Gonzaga students say police stole their guns | www.kirotv.com
The "police" who stole their guns were "campus security"... Not the "real" police.
This one ain't over, yet.
I want to know under what authority they "seized the guns"? There is no law banning possesion of firearms on college campuses. I can see how the school could have asked them to leave campus (but one report I read said they are in off-campus appartments), but what law were they violating to get their guns confiscated? I hope they get some money out of this deal and send a message to colleges across the state.
Under the Barney Fife rookie card Big League Chew authority... I believe.
Can you say lawsuit??
And hopefully a BIG settlement . . .
Too bad they are seniors because I'm thinking a free ride for having their 2A rights violated. Maybe they'll go on for their Masters and Doctorates :thumbup:
No, I think the school is legally authorized to request them not have guns on campus, and legally within their right to take disciplinary action. The 2A does not apply to the school as a private entity. That being said, they can not "confiscate" their guns just because they violated school policy. Give them back, or charge them with a crime.
I don't see how private security can charge them with anything
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE !!!!!
UPDATE: KREM 2 News in Spokane is reporting that Gonzaga security officers on Tuesday returned two firearms to students Daniel McIntosh and Erik Fagan that had been seized two weeks ago following a confrontation with a would-be burglar who was scared off when McIntosh drew his pistol.
The firearms will be kept by their attorney, the report said.

Support for Gonzaga students nearly 3-to-1 over college, according to poll
The Seattle Times is running an unscientific poll in its on-line edition that shows supporters of two Gonzaga University students who were put on probation after using a gun to defend their off-campus residence from a convicted felon last month outnumber their critics nearly 3-to-1.

STILL TIME TUESDAY TO WEIGH IN ON THIS
If the coppers that took the guns had firearms, wouldn't that be ARMED ROBBERY????
I talked to a Keizer Bi-mart employee today that is a cousin to the father of one of the Gonzaga students and :
Apartment is allegedly off campus but owned by the University-
Allegedly the rental agreement from the school states that no firearms are allowed on premises, which students claim they were never given copies of-
After initial discussions with police around 11:00 pm, students went to sleep. At 2:00 am campus security banged on the door, and when there was no answer they used their key to let themselves in. Immediately began searching the apartment for firearms and found the shotgun. Security went into the bedroom and seized Glock handgun and could not even figure out how to get it out of the holster.
Both students are on probation and have not had their firearms returned to them yet.
Guess the University would have rather had the intruder, who was later arrested for having multiple outstanding warrants, rob / injure / who knows what to the students than to have them defend themselves.
Her relative did have a conceal carry permit for the glock.
We are just one major incident away from you know who issuing an executive order of Martial Law and anybody at anytime could face this exact same scenario.....
Actually CNN uncovered some information.
The University leases the apartments, and then issues them out to students. They don't own the property at all.
The worm turns in an unusual case of accidental mainstream journalism
Did you just call me a 'worm'?
Unlawful confiscation of their firearms is illegal, that single point is theft, and if under intimidation, it is armed robbery. Technicalities do not count and they could win this and quite possibly get both of those campus"cops" charged with felonies. I hope they get a good attorney and push for that.
I hope not. Crucify those campus goons they call campus cops.
It's a common term meaning that new data has been uncovered :bluelaugh:
How disappointing, I was hoping you just imagined a giant earthworm typing on a laptop with his tail. That would be far more entertaining. :laugh:
