So, according to the article you can have guns in your car and on the grounds. I wonder how accurate that is? Probably just reporting half the information.
"which will immediately ban guns from classrooms, buildings, dormitories and sporting and entertainment events. "

Not as a student or anybody involved in a business venture with the university, but as a random passerby.
Just got an email from the university that 2 students were just robbed at gunpoint a block off campus. These emails seem to stream in consistently.
Where was the university police when this occured? Nowhere to be found.
Given this is only university policy and not law (they cannot detain nor arrest me for this), I'm seriously considering carrying anyway. Eugene is no Compton, but I've seen more than my fair share of shady people out at night. Given I get off class / work usually well past dark, I am often walking alone in the dark to get to the bus stop.

Being off campus, I wouldn't expect the campus police to be around. Do campus police have jurisdiction off campus?

The Northeast Coast has it's share of ANTI GUN Politics,FWIW you can't carry on Campus in Texas either,but we can carry in the State Capitol Building.

What do you consider NE? MA and south for a few hundred miles yes. NH, ME, VT have very good gun laws (6,6, and 7 on the Brady Bunch scale out of 100).

This probably sounds really cruel. It just a given that there will be more school and college shooting massacres. It is just a matter of time and location. It might be tomorrow, it might be 10 years from now. So having said that, I hope the location is one of the campuses in Oregon affected by this new policy.

Left coast logic defies common sense. There ought to be a study of student muggings and rapes by armed perps on campus. It happened to me.

That's my point. They want to deny students the ability to carry, yet they don't (and can't) provide adequate security for said students.

I don't think Oregon's Court of Appeals will take this insult lightly. "If we can't have an administrative rule banning guns we'll have a policy instead" doesn't pass the laugh test. I guarantee this gets fast-tracked back up to them.
