My title was a bit off target. Sorry.
The guns would be purchased by club officials and checked out for members to use during club events. Club events are held at a couple of different ranges. We have a safe on campus, for people that live on campus, to store personal firearms. The guns would be stored in the safe and access is limited. Even personal firearms must be checked out through club officials.
We have talked to other private colleges nearby, that have had clubs for many years, and this is how they operate and have had no problems. Some of the public colleges even have their own on campus ranges.
Seams like once we the people give what, at the time, seams like a reasonable inch and "they" take the unreasonable mile we can only get that mile back one inch at a time.
No spelun and grammar is not my specialty. So please don't hurt my sensitive little feelings by teasing me about it.
