An HVCC student was arrested on campus this afternoon, suspended from school and charged with a misdemeanor for allegedly having an unloaded .22 rifle in his (or her) vehicle (along with a loaded magazine clip elsewhere in the vehicle). According to the college's director of public safety, the gun had been left "in plain view," and "We are extremely appreciative of the diligence of the student who initially reported this to us." Seems more like a nosy parker to me.
The college said it has "a zero tolerance policy for possession of firearms on campus," citing the state penal law, which I was surprised to see (Section 265.01) bans guns "at any school, college or university."
If a bad guy chose to conceal a gun, however, for the purpose of committing the kinds of mass murder we have unfortunately seen at campuses around the country, there's no way HVCC or other schools would find out until too late. So the ban is unenforceable when it might matter, and just serves to disarm law-abiding students and faculty who might be able to intervene to stop a massacre.
I see the U.S. Supreme Court today decided to take up a case which could overturn state gun laws, like this one, that appear on their face to violate the Second Amendment.
