    Oregon Court of Appeals rejects university system's ban on guns on campus | OregonLive.com

    Hope this is the start of a revolution in gun rights.

  3. Yet another reason I like Oregon. I've written to my various lawmakers insisting that they respect this court decision and not try to push a constitutional amendment on us to "fix" this. (It'll fail, but why waste the effort?)

  5. Sadly, at least in Oregon, it is still legal for schools to put "no gun" clauses in their employement contract. So the teachers (or professors, whichever,) can't carry, but students and visitors (over age 21, with CHL in cities that don't allow open carry,) can.

    And don't forget that since criminals don't obey the law, you can bet that they will be carrying on campus too.

  7. Yup. I have written a letter to my elected officials, and the leaders of the various levels of the Democratic Party in Oregon to encourage them to *NOT* take a stand on this as a party matter. That will just alienate people who are very "on the edge" Democrats who only need one issue to stop voting for Democrats. I'd much rather see the Democrats in office be pro-gun Democrats; but if we can at least get the anti-gun ones to hold their tongues if for no other reason than political self-preservation, I'm open to that, too. :-D

    I hear Oregon state university will still threaten expulsion if their students carry. That university is corrupt to the core...just look at what they are trying to do to the Robinson family

  9. The Oregon University system *DID* expel someone for this, that expulsion was what caused this lawsuit, which struck down their "administrative rules" as not valid.

    I'm sure they will CLAIM that they will expel you, just as some cities in Oregon still have "you cannot carry firearms no matter what" laws on the books; or how Portland Public Schools has "no firearms - even to CHL holders" signs on the doors. It doesn't mean they can enforce it.
