    Question Gun And Colleges

    My school bans firearms. Rarely did I keep a gun in my room, but long story short, in a 24 hour period, one stupid time I did have my .45 in my room and it was discovered by "Homecoming Room Checks".
    I was suspended from school for the remainder of the year (this was last october) I was allowed to return to school this year, but almost as a prisoner, my wrestling scholarship was taken and I am banned from competing in any sports this year.
    This isn't an ultra liberal state either, this is a private school in North Dakota! I have a valid conceal and carry and the firearm was stored cleaned, slide locked back with the magazine out, cable and trigger locked in the manufacturers case.
    I know there are rules against this, but I do think the sentence was harsh. It's been said before, but look at Virginia Tech, maybe there needed to be some armed good guys?

    Too bad, I am sorry to hear your school has this attitude, but most schools do. It will be very hard to get schools to change their mind and policy's about legally armed CC permit holders but maybe someday.

    Cool

    I will probably be moving back to the great state of Texas. Haven't lived there in over 20 years as I went into the military (just recenty retired). So when I read Governor Perry say there should be lawful concealed carry anywhere in the state, I thought it might be time to start planning on making the move. Here's the links to the story(dated 5/1/07).

    We can all hope. When the bill gets passed to actually do it, I'll start planning my move.

    I would seriously look for a college with a wrestling team in UTAH...
