    What do you think of concealed carry on campus?

    As the thread title asks, what are your feelings towards concealed carry on college campus? I know a few states actually prohibit this by law but the majority dont.

    I feel that you should be able to carry anywhere you could be threatened ,attacked,robbed,or killed

    Did it yesterday -- VT (Virginia Tech for those outside of VA (Virginia for some others))

    Do it many times a year VT, Radford, and occasionally at UVA.

    It's legal for me, as I'm not an employee or student.

    Should be permitted for them, also.

    FWIIW -- Have also OC on VT campus. Also, legally.

    How do you feel about students getting robbed, raped, or killed on a college campus?

    A college campus should be no different than any other part of society...time to arm all legally able citizens.

    +1. If ya' got a permit, you should be able to carry anywhere anytime. Really you should be able to do that w/o a permit and maybe carry in places now totally restricted like courthouses as long as you've passed a NICS check.

    I believe it is legal for the employees or students. They just lose their job or are expelled if caught.

    Oh and I am all for CC on campus. Their should be no repercussions if caught such as loss of job or expulsion. As long as it is a state school though.

    However I do feel that private schools should be allowed to ban it. Private property rights and all.

    My mis-statement or incomplete statement. To quick with the reply.

    It's not a Firearms violation at the colleges I listed and most public colleges -- VCU excepted.

    Non-public colleges are a different issue.

    Why do you think some of the crazies target the schools??? They know that there will be less likely anyone carrying.

    I'm all for concealed carry on campus. Carrying is prohibited on state owned property in North Dakota, but I got into a HEAP of trouble for possesing a firearm on campus 3 years ago, but I went to a private school, so where as they wanted to charge me, they could not, but I did get suspended for a year.

    If your legal to carry, you should be able to carry anyplace.

    I think people should not be denied their basic human right of self-defense solely because they are enrolled in or employed by a college or university.
