There are always other forms of protection.....
Spray, batons, stun-gun, knives....you could probably buy a shotgun/pistol from a private party if you are just going to keep it in your residence.
Just beware of the penalties if you are caught with one!
IMO, you won't need a weapon, just go to school, learn and stay out of trouble.... ;-)

So, firearms are forbidden.
But how about Tasers, the ones who shoot those little darts?
After all, they still shoot something.

IN other words:

Ruger mini14, yes, AR15 no
Walther P38 yes, SIG556 no.
etc etc
Is that a VA thing? I know of no such restriction at a federal level unless you are talking about NFA stuff.
