It is the policy of the University of Nebraska Medical Center to prohibit possession of deadly weapons on University property. For purposes of this policy, a deadly weapon can be identified as any firearm, knife, bludgeon, or other device, instrument, material, or substance, whether animate or inanimate, which, in the manner it is used or is intended to be used, is capable of producing death or serious bodily injury.
No persons, on or entering University premises, will be allowed to retain in their possession firearms, guns, weapons, ammunition explosives or incendiary devices. Any item classifiable as a potentially dangerous weapon, and for which a purpose of possession cannot be established, is prohibited. Members of the law enforcement agencies of municipal, county, state and federal governments on official visits on campus are exempt from this provision.
