here at cornell univ, no firearms are allowed on campus. this includes in dorms, residence halls, apartments, frat/sorority houses, cars in the parking lot, etc. Residents who "need" to have a weapon on campus (e.g., members of the skeet team, hunters) must register and store their weapons with campus police. you must leave campus immediately after checking out your firearm, and return it to the police as soon as you arrive back on campus. Also, we're not allowed tasers, pepperspray, etc.

whats it like at other schools? particularly schools out west and in the south?

Hey whats up. I took the Handgun Marksmanship PE class last semester. It was pretty cool. Have you taken the rifle or shotgun courses yet?

And yes, our firearms policy is gay. I know one senior living off campus who shoots his AR at the Tompkins County range every week. he's basically the only person I know who shoots regularly here

We are not allowed to bring any firearms within 2 miles of the college. If we break that rule we are not kicked out of college. That would be too good for us. Instead they change all of our previous grades from all semesters to an F. If you're a first year student they turn all your grades to Fs times three. If you show up for class with a sore arm and they discover that it was because you shot a rifle, all they'll do is kick you out of school. If you bring an airsoft they'll fine you $10,000 and force you to take 8:00 AM classes next semester. Slingshots are OK, as long as they have a range of less than 50 feet and fling nerf balls.

Not really. I don't know what the rules are, but I have a handgun in my apartment, which is within about 1000 feet of the nearest college building. I guess if they don't know it can't hurt them, so who cares.

I used to be a college student....a year ago.

But firearms were not allowed on campus and in school dorms.

That said.

I went to school in near Fargo ND....and there was good hunting in the area so, I had a few shotguns, rifles and handguns locked in the truck.

It wasn't a big deal to have other students with shotguns in their cars.

I'm an Embry-Riddle Daytona Beach grad. Riddle is a private school, and more conservative than most. The policy was basically no guns on campus. I even know of a guy that shitcanned from the school for showing off a gun in the dorms. That being said, most of the folks that I was associated with had guns & shot regularly. Of course there was the occaisional liberal female officer candidate who lacked any sort of a clue who said "you don't need that rifle, you shouldn't be allowed to own it." I'm sure she's just blissfully happy somewhere with "meow meow meow meow" running through her pretty little head. Nobody really liked her that much anyway, she just had a really nice body.

I am in Ithaca myself, and while I'm not in College now , I'll throw in a comment. As you said, CU doesn't allow firearms on campus. Neither does IC or TC3. Tasers are illegal in NY; is your thinking on OC based on some campus policy? I've never heard mention of a campus ban on it.

Have you taken one of the shooting classes they offer students, or have those fallen by the wayside the last couple of years? I have heard those have good attendance.
Edit: I see that you answered that.

I don't think you'll fins many campuses anywhere that are very firearm friendly.

Private school, no guns allowed on campus except by permission of the anti gun head of security.

On the bright side, my RA took me up to the range to shoot machineguns. I think he even has an account here.

I went to a boarding prep school in Chattanooga, TN in the late 80's. We could bring and store a shotgun for skeet and hunting in a safe in the Head-Master's office. His policy was that once you were checked out by him as far as safety you could keep your gun under your bed in a case. I'm sure that was NOT official policy and probably doesn't occur today.

As of Nov. 1, 1996, New York state law authorizes people meeting certain criteria to carry pepper spray and to use it for purposes of self-defense. Members of the Cornell community may believe that it is now permissible to carry pepper spray at Cornell. This letter is to clarify that pepper spray is still not allowed on the Cornell campus.

Thats just silly. Guess I'll be sending HER an email. The "campus" is so large that you are effectively eliminating half the county as legal to carry in or on.

And oh, by the way, campus security is not deputized and does not carry firearms. Additionally, they don't answer the panic buttons that are farmed out throughout the campus/dormitories/parking lots/flightline.

ALL colleges will have a no firearms policy, unless its with some school organization. Hell you don't keep personal weapons in the military academies either.

I've never heard of the rule/law pertaining to having a gun with in X number of feet or miles of campus. I highly doubt thats true. Sounds like a urban legend.


I don't worry. I have an apartment, and your car is considered private property in MS and anything you can do in your home you can do in your car (concealed weapon w/ no permit, or store a gun). This applies on campus, you can keep a gun in your car since its your property.

Oregon Schools (And I've researched this) state no guns at all unless for a school sanctioned event. However, Oregon law exempts CHL holders. However, however, I'm sure any of these schools would make life very painful for me if I was ever caught CCW'ing on campus. Much like similar rules at the airport here, they have rules and I would probably be arrested, but those rules have no basis in law. I'll probably beat the rap, but I won't beat the ride...

Small private school in PA.

No firearms whether assembled or disassembled (whatever that means... they don't even know what a receiver is) or ammunition. Actually, no projectiles at all are allowed.


We can no longer store our toys with the campus cops either. Some bonehead left an AK on his bed a few years back and they won't even left students store with the campus cops... as if the two matters were related.

Currently I go to a Community College, so for the most part, it is a non-issue.

However, next year I will be attending a private 4 year school in about an hour and a half from where I live. I can't find any info on Michigan laws regarding firearms on college campuses, so do any of you know anything about that? I know CCW is a no-no.

Better yet, any Hillsdale College students/alumni out there who know what the College's official policy is? I read that illegal or unauthorized possession of firearms is against school policy, what constitutes authorization? If they are a no-no in dorms, are there provisions for storage with the RA/campus cops, etc? It's not going to be a big deal if I have to drive home on weekends to go shoot, but it would be good to know either way.

Purdue has a No firearms policy.

This was a huge problem for me when I was living in the dorms, but I discovered that they don't care about gun parts, just as long as they couldn't tell what it was.

Needless to say I found a way to store them.

And they didn't care if I had ammo or not. RA walked in on me one day while I was putting XM855PD onto strippers. He thought it was a lot, but other than that he didn't care. He did 'confiscate' one round for his collection tho.

No dice on my campus. The web site says that they will expell you from school, and prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law.

After reading the laws on this topic, I don't see how they could prosecute you for anything. Under state law the only places that it is illegal to carry are primary and secondary school property, and the school related functions of those aforementioned establishments. You can't carry anywhere that has a sign posted against carrying, but I've never seen one posted on campus.

College is a dream land. I can't wait to be done with it.
I wonder if they'd let me form a shooting club. In fact I am going to check on it. They have every other kind of club, Liberal Women's club, Gay alliance club, Sistaz....so on and so on. The Democrat club is in big bold letters on the list like every other club,...except the Republican club. The Republican club is in tiny little letters on the list, and is under a seperate heading.

Southern Virginia University here. Firearms are not allowed on campus per school policy, but you can get an exception granted in about 5 minutes by talking to the head of security. He is a former Green Beret, 18D, and a great guy. He let me keep my M1A and AR in my dorm room, so long as I locked them up in a safe I had to move in my closet when I am not home. He also shoots IDPA and I know of several other students who have weapons on campus, including another with an AR. You could keep your firearm locked in your vehicle without an exception, and can even keep ammunition in your room either way. The dean of students is kinda a jerk about firearms, but with the Vice President and Public Safety head guy on our side, the shooters have a few friends here. Unfortunatly there has been some friction on the side of the dean, so we will see what happens in the future when we all have to renew our exemption forms to keep firearms on campus next fall.

Fossil_Fuel, there's a section of NYS Education Law making possession of a firearm on the grounds of Cornell a misdemeanor, even if you have a permit.

CUPD has in the past charged persons who were just driving through campus. I remember such a case from around 1990 -- the guy was simply driving to his home and made the mistake of crossing through campus.
