UAA students rally for right to carry guns

Posted: Sunday, April 26, 2009

ANCHORAGE - Some students at the University of Alaska Anchorage want to be allowed to carry guns on campus.

George Hines, a UAA student, organized a protest Thursday against a UA-system gun ban. About 15 sign-waving students showed up for the protest, held at a street corner near campus.

Hines believes everyone would be safer if more people were carrying guns.

Alaskans older than 21 may carry a concealed weapon most places without a concealed carry permit.

In the mid-1990s, however, the university board of regents made a policy against guns on campus.

UA spokeswoman Kate Ripley says no one has challenged the policy before now.
