TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Pima Community College’s board of governors has approved a new policy about guns on their campuses.

The policy approved Wednesday states that the use, possession or display of firearms and other weapons, explosive device or fireworks is prohibited from all of the college’s campuses.

No concealed carry permit exempts a person from the policy.

The policy states that firearms can be stored in a person’s locked and privately owned vehicle, or in a locked compartment on the person’s privately owned motorcycle.

Law enforcement officers are exempt from the policy.

Also exempt are firearms or weapons used in authorized academic programs for which prior approval has been obtained.

The chief of the college’s police department also can review and grant exemption requests.
