No Weapons On Campus Policy
The use or possession of any weapons is prohibited on A-B Tech property or at any College-sponsored activities or events. (See also Workplace Violence Prevention Policy.) It is a violation of A-B Tech policy and state law (N.C.G.S. 14.269.2) for any person, including students, employees and visitors to possess or carry, whether openly or concealed, any weapon. The term “weapon” includes, but is not limited to, the following:
Gun, rifle, pistol, dynamite, cartridge, bomb, grenade, mine, powerful explosive (as defined in N.C.G.S. 14-284.1), BB gun, stun gun, air rifle or pistol, bowie knife, dirk, dagger, slingshot, leaded cane, switchblade knife, razors, razor blades, blackjack, metallic knuckles, fireworks.
The term “weapon” also includes any other weapon of like kind, such as sharp pointed or edged instruments; but the term “weapon” excludes tools, utensils, and equipment used solely for maintenance or instructional purposes (such as unaltered nail files and clips, dental tools, and tools used solely for preparation of food) or used for authorized ceremonial purposes on the A-B Tech campus, grounds, recreation areas, athletic field, or other properly owned, used, or operated by A-B Tech.
This policy shall not apply to employees or students when used for authorized training purposes, or to law enforcement officers or military personnel when acting in the discharge of their official duties.
Any person violating this policy shall be disciplined at the discretion of the A-B Tech administration. A person found guilty of activity prohibited by this Weapons Policy may also be guilty under state law of a felony and, upon conviction, may be punished at the discretion of the court.
