    I was just checking the website of a Baptist University.
    The student handbook states NO Weapons are allowed on campus.

    Is this policy good, bad or indifferent

    Whether it's good or not, it is consistent with public universities, for now, anyway. There laws are changing around here where people with CCW can carry on public college campuses. Of course, the campuses are fighting back by requiring more certifications and classes than a regular CCW requires.

    Except in Texas. :)

    Except in Texas.

    In Texas it is illegal to ban concealed carry of a legally owned forearm on a public college or university campus and it is equally illegal to require any additional training or certification over and above that necessary to qualify for a License To Carry.

    And when I was invited to preach in chapel at a well known Texas Seminary, I respectfully declined because of their "no firearms" policy.

    All a "gun free zone" is, is a criminal protection zone where the law abiding are victimized by both the school and the criminal who doesn't obey such rules.

    Very bad. I would never recommend a student attend a kill zone where only the criminals are armed.

    Just a random thought; how concerned would you be with these sheeple (profs and/or students) having immediate access to a weapon that could destroy that which they fear so much -- IE a conservative??
    Granted, they probably would NEVER consider carrying, but there are always exceptions. Also those idiotic geniuses(?) who cannot survive without some form of drinking hazing and no common sense.

    Edited to add: With the above exceptions, I am all for campus carry!

    I was just at LU using their library (again). They are all for CCW. So I wore my S&W proudly albeit hidden under my sweater hoping that a few people might even notice it... b/c I could! I've never felt safer on a college campus.

    PS. On my way home, we had to stop by the mall. New sign on door: "no guns". Had to go back to my car and take it off. But I almost left it on. Felt very unsafe after that. Especially when I had to tell the dude lighting up his cancer stick right when he walked out the door and my prego wife and kids are following him that he needed to get away from the door before he blows his cancer on other people. (I forgot I wasn't packing)
