    It's like killing roaches - you have to kill 'em all, otherwise what's the use?

    You'll need to check your state's laws and the individual college's rules for that one.

    They're (colleges) all different.
    That which does not kill us leaves us broken and bleeding...

    Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    It looks like - NOT allowed

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    From the handgunlaw.us link, and oregon code:
    ...
    (1) Any person who intentionally possesses a loaded or unloaded firearm or any other instrument used as a
    dangerous weapon, while in or on a public building, shall upon conviction be guilty of a Class C felony.
    ...
    (3) Subsection (1) of this section does not apply to:
    ...
    (d) A person who is licensed under ORS 166.291 and 166.292 to carry a concealed handgun

    There are two questions: is it legal, and will you get in trouble. All Oregon universities that I'm aware of will expel you if you're a student, and will fire you if you're faculty. Even if you have tenure. They'll try, anyway. However, you'll probably win in court if police try to charge you with anything criminally. Take a look at the Oregon Firearm Federation (http://oregonfirearms.org/) if you're from Oregon -- every Oregon gun owner should be a member. They're currently involved with a court case on this very subject, defending a marine veteran who got in a ton of hot water for having a derringer in school, as a university student.

    Call me confused now but after reading the Oregon "rules", it appears that carry in this situation with a valid CCW permit is allowed...or did I miss some fine print. This issue is a real important question for me (California) too.

    Will someone please either clarify this one (or teach me how to read AND comprehend better )? Thanks.

    "EDIT" After reading the CA requirements and excerpts from Handgunlaw.us and the State AG site, it appears that CA PC 12050 exempts possessors of legal, valid CCW permits from the above restrictions re: schools and colleges as well as a few others.

    Still don't want to be a test case though...

    Open Carry college carry map indicates it's legal in OR. Of course, almost every college in the country has a policy against it. So expulsion is definitely a possibilty.
    "The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree..."
