"All Weapons Must be Turned in for Storage"

Via the Carpetbagger, this is just one of the amazing rules that the students of Bob Jones University must adhere to. Here's some more-

Posters of movie and music stars and fashion models are not permitted. The subjects of personal photos should exhibit the modesty and appropriate physical contact we expect from our students.

Music must be compatible with the University's music standards:
  • New Age, jazz, rock, and country music is not permitted.
  • Contemporary Christian music is not permitted (e.g., Michael W. Smith, Stephen Curtis Chapman, WOW worship, and so forth).
Television and DVD/videocassettes players are not permitted in the residence halls; computer DVD players may not be used to view movies.

You may not possess or play computer and video games rated T,M, or A or having elements of blood and gore, sensual or demonic themes, or featuring suggestive dress, bad language or rock music.

Residence hall students may not watch videos above a G rating when visiting homes in town and may not attend movie theaters.

All weapons must be turned in for storage. Trigger locks are required for pistols. Fireworks are not permitted on campus.

Apparently rap music is compatible with this school's music standards.

And seriously, requiring trigger locks? Does the NRA know about this infringement on BJ U(heh, heh) student's freedom? And what if the libruls attack? Do we honestly think the students will be able to get to their guns in storage before they overrun the campus?
