Utah Univ. Cop On Leave for Gun-Memo Leak

January 07, 2011  | 

The University of Utah has placed a campus officer and security guard on paid administrative leave after they leaked an internal memo outlining how to approach those who carry a weapon in plain sight.

The university currently doesn't allow open carry on campus. It allows concealed carry with a permit.

Campus police can site and arrest anyone carrying a gun without a permit, according to the memo. If the carrier has a permit, they much conceal the weapon or leave campus, reports KSL.

Security guard Zachary Wellman, who was placed on leave along with an unidentified officer on Dec. 30, told the news source he believes the protocol violates the right to bear arms. The Students for Concealed Carry group posted the memo online, stating that it was unfair to students who are lawfully carrying.
