I'm considering peacefully open carrying on my college campus in ALSubmitted by xcfreek58 on Mon, 05/05/2014 - 21:31
I'm a student at Troy University in Alabama. I don't really care about my standing with the school that I attend, which bans firearms on campus (even though the state doesn't require them to). The Dean of Student Services knows what I have been planning and has told me that I will be arrested for trespassing if I do it. However, no police official has been able to provide me with a law that I will be breaking. Some people who advise me have said that if I open carry on University Avenue (that goes through our campus), I cannot be arrested because it is a public road. Unfortunately, we have not been able to determine if this is a public road maintained by city/state or if it is maintained by the university. This distinction makes all the difference.
If I am arrested, I would like to have people behind me who could defend me in court and sue for wrongful arrest. I don't really understand the whole process, but I am a model student with a 3.8 GPA. I also have a CC permit issued by the county in Alabama in which I reside.
Is there anyone here who could help me or might know someone who could help me? Any advice is appreciated.
