A little off subject, but the campus of UND recently made a rule that students must store their guns at a campus police station. The newspaper said they only had room for exactly 200 guns and are already full!

But state universities are not private property. They are state lands supported by taxpayer dollars.

AutoPistola - the question that needs to be asked is how many of the 200 (or more) pistols were being carried on campus before the "storage" rule... and how many complaints or violations occurred before the ruling.

Also, my guess is, that if you had a madman sniper on the roof of a college building or tower and students arrived to pick up their weapons, the Campus PD's response would be to deny the students access to their own firearms. It might come under the guise of "we're too busy" or under the claim of preventing "vigilantism".

Tounge in cheek:

SUNY here in NY is about 28% state supported....so....How do we decide which 28% of the campus facilities allows people to carry?

Another thing to consider, at least here in NY. You can't get a permit till you are 21 years old and it takes from 4-8 months to actually get the permit.

That would mean that a traditional college student couldn't even apply till their senior year and there is a great chance that they wouldn't be able to get a permit to carry till after they graduate.

Good discussion gentlemen, there are many factors to consider concerning CCW on campus and some great ones have come from this thread.

Which ignores
-The large and increasing percentage of "non traditional" students
-Grad students
-and the big group...Faculty, Staff, and Administration.
