i agree that there should be alot less areas that we are not allowed to carry. if ppl with concealed carry permits were allowed to carry on campus, shooting sprees like the one at Virginia Tech would be stopped alot sooner and lives would be saved.
oh and my gun is not loaded when i leave it in my truck at school. the mag stays with me

I am a big advocate of concealed carry on campus.

I carry my weapon openly or concealed. I honestly depends on where I am going. If I am out running around during the hot summer months I will openly carry my pistol as it is a pain in the ass to conceal. However when it is winter and cold around hear you will always see me with a hoodie or jacket on and there is always a pistol hidden. As far as I am concerned concealing is best because what people don't know wont hurt them. Hence why I will carry anyplace there is not a metal detector. Though the law here says no carry in church's, k-12 schools, and federal buildings. As far as a business posting a no weapons ban they can fuck off if I have my weapon concealed and they don't know about it. The worst that they can do is kick me out.
