    It is.

    But gun owners are not a protected class.

    Apparently you can discriminate under the law, as long as it isn't against a specifically protected class

    Probably make for more mature dorm neighbors. Sounds like a good thing :)

    Ah, so discrimination and prejudice are still OK, it's just that those discriminated against change with the whims of political fashion.

    Much clearer now. :rolleyes:

    I got news for you. The world revolves around discrimination.

    At work we 'discriminate' against those who are habitually tardy. At college they discriminate against those who get bad grades (they either don't let them in, or they kick them out). At the restaurant I just visited they discriminate against those who have paid for their meals and can get free soda refills and those who just enter to play video games who don't. Most restaurants discriminate against those who wear no shoes and no shirt.

    There are just a handful of discrimination types that are illegal: race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, nation of origin.

    As 'packing a gun' isn't listed above, putting students who have CCW all in one doorm is NOT the same as putting all students of a specific religion in one dorm. It is similar to putting all the athletes in one dorm or all the engineers in one dorm, or all the people with pet goldfish in one dorm.


    That being said, what is the plan for when a student who is living in a 'regular' dorm turns 21 and gets his CCW....are they going to force him to move?

    I wish where I lived only allowed CCWs. Then I might hang out with my neighbors.

    If you don't like it, sue the federal government?

    Also age (Age Discrimination in Employment Act) and disability (Americans with Disabilities Act [Bush I] and ADA Amendments Act of 2008 [Bush II]). Not to mention the Genetic Information Non-Disclosure Act. But yes, gun ownership (or gun owners, or concealed carry permit holder) is not a protected class. :)

    I think they are on to something.

    Let's do this on a larger scale.

    The US should buy Baja California from Mexico. I think they offered it to us for peanuts a few years back.

    We make it the 51st state, and move all the anti-s there. We put a policeman on every corner, paid with their state and personal property taxes. In fact, state income tax will be 100% of whatever is left over from their federal tax obligations. Everyone will receive an EBT card with just what the state believes they need to get by. No rich, no poor.

    The new state will control every aspect of their lives.

    -Only 3 channels of (state controlled) TV which go off air at 10:00 p.m. so everyone gets enough sleep.

    - No fast food restaurants, so no one gets fat. 10 ounce sodas only.

    - No gun or knife ownership. Steak knives are limited to one per person and may have only a 3.5" blade.

    - Baseball bats must be registered with a proficiency test administered.

    - Locks will be illegal as they would impede the police' ability to ensure no one owns contraband material which they could use to commit a crime.

    - residents who feel someone else has more than they do can submit requests for personal property realignment at any time.

    - health care and child care would be free, paid for of course by state and personal property taxes. Doctors could prescribe mandatory medications for anyone they deem is left or right of center.

    - all goods would be rationed equally to prevent envy which might lead to a crime.

    What a wonderful place this would be for the folks who do not believe in the US Constitution or Bill of Rights. They would still be citizens, but of course would not be bothered by free thinking, freedom loving Americans. They would be out of our hair and we would be out of theirs, just like at the University.
