    Go to university that didn't disarm me. But, not everyone has that luxury. If you can't do that, then acquire the skills necessary to effectively use a non-lethal weapon extremely well. Else, accept that you'll be less than prepared when being there.

    Someone should have told Martin Luther King to shut up and just "follow the policy" of going to the back of the bus.

    Actually wasn't it Rosa Parks that made that act famous?

    Not following a policy is not something everyone has the luxury of doing. In this example, if the punishment is expulsion, the loss of tuition, grades and time could be prohibitive. At the other end of the OP's quandary, the loss of employment is the likely punishment. Of course that is why the policy.

    So you have to decide if you have the luxury of being able bear the potential punishment. I make that decision each time I press the gas pedal down far enough to exceed the speed limit.

    I agree. We all have to make that choice.

    Some here tell the OP to weigh the consequences of violating the policy vs the consequences of being unarmed when needed. I fall in that camp.

    Others tell the OP to follow policy. Period. I disagree.

    If carrying contrary to policy works for you, go for it, but to most people the consequences outweigh the price in many circumstances or compromise their ethics since they agreed to follow the policy when they accepted the job, enrolled in school or were admitted entry somewhere. But most people that ignore policies, or laws, probably shouldn't talk about it on a public forum....

    I have 1 year left of college (at Virginia Tech). Are you telling me that if you were me you would risk being caught carrying, which is against policy, on campus??

    God knows I would get tackled by a SWAT team and paraded around on national news as a terrorist if someone noticed it. The punishment for breaking that rule is a Judicial Referral which will lead to possible suspension/arrest and expulsion...remembe-- I have 1 year left...

    If it's a law. Follow it. No means no.


    If it's a POLICY? I say tell them to stuff it and carry anyways. No policy is going to make me stop carrying because of what some "big wig" thinks. Especially if I'm working in a bad area.

    My daily routine is to hop on the Blue Ridge Parkway (National Park - no guns allowed), take a trip to the Post Office, then to the Bank next door, and then over to the local diner which serves beer and wine after 12PM. I'm starting to wonder if this is just a waste of my time. I have not got my CCW yet, but I'm starting to see a pattern here.

    CCW says you can carry 'a' gun. Does that mean just 1 gun, or can you carry 2, as in a backup gun? I live in NC.
