"They say they have no reason to believe Gallaher was planning to harm herself or anyone else."


Then give her damn gun back and leave her alone.:steamed:

Property owners have the right to tell you not to come on their property with a gun. If you are going to take a gun somewhere, you need to make sure you understand the laws on doing so.

I'm surprised it's a felony.

gallaher told her roommate that she got the gun from a former boyfriend who had connections to a gang.

. . . . .

fsu police say guns are not allowed on campus at all, with or without a permit.

In the great state of Louisiana, your dorm room is considered your domicile. Therefore, while you can't carry on campus (yet) you can keep a gun in your dorm room and transport it between your car (constitutionally protected) and your dorm room.

When I was in college (in Mississippi) my dorm room looked like a sporting goods store. I kept my 7mm mag deer rifle, my Ruger .22 single six, by Super Blackhawk, and my Security Six .357, all my reloading equipment, a hunting bow, a target bow, and I don't know how many cans of Hercules 2400 and Blue Dot, in my room.

I would be under the jail these days I guess. :supergrin:

Hmmm... I live in Florida and work at a college. I did know it was illegal to have a gun on campus but didn't know it was a felony.

My dorms last year had some rule like that but I had no idea it was law. I'm glad they never found my glock 34 or my 500 pump! Looking back on it though it would have been stupid to be unarmed considering the crime rates in central Florida.

A little more info at this link (http://www.wtxl.com/content/breakingnews/story/FSU-Student-arrested-for-firearm-possession/sRCTOHUav0up9ZE8Idkl-w.cspx).
The student was charged with two counts of possession of a weapon or firearm on school property. Per the campus cops they claim the student had a silver 25 Caliber, Raven Arms P-25 hand gun and a 7" blade.
In Florida, it is illegal to own or carry a firearm on a school campus, but it is legal to own a common pocketknife, but according to police, Gallaher's knife was clearly not a pocketknife. There was no ammunition for the gun in the room.

"If you're on campus, you're in violation," said FSU Deputy Police Chief, Jim Russell. "If the dirt you're standing belongs to FSU, or any secondary institution, you're in violation."

A lifetime ago I lived in on campus apartments (not a dorm) and I kept my G22 with me. There was plenty of gang activity on campus and campus police was ill equiped and unwilling to deal with it.

I don't see the connection to the "Political Issues" forum. Carry Issues. GNG. Civil Rights. This topic is misplaced.

Yup.

Old RickD has a personal issue with me. Pretty aparent when he took a beating in a prior thread on here, leaves for a bit, then comes back and raises this thread which was buried several pages deep.

The logical conclusion? RickD was checking up on my posts/threads. Why? By this weak post of his, it seems he was looking for ANY way to claw at me.

Not very mature, and not very honorable.

If you're butt hurt because you can't stand in a logic based discussion, or are unable to back up your statements with fact, so be it. Be the bigger person. Learn and grow.

Nope. I'm referencing RickD's, interactions with me. The posting history is self explaining.

Agreed.

Related to the subject: I'm all for allowing CC on campus. If a person is deemed responsible enough to carry a concealed handgun in the great big world off campus, there is no reason to assume that they will lose their mind and become irresponsibly dangerous the moment they cross an invisible boundary and set foot on campus.

That being said, I get the argument for prohibiting guns from being stored in dorms. While the gun owner may be responsible, their roommate or RA may not be. In a dorm environment, there is no way to limit access to the room (and the guns therein) when roommates and their idiot friends can come and go as they please, and the RA possesses a master key.

Given that a sizeable number of on-topic, elicited responses to the OP use the words "carry" "keep" "kept" "concealed carry," even "possession" I'd say, yes, this thread belongs in Carry Issues, and would probably have more responses there as well. Yours are not the only off-subject thread topics I've remarked were out of place.

As to the other claims...

[COLOR=Navy]Yup.

[quote]Pretty aparent when he took a beating in a prior thread on here,

TBO means this thread... http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1404445&page=3

And, no, not quite rational for you to make that claim. Given that the last two posts were made by others and did not fall in your favor.

The logical conclusion? RickD was checking up on my posts/threads.

When I log onto GT (every few days), I go first to GNG, then Carry Issues, then PI. And I go thread by thread to see what interests me. That I would have gone to and commented on a thread where you snarkly belittle Wake_Jumper who was simply relating a personal story, is un-notable. That I would respond to your attack(s) on me is quite normal behavior.

ANY way to claw at me.
Dude, have you seen your sarcastic thread titles? Talk about claws. :rofl:

Not very mature, and not very honorable.

Self-defense is both mature and honorable. Snarkiness? Not so much.
