Forbidden firearms

On Monday night, the Univer-
sity chapter of the College Lib-
ertarians raffled off a $200 gift
certificate for the purchase of a
gun at a shop in Dexter, Mich.
But the winner won't be able to
bring the prize to the next weekly
meeting of the College Libertar-
ians in the Michigan League.
A University Board of Regents
ordinance prohibits the posses-
sion of firearms on University
property.
"This is a weapons-free cam-
pus," Department of Pubic Safety
spokeswoman Diane Brown said.
The ordinance says "no person
shall, while on any property owned
leased or otherwise controlled by
the Regents of the University of
Michigan: possess any firearm or
any other dangerous weapon as
defined in or interpreted under
Michigan law."

Brown said many people think
the recently-revised state weap-
ons policy allows them to carry
a weapon on campus with a con-
cealed weapons permit
The regental ordinance says
otherwise.
The document specifies that the
provision againstbhaving aweapon
on campus applies even to those
who have a permit to carry a con-
cealed weapon.
LSA sophomore Eric Plourde,
president of the University chap-
ter of the College Libertarians,
said he disagrees with the Univer-
sity's policy.
"It's not about the amount of
guns on campus," Plourde said.
"It's about having the freedom to
defend yourself if you choose to.
By having a policy of having no
concealed guns on campus, you
take the guns out of the hands of

law-abiding citizens, while crimi-
nals will still continue to carry a
gun."
The ordinance does contain
some exceptions. Police officers,
both from the Department of Public
Safety and other agencies, can keep
their guns with them on campus.
So can people participating in
a military ceremony or a training
program authorized by the Uni-
versity. There's also an exception
for hunting, so long as the hunt-
ing is authorized by the Univer-
sity.
The ordinance also gives the
director of DPS the right to waive
the ban "based on extraordinary
circumstances."
