    Carrying in Minnesota university campuses?

    I was looking through some past posts and looked at the handgunlaw.us site and it appears that people with valid CCW can carry on campus. Can anyone provide additional information on this?
    I am thinking about going back to school for graduate work and this would change where I go to school.

    Thank you in advance.

    Soildgun,
    This site will answer some of you questions about Minnesota.

    Note #24 3rd down. You will want to contact The U of M. I'm pretty sure the U does NOT allow student to carry.

    It's legal; although, against school policy. Basically, you'd just get expelled if found.
    Minnesota Statute 624.714:
    Subd. 18.Employers; public colleges and universities.

    (a) An employer, whether public or private, may establish policies that restrict the carry or possession of firearms by its employees while acting in the course and scope of employment. Employment related civil sanctions may be invoked for a violation.

    (b) A public postsecondary institution regulated under chapter 136F or 137 may establish policies that restrict the carry or possession of firearms by its students while on the institution's property. Academic sanctions may be invoked for a violation.

    (c) Notwithstanding paragraphs (a) and (b), an employer or a postsecondary institution may not prohibit the lawful carry or possession of firearms in a parking facility or parking area.

    There are several errors on handgunlaw.us as I've stated in the past. Always check your state's website for accurate information or write your State Attorney Generals office. Handgunlaw.us is a private site and the information is not always current nor complete.

    Hijack not intended, just wanted to help clarify your resource.

    Rudy is correct. Legal yes but the UofM would have non-legal means to make your life difficult so it is a choice.

    I can since I don't work or go to school there any more

    My wife is a professor at another state University here in MN, so I did the research before we moved here. It is clearly NOT illegal for either students or university employees to carry on campus, but it is equally clear that students will be expelled, and employees will be fired if they are caught carrying.

    Of course, as the spouse of a professor, I am neither a student nor an employee, so I am always carrying when visiting my wife on campus...

    The one bright spot about MN law is that it explicitly states that parking lots are OK, so you are definitely alright carrying to & from campus, so long as you leave it in your car. Of course, you will probably still be in trouble if you are discovered in your car on campus with a firearm so I'd do your best to remain unseen even in your car. I assume you have neither the money nor the desire to spend time in court to get re-instated in school after being expelled for being seen with a gun in your car in the parking lot...

    This seems to be to be a great step towards safety to and from ANY school...too bad it couldn't be that way everywhere.

    No hijack intended, but that is the way Oklahoma and Texas law reads so far as campus carry -- in a parked car is OK, which allows for carry to and from.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.
