Laws Concerning Carrying Concealed Firearms on Campus in Montana

The Montana State Constitution provides that  “The government and control of the Montana university system is vested in a board of regents of higher education which shall have full power, responsibility, and authority to supervise, coordinate, manage and control the Montana university system and shall supervise and coordinate other public educational institutions assigned by law.”

As a result, the University System can and does, prohibit concealed weapons on campus.

See Article X, section (9)(2)(a) of the Montana Constitution
