Nuts don't usually pack heat. They store it and drag it out to do their terrible deed.

I really have no problem. Of course, they should have to register it with the school so the school can do a search.

That red headed nut in the theater hit is a good example of a school "missing" (ignoring) a "nut".

I REALLY wish I had been packing heat this morning. I was innocently walking Linda-The-Dog, when she was suddenly attacked by an off-leash pit bull! I had to physically pull the pit bull off Linda by his collar (I am a 60 year old woman), and then he turned on ME, I screamed and let go of the leash, and Linda ran with him away from me and started fighting with him. I screamed as loud as I could and a bunch of neighbors came out and subdued the pit bull (using Linda’s leash) and brought him back to his owners. He wasn’t a vicious dog, and probably just wanted to “Play” but he wouldn’t leave us alone.

He could have been the type of dog that would have killed me or my dog.

Linda is OK too, but she needs a bath now because she got all covered with pit bull spit.

I walk my dog with a leash. I bring Three biodegradable poop bags and dispose of them properly. I carefully choose my route so as not to infringe upon anyone else’s property rights. I make sure Linda has all her shots.

But then this stuff happens.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

LIB students - NO! They’d only hurt themselves, or an innocent bystander or one of the buildings.

Conservative students - YES! They’ve been taught to respect guns since they were babies.

What part of “. . . shall not be inFRinged” do you not understand?

Registration is inFRingement, and is the first step to confiscation.

If a person not a felon and is comfortable carrying, they should be able to carry without interference FRom the authorities.

Remember, an armed society is a polite society!

Hey why vote in a poll if you have no opinion???? Stupid Americans - the same ones that voted for the clown in the WH a second time.

I think the school knowing that you carry is best for everyone. Suppose it is stolen? And I don’t consider giving the school notice of your carry is an infringement.

Bull manure poll.

Should be worded to reflect reality: Do you think people who have state issued concealed carry licenses (who must be over 21 years of age to obtain such a license) should be allowed to carry guns on college campuses?

Bet the percentages would be reversed.

As my grandaddy used to say, "Figures don't lie, but liars can figure."

I don't think "giving" your school notice is an infringement either, but that's not what would happen.

You would be forced under penalty of law to give such information. It won't be voluntary. You would be threatened with fines and/or imprisonment, even for inadvertent violation.

It is absolutely NOBODY’S business if a person chooses to carry. To carry or not to carry is a personal choice, and (save for the no felon prohibition) is not subject to governmental oversight regulation or rule, IMHO.

What if it is stolen? Any competent gun owner would have the serial number written down, and should report it stolen. End of story.

With respect to giving the school your “notice of intent to carry” is an inFRingement, “Excuse me?”

The beauty of concealed carry is that no one knows you are carrying. That is a reason, in and of itself, to not advertise your carry. To anyone!

Being “forced under penalty of law to give such information” IS inFRingement!

You know, if you don't wanna pack a gun on those doggy jaunts (although I do when I walk my aging Newfoundland these days) you might consider one of THESE because they work really well on dogs just by pushing the button and the loud electrical noise, plus they work well if you have to use them but they don't kill. Do you have a ccw permit for FL? If not and you're anywhere near Miami, I'd be happy to give you the class for free. Read my home page.

I'm a couple days late to the thread but here's my feelings on this 'Gun Free Campus' stuff - and screw the poll results. In my 60+ years I've been on a few College - University Campuses. And all except for one(1) I never knew where 'The Campus' began or ended as there wasn't exact 'boundary'.

These College - Universities have included but are not limited to:

So where to 'carry' or not would be impossible to know until you get to The Quad or some 'main building(s)', field house, or stadium.

Disclosure: Personally I wasn't 'lucky' enough to go to College as I grew up a poor white boy (when poor was really flucking POOR!). So I had to learn Mechanical Engineering 'the old fashioned way' - On The Job Training (I was what was called back then a 'Practical Engineer', but not by myself I could never do that). So I visited these places either through work, my locality, or where our daughter went to college -- she has a BS Degree :-)

Oh, and with Barry's 'old school', the Univ of Chicago, I DID 'Carry' when I had to go there. It was a two year Const project in the early 1980's and I had to go through very bad Chi hoods to get there. Our Company owner was 100% okay with carrying into these areas of Chi, even 'packing' while in the office. No 'leave it in the car' bull (hell, he prolly had two-three guns in his desk).

(1) The One exception is The College of DuPage (aka: COD). Our local two year Community College. It's boundary by its location make 'the campus' clearly defined (A very good school btw).
