This is confusing on so many levels. Oregon is a very liberal state (at least the big cities which have a majority of the population) yet we have some of the best gun laws in the nation. Go figure.

Where'd you get those judges? Why don't they look for some of the Supreme Court Judges in those same areas?

It has always amazed me at how Universities are treated as if they are sovereign nations and regardless what the laws are in your state, the University seems to be free to make up their own rules. Why should the rights I have as a carrier in KY be trumped by the rights of a University when they are receiving money from the very state whose laws they reject? Case in point, handicap parking tags that you get in KY are good for the entire state but not for the University of Kentucky. What's up with that? This has always been hypocrisy to me. UK may have changed their stance on recognizing KY handicap tags but I know that this was in place at one point.
I can understand a private college being able to reserve the right of banning guns on its campus but not the ones that receive state money.

Just a thought, no evidence to back it up, but it might have something to do with the size of their economies. The university that I work for is the largest employer in the state, weighing in at somewhere around 25,000 employees, with an institution that spends an amount of money equivalent to the GDP of some smaller countries. That kind of impact will buy you plenty of legislation.
Head in the sand. With that mentality, I wonder what he is really learning anyway.University of Oregon students will urge the university system to appeal what they see as a "flawed" and "dangerous decision," said Ben Eckstein, 21, a senior and student body president.
"Students feel our college campus should be a place where we can learn safely, engage safely," he said. "When anybody brings a lethal weapon on campus, it threatens our ability to learn safely."
