Possession, use or transportation of firearms or “deadly weapons” is prohibited on the property of the Graduate University. According to the California State Penal Code, Section 626.9.(b), any person who brings or possesses a firearm upon the grounds of, or within, a private institution is guilty of a felony which is punishable by imprisonment in the State prison for one, two or three years. In addition, the use of firearms in Claremont, Los Angeles County or in the western portion of San Bernardino County is prohibited by law.
The State law, as well as the Claremont Graduate University, prohibits bringing firecrackers or explosive materials of any kind onto any part of the campus or into the buildings. This includes combustibles in containers such as gasoline cans. Also, gasoline-powered scooters and motorcycles cannot be stored in Graduate University housing.
Illegal knives, switchblades and other blades that violate California State Law are prohibited. BB guns, pellet rifles and other weapons that propel projectiles are also prohibited and are not allowed on campus.
If necessary, recreational items may be stored at Campus Security.
Violation of this policy by any member of the community will result in confiscation of the weapon and may result in disciplinary action.
