‘Nook On The Street, October 18

Guns are allowed on the UAF campus as long as they ares secured in storage
at the University Police Department or locked in a vehicle. This week we
asked students: “What are your thoughts about UAF’s gun/firearm policies?”

    Great rule if everyone were law abiding citizens, but any perspective gun possessor with nefarious intent to injure and terrorize isn’t going to be stopped by a simple campus policy. I hope campus police are at least carrying firearms.
