I'd carry w/o regard of the policy. Better judged by 12 than carried by 6.

@ hurricane46, your simplification is kind of dumb. If the student in question was going to kill the professor in retaliation for a poor grade, said student would do so without regard to law.

Aint America great, we get to pick and choose what we like and dont like from the various bible translations.. or even those who have extra revelations, AND we of course with out natural different and various G-d rights pick and choose which laws we like to follow.

But many still reserve the right as being from the right side of the aisle , to chastise and bad mouth "others' or as the right concludes those who are not like us in some way [ but mostly minorities of some kind] .

Besides as tax payers only those on the right can decide what an institution can or cant do, cause you sure cant discriminate against anyone on the right by not allowing them there righties to be able to discriminate against others.

I would point out there was not injunction against open Carry, nor did I see any prohibition against RPG's-- never know when some jack booted law enforcement person might want you to obey a law [ OMG ] that you dont agree with coming at you with a vehicle [ certainly possible as I see may police cars just driving around LR] or in Case ISIS parachutes a armed vehicle into a campus.

And yest the student could bring a rabid armadillo or aardvark into class and have it attack the professor. Certainly the news is full of news about these incidents, certainly then making it against the law on guns on campus would not add anything. Let me see I have some real ideas on drugs, embezzlement, DWI, etc.... why have laws in a society with the highest incarceration population in the world. think of all the jobs we can have by more prisons.

I want to carry my weapon into courthouses, government buildings and missile silos. Why do courts restrict concealed or open carry against our constitution? Even Scalia didnt allow this.

I applaud the UA system for this ruling. Cooler heads prevail over concealed heat.

Well the NRA claims that more guns everywhere results in fewer guns going off and less gun violence, now following NRA logic if everyone ate more beans there would be less flatulence everywhere.

It's interesting how libs are all for "choice" when it comes to killing an unborn child, but not when someone desires to have the means to defend themselves from bad guys. Just one more reason I'm proud to call myself a conservative.
