The following policy has been circulated to all employees of the college and in fact face to face classes were conducted to make sure everyone knows the policy. It is refreshing to know there is at lease one educational institution that learned from the UCC and other campus tragedies. Firearms on Our Campuses I want to make sure that everyone is aware that faculty, staff, students and members of the general public with concealed weapons permits may legally carry their weapons onto our campuses and into our classrooms. The College Policy 2440 wording that might conceal this fact, saying: “The possession of any firearm, taser, knife with a blade exceeding four (4) inches or illegal weapon, is prohibited on Chemeketa Community College property or college controlled property, in accordance with both State and Federal Law.” It should really say “except in accordance with State and Federal Law,” as it’s the State Law that is allowing concealed weapons on campus. For the record, this isn't a recent change in the policy, but a clarification in the wording of the policy. I applaud Chemeketa.
