The university where I work has a weapon ban on campus, especially in university buildings - even for licensed guns. That means that only outlaws wear weapons. I am often late in the office and have to cross campus in the dark, but cannot wear a gun.
If you were me, would you feel safe or unsafe because of the weapon ban?

There would be riots (but polite riots, unlike NOLA) on Mississippi State's campus if some idiot legislator tried to outlaw guns. So many good ole' boys have guns on them or in their trucks that there would be a real problem trying to ban them.
And of course we have very low crime at MSU and in Starkville.

Actually, if you read the finer points of most University policies the guns are fine as long as they are secured in your vehicle. You just can't bring them into the campus buildings. Break into a few vehicles at any University in Texas and you will definantly find a few guns.
I am guessing you are at The Ohio State University, maybe Capital University.. It may be in a shitty part of a crappy city but the campus is pretty safe, especially if you look at just the crime stats for the campus. Campus police don't put up with much crap from outsiders.

Quoting AeroWesty (Reply 2): Why on earth would you need to carry a gun on campus?
I agree. Living in Texas affords me the right to pack heat if I would like. The reason I don't is that I figure I'll have more of a risk of blowing balls off than ever having to use it for self-defence (or murder).

Granted my university was in a rich part of LA, theft still happens (it isn't a gated campus). Yet like others said, college campuses are usually pretty safe inside. I'm sure your school has some kind of ride system in place for late nights, you can probably have them drive you to the parking lot or your apartment.

They got you on item 5. It's part of the state law not campus policy.
Any place that you are not allowed to carry is known as a "victim zone"

B744F I'm going to agree with you on that point. Poverty is the most likely cause of general crime. However, there are also people out there that are just plain bad. Some come from well to do families and have decent backgrounds. It's just in their genes. They are going to be trouble no matter what. You also can't discount the average weirdos, freaks, rapist, serial killers, and clowns. Some times laws aren't going to protect you. You must take the responsibility upon yourself.
I'm thinking about the poor girl that is getting rid of an abusive husband. She finally got the balls to leave him, she's going to college at night to support herself. He gets drunk and decides he's going to teach her a lesson. Low and behold she's on the college campus where her gun is locked in her car. He beats her to death in front of 3 witnesses who only have the power to watch. The next day we'll read about the threats, and PFA's, and the cries for help. We'll debate the would've could've should'ves on here, but she'll still be dead. I support concealed carry EVERYWHERE.

Funny, Because it was required by state law until a couple of years to have a rifle, pistol or shotgun and cartridges for the same. Unfortunately the survival kit list was updated in 2002 and the rifle requirement removed in order to east travel between Alaska and the Canadians which has some very anti-civil right gun laws on the books.
That was a mistake. And likewise even though we are talking about a lower-48 state with something called a road system in it, there are still going to be areas where you might have to put down and you would be own your own.

This is also a huge debate at the University of Utah, which despite orders from the state to the contrary, continues to enforce a gun ban on campus. Best I can tell, my university doesn't have a gun ban - maybe it should, schools are definitely a place where guns do not belong except in the hands of professionals (which I'm not sure University Police should even be considered).

Quoting MBMBOS (Reply 15): nteresting you should mention this. My sister teaches at UAA and she has been surprised to find that several of her students show up packing.
I had a friend in college from a very remote part of Alaska who told me that many students carried rifles back and forth to high school. The school simply provided lockers for storing the guns during the day. After Columbine I'm sure this practice has been canned though.

The sad thing is, those students, who have been properly instructed on the use of the rifles and have full respect for them are the least likely to pull a columbine.

Quoting L-188 (Reply 20): I ask that question every time Charles Schumer, Diane Feinstein or Sarah Brady open their traps to damm the ownership of firearms.
The firearm is not the cause of violence in this society.
Thank you for saying this...these cowards, along with Bill-ary Clinton are the some of the most ignorant anti-gun cowards in the world. They have no idea how to handle and respect and operate a firearm, yet they act like they know what's best of all of us.
So if you can't have a gun on campus, what about knives? Glass coke bottles? Baseball bats? Grenades? Boxknives? Crossbows? Oh...how about automobiles...with the wrong person behind the wheel, that's just as much a lethal weapon as a .45.
Why the focus on guns only? Anything in the wrong hands can be used as a weapon. Yet liberals and news media morons only focus on guns, and want America to be afraid of them, instead of learning to safely handle and use them properly. But, that's the LIBERAL way...isn't it?

What's your local policy on guns in toilets? I never go to my toilet without my G36, every years dozens of people are killed by crocodiles, and everybody knows that they live in the sewers and can climb up to your toilet.
25 Scbriml: I always keep an Uzi in the toilet. Just in case. Remember folks, guns don't kill people. It's those nasty little bullet things that do the damage.
