A new club at Kettering University in Flint aims to start a conversation about possibly allowing the carrying of concealed firearms on campus.
The Flint Journal reports Kettering Students for Concealed Carry became an official university club Aug. 1.
Kaity Huff is the group's vice president. She says college campuses are usually safer than other public places, but "anything can happen."
A group of students has been discussing similar topics since 2011, but they say becoming an official club allows them to reach out to more students.
Michigan law prohibits carrying concealed weapons in classrooms and dorms. Kettering, like most other Michigan colleges, extends the ban across campus.
On Tuesday, the group plans an event where members will walk around campus wearing empty holsters and talk about club's views.
