    At a disciplinary hearing, a student might be convicted of cheating.  In some cases, they get an F in the class.  That might lead to loss of scholarship, requirement to inform parents or expulsion.

    When I did this at a major state university, some students became very emotional.  Now this would be done with students armed with a handgun?

    Have these people become insane?

    Bill the Butcher was right. I am a nativist, and that is a progressive position.

      from coming to the hearing armed?

      I am an academic and am acquainted with many university campuses across the country.  I have never seen one where the flow of people on or off campus is controlled in any way.  There are no searches, no friskings, and these things aren't really possible.  As it is, the status quo, is that anyone could come to their disciplinary hearing armed.

      The only difference once CCP holders are allowed is that a fraction of those who can come armed will have had background checks.

        This really is not a big deal at all.  If anything, given the VT massacre, the NIU shooting, and the recent shooting (by a Prof. no less) in Alabama, profs. and students might even be justified in wanting to defend themselves.

        No rules or regulations on concealed weapon permit holders would stop a determined shooter.  Do I think everyone should have a gun?  NO!  But do I think responsible people who have the proper permit should be allowed to carry on campus?  YES
