VT now has a blanket firearms ban

Post by Trey45 » Tue Aug 28, 2007 12:17 pm

VCDL Member Dave Yates researched, and found the new rule text. The text
doesn't mention any punishment for visitors who fail to comply with
removal request, but most likely it would be a trespass charge.

If somehow the University discovers that a permit holder is carrying
a gun (that should only happen if the permit holder is carelessness
or stupid), the permit holder will be asked to remove the gun from
the campus immediately. Failure to do so may lead to legal and/or
disciplinary action.

The areas where the ban is in effect is given in the wording of the
below. Carry in parking lots, sidewalks, grassed areas, etc. look to
be allowed.

The applicable University text reads (in part):


2.2 Prohibition of Weapons The university employees, students, and
volunteers, or any visitor or other third party attending a sporting,
entertainment, or educational event, or visiting an academic or
administrative office building or residence hall, are further
prohibited from carrying, maintaining, or storing a firearm or weapon
on any university facility, even if the owner has a valid permit,
when it is not required by the individual's job, or in accordance
with the relevant University Student Life Policies.

Any such individual who is reported or discovered to possess a
firearm or weapon on university property will be asked to remove it
immediately. Failure to comply may result in a student judicial
referral and/or arrest, or an employee disciplinary action and/or
I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not our children's children, because I don't think children should be having sex.

I'm not sure if thats good or bad. Its very sad that are students can't go to school safely nowadays. Maybe someone with a loaded gun could of stopped some of the shootings from happening or from getting worse.(good gun guy) Its very hard to make a call wether to ban guns or carry guns to protect themselves. To me gun control is shooting back at these bad guys. Just banning guns in certain areas or in all areas won't stop it.
