Under any definition a musket is not an assault weapon.
You people are unbelievable.

Do you want to take the Cavalieer's sword?

The Pirate's cannon?

Or maybe the Navy should not have a flyover because fighter jets are so deadly.

Stop being such cowards and let tradition stand. I am ashamed to have read such disgusting drivel in this thread.

Yes all weapons should be banned from school property.
Those jet flyovers are a waste of taxpayers money on fuel and who would be liable if one crashed in the town for a stupid football game.
I'm appalled to read disgusting racist, bigoted, ignorant, intolerant, closed minded remarks from backwoods, pill popping, redneck, hilljacks who hardly ever leave their holler except once a month!

Good words from a typical open minded liberal.Totalitarians of past and present love sheeple like yourself, Dont make assumptions out of thin air with no basis for backing. An antique musket is no assault rifle a full auto m16 is. People like you should never be in any power of authority if there is any gun that needs tighter control would be pistols most crimes are caused by pistols and not semi auto rifles.Word of advice quit watching piers morgan and rid yourself of ignorant and snobbish points of views about my state. Wherelaw abiding people have guns there is low crime.

I think the musket needs to be banned. It could hurt someone and with all the violence lately, safety needs to be a main concern.

Musket assault weapon. Now that is a retard statement. You really know nothing about firearms. Please go start a topic about non stick skillets or curtains. At least know what you are crying about

Stay at home mattie. The world is full of people with guns, knives, cars, hammers, etc. One musket isn't going to make a whole heck of a big difference.

Well, I think it should be banned. There is to much violence and we don't need any mascots sending messages to kids that guns are ok.

With people today telling kids and anyone that will listen that guns are bad we are in for a hard life. Guns are not bad, people are bad. Educate the public and youth to understand common principals and use of firearms.
Americans are turning into sissy chickens. All people wanting to do away with the musket, the symbol of a mountaineer should move to France or Canada.
Run like a French man from a cap gun.
Or a Herd running from a single mountain man.

Our children do not need to see that violent weapon and it is very disrespectful to those who have been violated by firearm crimes.
Also having a weapon that can actually fire live rounds is very irresponsible and WVU could see a very serious law suit if something should happen!
I will help try to get lawyers, media, politicians, NCAA, and WVU to help get these dangerous weapons out of all of our schools.
The ignorant posters above who disapprove, need to stop being intolerant, racist, bigoted, inbred,hilljacks and realise this is not the Wild West this is 2013.
Evolve or go instinct, simpletons.
The weapons themselves are neither "violent" or "dangerous." These are characteristics that should be given to the people responsible for the weapons' misuse. I think you are underestimating those who have been impacted by crimes involving guns. Respectfully, I ask if you think these people are also offended at the sight of anything to do w our military or police forces? If your answer is 'no' bc these are the "good guys," I then have to wonder why it is that you assign a deviant role to the mascot.

Your argument, and again I say this respectfully, falls prey to that slippery slope. It's irrational at best.

One last comment:

Worry not about these "simpletons" going extinct. It is your freedoms that are most at risk. This may not be one that you have a particular stake in; however, if we continue to allow our Constitutional rights to be chiseled away at, one day a freedom that you do particularly enjoy will surely end up on the chopping block.

These guns are weapons and have no place on school grounds. Only police and military should have weapons. I say ban the musket.

Not to mention ball bearings, bb's, nails, and pressure cookers! I better see some regulations on Grandma yard sales. Just anyone can walk up into one of those and purchase crazy, violent things for a dollar with no background check! Regulate the YARD SALES!

Yes it should be banned. Other students aren't allowed guns in that University and the mascot shouldn't be allowed to either. Ban the gun from WVU!

Yes it should be banned. It is an embarassment to WVU and WV.
