Glad to see it, but there will be many on my campus that will pitch a fit when they find out! I am surrounded by so many educated people that have lost all ability to think and reason.

Not to distract the conversation, but did they try to pass this last year and did it fail at some point? Lastly, does anyone know if the wording allows it on federally owned property?

It states anywhere the permit holder is legally allowed to be, except where firearms are prohibited by federal law, like oak ridge and TVA nuclear facilities.

The law they tried to pass last year was to allow college employees to carry on campus if I am not mistaken. It may have been a couple of years ago. Either way, this one backs off the carry into the building idea and allows you to have a gun in your vehicle on campus, locked away out of sight.

Yeah, it is really going to help me to have my gun locked in my car in the parking lot 1/2 mile away when some lunatic busts into my classroom and starts shooting while I'm giving a lecture to 150 students. I guess I could politely ask him to stop while I go get my gun, or just throw some dry erase markers and board erasers at him as they are the only "weapons" I'm allowed. Don't get me wrong, this is a small step in the right direction but I am afraid that once this passes and becomes law, many lawmakers will pat themselves on the back and think the job of restoring ALL of our rights to carry and protect ourselves is done.

I for one, am glad it's making its way thru. I am most vulnerable traveling to work. Now I will have the means to protect myself if need be.

No more than a person telling another what they can keep in thier personal property.

Glad they're doing it. However, it'll have little effect on me. I park in a public garage and walk to the office. I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving my weapon in that location.

Nice to know of the option, though.

There is already government say about your property if you have a business... You can't allow smoking inside. You can't ban races, genders or homos. You have to comply with ADA. Simple fact is, when you own a business, you don't have full control of your property.

the issue is that you may be employed with one of these companies and have to go to work to do your duties. However you will leave at some point. seems to me if you have the permit you should be allowed to carry in your car. Why should you have to leave your gun at home, everytime you go to work. we spend most of our time at our jobs, so it makes the permit less useful when you tell someone no guns on the premisses. Whats in your car is your business.
