Finally the last of the three big Iowa public universities have started letting campus police carry guns

The story on the University of Northern Iowa can be found here (emphasis added):

The University of Northern Iowa police have been carrying firearms since Dec. 23, following an October vote of the Iowa Board of Regents allowing arming of campus police.

Iowa State University became the first of the state's three public universities to arm officers when it allowed sworn police to carry guns Nov. 12. The University of Iowa followed on Nov. 22. . . .

a change long sought by the public safety directors. Iowa's public universities were the only schools in their athletic conferences that did not allow officers to carry guns.

Thanks very much to Mike Miller for sending me this link.

I got to the University of Northern Iowa and there was a lot of talk about this. It seemed like just about every lunatic and race-baiting professor on campus couldn't wait to bash the idea. Strangely, the two UNI professors who write for the area newspaper (the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, which I review movies for) both wrote in favor of it.

Well, after a year or two people will wonder what all the fuss was about. Thanks for posting.
