I listened in on the Dean’s meeting with the sign people, here is the transcript:

Dean: We need a sign saying this is a weapon free zone

Sign People: What do you want on it?

Dean: I have 3 requests… 1) No bowie knives 2) No snub nosed revolvers 3) No nunchucks

At Colorado’s three largest institutions of higher learning, there are large caches of student-owned weaponry that would be the envy of many police departments.

Doesn’t look to me like too secure of a lockup.  It looks more like a closet.  Who knows though, maybe that closet is inside a vault type room with armed guards.

Students with proper identification, a clear background check and a claim tag can take them out any time.

Most of the shotguns and rifles are used for hunting getaways on weekends or on holiday breaks, say officials.

Are the students asked about what they are doing with the guns? Or are they divulging that information voluntarily?  It would be pain if you got interrogated every time you wanted to get your gun(s) out to go target shooting or hunting.

Before they are deposited into the locker, the weapons are unloaded by the students, and the ammunition is stored for them as well.

Are the guns expected to be unloaded before you arrive at the university lockup facility? or can you unload them there?  Also, can you carry concealed into the university if you are on your way to the lockup facility?

Is there a limit on the number of guns and the amount of ammo you can store?

What about the type of guns? Could I store NFA items there?

I like the concept behind the idea, although I can see them trying to make you feel like a criminal every time you wanted to get your guns, and questioning your choice of guns.  Hopefully that doesn’t happen though!

Anyone go to a Colorado university that wishes to comment?

SEATTLE – A group of University Of Washington students are being called vigilantes after they armed themselves with handguns and tried to set up patrols on University Avenue and other areas around campus where students have been attacked over the past year.

I hope this works out for them, but without any training at all, walking around looking for trouble just spells disaster in my mind.  I can just picture someone trying to mug one of them and the entire street gets lit up because one of those hot shots in the video that’s all amped up with a hunger for revenge decides to pull out his concealed weapon and proceeds to dump the mag, bullets flying in every direction.
