    Yes, absolutely. If a person is an upstanding adult and has the ability to legally carry anywhere else, one should be able to carry on-campus without any ramifications from the campus administration whatsoever. Wearing a firearm for self-defense should be as mundane as wearing socks to class.

    I attend a large, private, baptist-affiliated university, which because of its private status, would be able to override and not support this rule, if put into act. What do you all think about this?
    I think this aspect is ridiculous, actually. I highly value private property rights. However, I think right of such organizations to exercise their rights over one's ability to carry defensive weaponry stops when that business or institution functions materially identically to any other similar business or institution.

    For example, if Harvard University operates no different than University of Utah, from the standpoint of having students from all walks of life apply for entry and attending classes, then IMO that university should have zero legal authority to operate in such a manner that precludes or punishes any carrying of any weapons carried for self-defense purposes. Faculty, staff, students, the public, on any and all forms of "school" campus facility or property, with zero legal or administrative ramifications.

    In short, the only thing "special" about gun-free zones is that they protect criminals at the expense of upstanding people. For that reason, alone, they should be disallowed ... everywhere. You want to behave as an upstanding person? Then, you have (so far) earned the right to defend yourself and others everywhere. You want to behave as a criminal? Then, you have earned the right to have your actions terminated, perforated from defensive actions from the nearest 100 people around you. Just as it should be.
