  • Serious question: Are there many students 21-years old+ who live in the dorm?

    /For the amount of money we spent on putting our son in the dorm at UCCS during his freshman year, we could have rented a decent one-bedroom apartment close to campus.

    One semester in the dorms was more than two years rent PLUS food at University of Arizona. My apartment was decent and just over a quarter mile to campus. I shared an apartment with two other guys and our combined rent was $475 a month.

    Back to the relevant subject... I was a very conservative Mormon for a long stretch in my life, and I lived with other conservative Mormons in college. Never once did a conversation ever come up where we felt we should be allowed to conceal carry at school because the world is so dangerous. That's some serious fringe thinking.

    If you're so afraid of society that you need to carry a gun everywhere you go, you should do us all a favor and stay home. Paranoid people with guns are dangerous animals.

    It's not so much as needing a gun on campus, it's people who live off-campus who attend classes there feeling the need to carry through their neighborhoods on their way to and from school. Your right to self-defense shouldn't be limited because you park at and attend classes on campus in the evenings.

    And this number is not nearly as large as you make it out to be. Your average college student doesn't really care about concealed carry, and doesn't really fret about his mortality.

    Don't come to Missouri then. They've been pushing this idiocy for quite a while now (allowing CCW on college campuses).

    I honestly don't see how that's going to be anything more than a liability for the universities.
  • C'mon ladies, don't be shy. You totally want to bunk with these guys!

    Also, if one needs a gun to feel safe, one should move somewhere civilized.
  • OK, which of you concealed-carry-loving farkers shot the Obvious tag?
  • I think the age thing has a lot to do with it. I don't know very many people who lived in dorms when they were 21. A lot of freshman did, and some sophomores, but usually at that point people have moved out. The university I work at even encourages it, since they lack adequate dorm space for all the people that want it (but are too stupid to build larger ones go figure).

    So for someone to want to live in this dorm they have to be:

    1) Over 21 and still living in a dorm.
    2) Have a CCW permit.
    3) Give enough of a shiat to apply for this and deal with the bureaucracy.

    Highly unsurprising the number of people who meet that criteria are "zero". Most people that wish to have guns in their home probably just move off campus.
  • What would you expect? Colleges are bastions of lib-think, and liberals hate guns.

    And neither should your right to be a bedwetter afraid of all the world outside your mother's basement!

    Have you been to Boulder? There isn't a single spot in Boulder that's anywhere NEAR "need a gun to feel safe."
  • Oh do people still have guns? I thought that 0bama was going to take your guns if he won reelection.

    Well, he was reelected. Did he take your guns?

    Hmm?
  • If one needs to worry about what some other student carries tucked out of sight where one will never see it to feel safe, one should try being more civilized.
  • Clearly a liberal media conspiracy.
  • The only people that own or want to own guns have small penises or no penises, am I right or what?

  • So, if no one has applied to live there, does the University have to keep an empty dorm building just to satisfy the pinheads in the NRA? These are probably the same pinheads who complain that the University gobbles up too much of of "their" tax money. Makes perfect sense to me.

    And she needs an AK47 to do that?

    I hope that's some parody and not someone who is actually serious.
  • Um, you can't buy a handgun if you are under 21. At least not in the Midwest. By then; I'd expect them to find their own apartment.

    Even if the handgun was given to them; you have to be 21 to buy the ammo.

    And doesn't have anyone yet in their lives for whom they would kill to protect.

    As I understand it, creating separate housing was something the university did of its own accord. I'm sure the NRA would be perfectly content for CHL holders to live in the "general population."
