School Campus carry???
I live near the University of MN. The law states that I cant carry on school grounds. Well part of town that is considered campus grounds includes several city streets that includes businesses such as bars, restaurants, shops, theaters etc. Can I carry on those streets? If not how do I know when campus grounds end and normal city streets resume? Thanks for the help!

That's a regular #10 sized can of worms there Pard
I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

It's your responsibility to know, if you're going to carry.

We have a very similar situation here in Richmond VA. Virginia Commonwealth University/Medical College of Virginia (VCU/MCV) own a large portion of the downtown area. There is really no spelled out "campus". While they may own the property, they do not own the sidewalks/streets. Those are city property and are maintained by the city with taxpayer money. I've had this discussion with city and VCU police. As long as I am on the sidewalk I am good to go. Along the same line MCV has a no smoking policy for their campus. While they can enforce it on their property, they cannot enforce in on the sidewalk and street.
As to the business along those streets. It will depend again on who owns the property. If owned by the school and leased by the business, then carry will probably be prohibited. If the property is not owned by the school, then you should be good to go.
IANAL and I did not sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night, so take it for what it is worth.

These "gray areas" of the law are very frustrating for everyone--the citizen, law enforcement, school officials, everyone.

I went to the u of m. You really don't know when you're on campus and when you're not? Here's a hint, when you're on school grounds, you're on campus.

I agree with this, but it is not feasible to go to the extent of looking up public records on who owns what land and whether or not it is leased.
