Sac State Murder

Hello, I am wondering on the progress of your group. Recently there was a murder at my campus dorm. I found our policy for handguns on the dorms. Are there currently any campuses that allow weapons in their on-campus dorms or on campus? It would seem like for me to be able to carry on campus I would not onlyhave to pursue the school's policy, I would have to amend this law. Any one with any background on this or in a similar situation? Thanks

I believe there are a few of the Tennessee campuses that firearms are not prohibited. Carry would require a HCP, of course. I think htere are campuses all accross the country that allow firearms in dorms and carry.

And not a single proffessor has been shot at any of them. :what:
