    They had no cause or right to enter or confiscate their guns. This was a civil matter at this point, not a Criminal matter and where do these campus cops get their authority to blow off the constitution. :mad:

    With all the attention, I don't think GU will end up expelling them, but they have the right to. Their property, their rules. If you don't like it go somewhere else or rent from someone else. As far as campus security entering the off campus residence and confiscating two firearms, they are lucky they didn't get shot. I love that they reported the guns stolen to SPD. They screwed up big time there.

    Gonzaga may re-evaluate weapons policy, says president

    In a Saturday statement, Gonzaga President Thayne M. McCulloh revealed that this week’s controversy over possible sanctions against two students who discouraged an intruder at gunpoint from their off-campus apartment has opened the door for “thoughtful evaluation” of the university’s weapons policy, the Spokane Spokesman-Review reported.

    Just so everyone knows, Gonzaga is located in Spokane......

    This is the same place that saw the two thugs beat down the WW2 vet to death this year. What happened to that town?

    I would imagine any competent lawyer would have a field day with this. Just exactly what law was being broken that would justify a raid (that's what it was) at 230am by Campus Police? Would you let your landlord confiscate your property for violating a rental agreement? If I was any one of those students I'd say bring it on!

    Why am I not surprised that the OP incorrectly summarized the article in an inflammatory manner? Under current policy, the students could be expelled, but a reading of the article gives the impression that this will not happen. Then there is the assumption that a "thug" tried to get money from them. Does the OP personally know this "thug"? According to the article, an "apparently homeless man" knocked on the door. Is it possible that this person could be mentally ill? Or maybe desperate. He might be a thug, but I don't know that as a fact.

    The OP is certainly entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.

    Did we read the same article? The "homeless guy" was a convicted felon that was arrested after the incident on outstanding felony warrants (one conviction was for rioting with a deadly weapon!!). He even showed them his monitoring ankle bracelet. Now why would he do that? Just another misunderstood-under-privileged-just-give-me-a-house-and-I'll-be-a better-human-being? I'm sure he just wanted a quarter so he could check in with his Parole Officer...

    That would be the sensible thing to do as well as relieve those campus cops of their badges and jobs.
    They would do well getting a job in Beijing.

    Just don't let them know if you're packing.

    Okay, put the dirtbag away for a very long time. The article I originally saw from a Spokesman writer was missing a good deal of information.

    America's campuses are free rape zones because predators know few if any co-eds carry a gun

    It's amazing to read posts on a gun forum from people who obviously live in ivory towers and apparently have never been on the mean streets

    Evidently you have to choose between getting a degree or getting dead at Gonzaga
