    So, I'm posting this from the USM Portland campus...

    Where I can't legally carry my sidearm.

    I can't even bring it on the property.

    And since I'm a commuter, that means I can't even bring it with me because I have nowhere off-campus to leave it. Which means I'm being deprived of my basic self-defense tool not just during classes, but from the moment I leave the house until the time I get home at night.

    Isn't that something?

    Your on the wrong side of the law if your aim is to carry everywhere you go

    Yes, well aware. The law needs to change.

    Aren't you allowed to turn it over to campus security and pick it up when you leave? That is what I have done in the past.

    Let me elaborate on how the law is a ass. I drive one of those gas tankers you see going down the road. Enough gas to burn down a city if in the wrong hands. Have the knowledge to take terriest right into the ports millions of gallons in there. Have been checked out by FBI, Coast Guard and State Police. My weapon of choice if attacked is a hammer if I can get to it. Would feel lot safer with 380 in my front pocket.

    Guess what, folks, I got some REAL bad advice from USM PD on the Portland campus. Suffice to say, they "don't have the facilities" to store weapons for students while they're in class and they also don't know the law (he thought it was just USM's policy).

    You demand too much. LEOs who know the law? Next you'll want doctors who know how to diagnose illness.

    Wasn't offended in the slightest. I was being a smart-ass.

    But people actually do think we're unreasonable for demanding that law enforcement officers be familiar with the law, like we're out of line somehow. Especially when it comes to harassing us for perfectly legal behavior.

    What happens when you try to send to an @opencarry address? I just tested my own and it worked, but I've had some "disagreements" with my web host in the past.

    Yeah. That's not the site. The links use a mailto tag, which tells your web browser to invoke whatever your default email application or site is. It sounds like your email program isn't working right. You can just send me a PM if there's something you're trying to send one of us.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_X1VkkwIyOs&feature=sub Have you seen this clip yet. Found it on OC Homepage. You may want to send it to your Dean. Just a thought, it would give him something to consider.

    I've been meaning to link a bunch of John Stossel videos on the site. Hadn't seen this one though.

    Edit: I've been considering getting involved with concealedcampus.org even though CC is a compromise of sorts. Allowing CWP holders to carry on campus would be a huge step in the direction towards OC though.
