Updated policy – George Mason University

How can they be so stupid? These are the people charged with educating our young adults – for PAY. It seems to me there should be a reasonable expectation of competency.

GMU revised its policy July 23, 2007. After VA Tech. The policy still applies to students, faculty, and staff. It does not apply to visitors. Nor is there a punishment mechanism stated in the policy

What’s more, and what they can’t seem to understand, is that bad guys don’t follow policy!

Oh, and by the way – the change? The old policy, GMU Policy 56, adopted in 1995, said:

II. Policy Statement

To protect the George Mason University community from the threat of violent acts, all weapons concealed or otherwise are prohibited ona ll owned or leased properties of George Mason University, with the exception of law enforcement officials appointed pursuant to Chapter 2 (29.1-200 et esq) of Title 29.1 and Chapter 17 (22-232 et esq) of title 23 of the Virginia State Code.” (emphasis mine)

The new policy is here. Note the only difference is the policy statement.
