    A brief survey of college weapon policies in southeastern VA

    A little research I did after VCDL posted that Blue Ridge Community College references VA's CCW law in their list of recognized activities.

    1. Tidewater Community College (Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Portsmouth):

    - 4.2 Examples of Prohibited Conduct

    Specific examples of conduct that may be considered threats or acts of violence
    include, but are not limited to, the following:

    - Unauthorized possession of or inappropriate use of firearms, weapons, or any other dangerous devices on college property.

    * Sounds sufficiently vague to me!
    -----------------------------------------------
    2. Paul D. Camp Community College (Suffolk & Franklin)

    On line Policy manual unavailable.
    -----------------------------------------------
    3. Regent University

    No mention of firearms in student handbook, however:

    - 8. Violation of housing rules or regulations is prohibited. Unknown if housing rules encompass firearms.
    ------------------------------------------------
    4. Old Dominion University

    Firearms Policy
    Statement
    The possession, storage, or use of any kind of ammunition, firearms, explosives, air rifles, or air pistols on University owned or operated property is prohibited, unless authorized in writing by the President upon recommendation of the University’s Director of Public Safety. Appropriate sanctions for violations of this policy will apply.
    ------------------------------------------------
    5. Norfolk State University (My favorite!)

    Norfolk State University has a zero tolerance policy for weapons and violence.

    Weapons include but are not limited to the following: knives, razors, broken bottles, brass knuckles, chains, locks, all guns, firecrackers or any other object used to threaten or cause injury to/upon another.

    * I guess "all guns" makes them extra special bad?
    -------------------------------------------------
    6. Virginia Wesleyan College

    Can't get their server to work, but as memory serves, one web page states a complete ban on weapons, including hunting, while another web page reminds students that they retain all their rights under the US and VA Constitutions. A letter to the College President, written after one of their unarmed secirty officers was murdered, re this matter went unanswered.

    7. College of William & Mary

    "Each member of the College community enjoys all rights of citizenship and has a responsibility to fulfill the obligations incumbent on all citizens."

    BUT:

    Weapons, Firearms, Fireworks, Explosives, and Combustibles
    Weapons, firearms, fireworks, and explosives are prohibited on campus. Gasoline (other than that used legally in motor vehicles) and all other combustible liquids are also prohibited. The possession of fireworks or the exploding of fireworks in the residence halls or elsewhere on the campus is prohibited.
    Toy, counterfeit, replica, or blank-firing firearms or other weapons are prohibited on campus. Pellet, paint, and bb guns are also prohibited. The College reserves the right to confiscate weapons, fireworks, and any instruments, toys, or other things which reasonably appear to be weapons or other prohibited items listed above, to hold those items for appropriate disposition, and to refer the possessor for judicial action.
    Any student who wishes to possess an object that is deemed a “weapon” by this policy on campus for any reason, including participating in an academic activity, club sport, or extracurricular activity, must seek and obtain approval from the Dean of Students Office prior to bringing the object to the College. The College reserves the right to refuse permission to any request and/or to place conditions on the approval of such requests.

    VMI we had a no guns policy, but every freshman had a M14 in his room with a real rusty bayonet. Of course the firing pin was removed but we had paper clips!!

    Just saw in the paper that Tidewater Community College is now much safer than before VT. They now have nearly twice as many unarmed security people. Wow, that oughta do it!

    Saw that also. Interesting to note that most big schools have police, while the community colleges have unarmed security.

    Then there's Virginia Wesleyan, which will have 1 LEO at night, borrowed from VA Beach. After the security officer was killed, the President of VW said that he didn't believe guns should be on campus in VB, even though some other wesleyans were armed.

    I remember when we used to shoot 3 position .22 gallery matches at the University of Michigan indoor range. Most colleges had smallbore rifle and pistol teams once upon a time......
