    Makes sense to me, I wish FL would allow at least that much.

    According to the article, U of M restricts on the entire campus and is prosecuted by the county.

    This is even more important when you consider that MSU "campus" includes all of the agricultural land to the south of the main campus. This has always been an issue around Lansing and East Lansing.

    Can't carry into buildings or dormitories. So, that pretty much excludes all staff, faculty and students from being able to carry on campus, except when whizzing through on an errand that doesn't go into any buildings.

    Still, it's a dent in the armor. If they see no blood running in the streets due to upstanding citizens spontaneously combusting, they might well come around to see that upstanding citizens are no threat at all.

    Yep, a small victory since carrying into buildings is still off-limits. Perhaps it helps those who drive into campus and have or leave a gun in their car.

    But human nutrition senior Eric Gurzelo questioned whether the change would make a difference.

    “Looking at the Virginia Tech massacre, the first person shot was a professor who had a concealed weapon in his car,” he said.
    This guy gets it: a gun in your car, when you are inside a building with an active shooter, won't help you much. (I do remember one incident where someone went to a car, retrieved a gun, and subdued a gunman, but that is rare.)

    Better than nothing, and hopefully it's only a start.

    Still curious what the wording will be. If they fall in line with state law, then it's just Classrooms and Dormitories. The rest of the building (Hallways, common areas) are fine. Many, many employees never set foot in the classrooms.

    Something like this would be very helpful to me in Tennessee. When I go to pick up my oldest son from campus, it is a pain in the neck to stop outside of campus, disarm, lock the unloaded firearm in one safe, the ammunition in another locking case, then proceed onto campus. Reverse when leaving; lather--rinse--repeat when coming back. Even then, the wording in Tennessee law is vague, and one could still be charged with a felony if some prosecutor wanted to make a name for himself or herself.
