When I was in college, in the late 70s, (Graduated '80) we were CONSTANTLY reminded about the ramifications of "having a firearm on campus" which after the 1960s was now considered a 'Federal Crime" with GUARANTEED jail time.
EVERY one of us "Country boys" had at LEAST a shotgun in the closet, or buried in our cars or trucks!! And it was probably pretty amazing to anybody watching that we all had to "do Laundry" at the SAME time on nice fall days. Everybody on the floor KNEW we were hunters, when we came back even the city kids would come in to "see how we did," and we didn't even LOCK OUR DOORS back then!
(Although one time after we had the guns put away, broke out the beers, and I was sharpening my hunting knife, with of course a room full of guys wanting to hear the hunting stories, one of the "City Guys" bet me $5 I couldn't stick my knife in the door, and I flung it, and it STUCK! Butt first through the thin veneer of the cheap door but it STUCK. Actually cost me $5 in damages when I finally checked out of that room after 4 years! He didn't pay me but leaving it in the door a few weeks sure did a lot for MANNERS. Guys KNOCKED first after that before they entered THAT room!
"OHMIGOD, didja hear the Polak throws KNIVES at his door?!?!?!"
At the time I even had an (older) Professor of History that used to brag about HIS glory days in college where he and some buddies would sit in the belfrey of his dorm and take pot shots at the wild ducks in the lake behind the dorm with his roomate's Luger, which was even MORE amazing since this professor had been BLIND since birth!
My gosh I must be getting old...
What's even MORE amazing is this was at a small private college in NEW YORK. You know, the SAME state that welcomes you with the signs that tell you about the MANDATORY year in jail if you have an illegal (i.e. just about ANY) handgun?
