    Amen Brother. If it's not a violation of law then carry.
    Be very discreet. Tell no one. Make sure it is never seen unless you are ready to use it.

    LOL! I am, and I must say you did an excellent job of interpreting the statute as I read it.

    Thanks... I've read a lot of case law and state statutes over the years.

    Statutes can be confusing, and take several re-reads, I also look for other examples like in how line (a) (b) (c) applies to those individuals and can see how line (d) concerning ccw holders applies the same as the the others. Common Sense!

    Welcome to the Forum and hope you stay and continue to post here!

    Know the laws (as others have said) and do NOT carry anywhere that it is illegal. Now school/work/whatever POLICIES are different (IMHO) you have to weigh the risk of carrying and being caught and of not carrying and being attacked.

    That's all I will say too. Concealed means concealed. Gauge the level of risk exposure and act accordingly.

    I will add that travelling by public bus is by definition a high risk situation in almost every single city in the US.

    Obey The Law

    OBEY THE LAW first and foremost.

    If the law forbids carry then policy becomes a mute point.

    If the policy is contrary to the law then you will have to decide which road or avenue to take.

    Err on the side of caution unless you want to gamble with your freedom and/or your permit.

    My Opinion for what its worth...

    I know, and the bad thing in Missouri is that BUSES are totally off limits for CCW unless you have permission by the carrier, leasee or owner. And that is a criminal offense. State law, not a policy

    The link to Mo Statutes is currently down or I would post a direct quote.

    No public buses for me because they are such high risk. Been 30 years since I've been on a public bus anyway.

    Thank you for the thoughtful replies.

    To clarify, I am in Oregon, and it is NOT illegal for me to carry a gun at either university (once I get my CHL in 2 weeks).

    So, these are only policies that I'm being asked to follow, not the law.

    The libertarian in me wants to simply ignore the policies.

    The intelligent person who normally follows the rules will probably leave his gun at home during the day.

    still44, for God's sake and your own, CARRY THAT GUN!

    You can get an education only if you are alive.

    Always follow the rules. If you do not like the rules, find another place to attend school and/or work.

    one thing that i've learned is that "there's a waiver for everything." try talking to the administrators at your school, and explain the situation. if they deny you, you'll at least be able to demonstrate that you tried.

    i'm going through something similar, working on a military base (not near as bad as your situation though). i have to stop carrying concealed before entering the gate, securing the weapon and ammo in separate cases in my vehicle. i then reverse the process on the way out. if i thought i really needed to carry concealed on base (which i don't), i'd go to the base commander for an exception to policy.

    other than that, only you can choose how much personal risk you are willing to take believing in the words of the 2nd amendment.

    Yeah. Uh huh.

    Find me a single school in this country where, even if the carrying of concealed weapons were legal, it would not be against policy.

    Actually there are quite a few. Most are in Utah but they are there and if you want to be able to carry and attend a school you can find them.
