PITTSBURG, Kan. — The Student Government Association at Pittsburg State University has approved a resolution by a vote of 12 to 6 supporting campus police carrying Tasers.

The vote came after several months of discussion and two hours of debate during their regular meeting Wednesday night. Several dozens students attended the meeting and spoke in favor and against the proposal.

“The whole thing is more preventative than anything. We had several students say, ‘Isn’t PSU one of the safest campuses in Kansas?’ But we likened it back to the Virginia Tech thing. We were wanting our police to be able to have all the latest things at their disposal to safely carry out their job,” Nathan Woodward, a member of the SGA cabinet, said today.
