    Please email michael.farfaglia@huskymail.uconn.eduif you are an expert or can recommend one.

    You need not be a published author on the NRA talk circuit - a CT resident gun woner who knows the laws well would be fine - key things you must be able to explain for CT: (1) Open carry and concelaed carry allowed with CT permit. (2) Carry on college campuses breaks no CT law.

    Mike,

    Consider this:

    MEMBERS OF CONNECTICUT LAW ENFORCEMENT HAVE KNOWINGLY AND INTENTIONALLY USED THE CONFIDENTIALITY PROVISIONS SURROUNDING THE APPLICATION, RENEW, AND REVOCATION PROCESS REGARDING CONNECTICUT FIREARMS PERMITS, TO CONCEAL THE UNLAWFUL CONDUCT OF SWORN OFFICERS WHO HAVE PERPETRATED FEDERAL AND STATE CONSTITUTIONAL VIOLATIONS UPON LAW ABIDING CITIZENS OF CONNECTICUT ON A REGULAR AND ONGOING BASIS.

    The arrest was made under the color of law during which property was seized from him without a warrant, which deprived Mr. Goldberg of his rights under the U.S. and State Constitutions. The facts will show that members of the Glastonbury Police Department failed to review the appropriate statutes, conduct a proper investigation, and understand the necessary elements of the criminal charge that was used to arrest Mr. Goldberg together with the fact that there was no reasonable probable cause or justification to subject Mr. Goldberg to the public embarrassment expenses necessary to vindicate himself at considerable expense.

    The firearms laws of the State of Connecticut, as demonstrated by the record and manner in which they are understood, explained and enforced by sworn members of law enforcement, documents the fact that they are unconstitutionally vague and cannot be enforced in a manner that guarantees equal justice for those who possess the required permit to legally carry a pistol or revolver in the State of Connecticut.

    The Glastonbury Police Department and other members of Connecticut Law Enforcement knowingly and intentionally make arrests by applying incorrect criminal statutes to facilitate what amounts to a pattern of law enforcement beliefs that are not supported by the current statutes.

    The Glastonbury Police Department, and other members of Connecticut Law Enforcement, knowingly and intentionally fail to properly train police officers in the provisions of Connecticut Law pertaining to Firearms, and regularly act in an illegal manner by not informing permit holders, instructors, complainants or businesses of the laws pertaining to carrying firearms by an individual in possession of a permit to do so.

    Ask your college administration or police department to answer this question"

    Is this college a SECONDARY SCHOOL?

    The answer should be NO, secondary schools are either MIDDLE, JR. HIGH OR HIGH SCHOOLS.

    If you unsatisfield with the answer, call the State Board of Education in Hartord or find the definition in a dictionary.

    COLLEGES ARE USUALLY DEFINED AS POST SECONDARY SCHOOLS.

    HOPE THIS ANSWERS YOUR QUESTION.





    Sec. 53a-217b. Possession of a weapon on school grounds: Class D felony. (a) A person is guilty of possession of a weapon on school grounds when, knowing that such person is not licensed or privileged to do so, such person possesses a firearm or deadly weapon, as defined in section 53a-3, (1) in or on the real property comprising a public or private elementary or secondary school, or (2) at a school-sponsored activity as defined in subsection (h) of section 10-233a.

    (b) The provisions of subsection (a) of this section shall not apply to the otherwise lawful possession of a firearm (1) by a person for use in a program approved by school officials in or on such school property or at such school-sponsored activity, (2) by a person in accordance with an agreement entered into between school officials and such person or such person's employer, (3) by a peace officer, as defined in subdivision (9) of section 53a-3, while engaged in the performance of such peace officer's official duties, or (4) by a person while traversing such school property for the purpose of gaining access to public or private lands open to hunting or for other lawful purposes, provided such firearm is not loaded and the entry on such school property is permitted by the local or regional board of education.

    (c) Possession of a weapon on school grounds is a class D felony.

    Gotcha.

    I never bothered to lookup the definition of "secondary school". So, according to the law K-12 would be off limits. Anything else is OK.
