simple existing university policy was not sufficient, according the attorney general's opinion.
The board today unanimously passed the resolution establishing the regulation - which pertains to all weapons.
