“Owning a gun in a college environment hasnt turned me into a drunk school shooter, I havent settled any disputes with .40 cal hollow points, and I certainly havent posed any threat to any LEOs trying to do their jobs.I hope NH can get this cluster sorted out. It would be a disservice to college students everywhere to do otherwise.”  – commenter BT here.

  1. I agree with BT’s sentiment.

    That said, it’s disappointing that BT has apparently not learned how to correctly use punctuation in whatever college he’s currently attending.

    • Latin for “in place of the parent.” It is a legal doctrine that applies to those who oversee children when the parents are not present. There are several court decisions describing the limits of the powers of a public school’s ability to act or make policy for the “safety” of children attending the school.

      At a college or university, where students have attained the age of majority and can also be old enough to be in possession of handguns of their own accord, things are going to get much more interesting WRT CCW.

  2. Considering what I remember from college. It included a lot of drinking, parting, recreational drug use, domestic fights. So I can kind of see the hesitance of letting student carry on campus. Not that I agreeing with it but I can see the logic be hide it. I was an off campus student meaning I just left my gun in the car, I felt no need to actually take it to a class. The only encounter I had with campus security was when 1. my car was broken into [luckly my gun wasn’t stolen] and 2. I got a parking ticket. But then again I didn’t take any night classes and I didn’t have to walk to a dorm in the dark, plus that was some time ago things may have changed.

  3. No one expects or would tolerate a 22 year old carpenter or electrician that acts like a child. This is indeed different for college students, and I don’t understand why. Kids shouldn’t go to college. Adults should go to college. If the school or their own parents would just stop in loco parentis-ing maybe they’d be forced to grow a little. Treat it like a job. Show up, do your work, and don’t let it affect your personal life and don’t let your personal life affect it. If that can’t be managed then you should pay the price for whatever trouble you get into, and enough of that in the cultural memory will maybe help it to change. College students need more rigorous coursework so they don’t have the TIME or ENERGY to be morons. College towns need paddy wagons and bigger drunk tanks, and maybe some technology for remote booking and citation issuing on the street. Or maybe more adult criminals to mug the stumbling and vulnerable prey between 2 and 4am. Not more parenting. Time for that is over.
