Received this from my nephew. It apparently was mass-mailed to everybody on campus. Can you find at least 4 things wrong (factually or policywise)? I did.

UW Madison Students, Faculty, & Staff,

When Wisconsin’s new concealed carry law goes into effect on November 1, 2011 all weapons will remain prohibited in UW Madison buildings. If you see a person who is not a police officer in uniform carrying a weapon in a UW Madison building, call 911. As allowed by law, persons with licenses will be allowed to have weapons in parking areas and on the grounds of the university. However, do not assume a person has a license. We recommend you think “safety first” and if you err, please err on the side of calling police. Our police officers are trained to react appropriately to those legally or illegally carrying weapons. As always, call UWPD if you see suspicious behavior or someone with a weapon on UW Madison property.

Please e-mail uwpolice@mhub.uwpd.wisc.edu if you have questions.
