hooray, UK is a gun free zone!

like the students at virginia tech, who attended classes in a “gun free zone,” i feel much safer knowing that guns are not lawfully permitted on my college’s campus.

    were you aware BYU doesn’t permit guns either? even by the police?

  2. Not entirely correct. I’m faculty at BYU and I know several campus police officers and they carry guns. The student traffic cops who run around writing-up parking violations don’t have anything more dangerous than a hefty flashlight, but the offical campus police are packing heat.

    My bad. I remembered a quote from this article incorrectly.

    The following article summarizes BYU’s gun ban:

    BYU’s ban is in complete violation of Utah legislation.

  4. Well…lets call the ACLU!!! Another private institution is trying to enforce its will on people!

    Well..back to the topic, campus gun laws create as Ted Nugent says, killing zones where people cannot fight back.

  5. I’m not real big on the gun ban at BYU, but I do support the right of a privately-owned, religious institution to govern itself in that fashion. A state-owned and tax-payer funded institution, however, should be a bit more careful about restricting 2nd Amendment rights.

    According to the Utah legislator, his end goal is to nail BYU. He says he’s starting with the UofU for the very reason you cited, it’s easier to nail because it’s a public institution.

    That’s why Pres. Bateman supported the U’s ban; it’s a pre-emptive strike.

  7. […] impossible! how could they have had guns? don’t the criminals know UK is a gun-free zone? Posted by travis in travis, kentucky, crime | […]
