Of course this raises an interesting wrinkle... are residence hall rooms homes? Those people sign leases and reside there so I'd argue they are. Yet that is one of the places where firearms are explicitely prohibited per state law in Michigan. Wonder how long before some aspiring student decides to sue using McDonald as the basis for their lawsuit... I don't see any way they can lose given that precedent.


State laws can be even more interesting. Colorado law apparently considers your personal vehicle as an extension of your home. Partially as a result, it is legal within the state to keep a loaded handgun in your vehicle without a concealed carry permit so long as you aren't otherwise prohibited from having a firearm (convicted felon, etc.) and you keep it in the glove compartment. Why it has to be in the glove compartment I could not tell you, but it is notable that a handgun is allowed, but any long guns must be cased and unloaded in your vehicle.

I bet other states have other permutations of this sort of thing.
