Journal Journal: Oregon University Gun Ban

According to this article, Jeffrey Maxwell was arrested and cited for "possessing a firearm in a public building." The DA recognized that he had not broken any law and did not charge him, but the school suspended him. In order to re-enroll he is required, among other things, to

write a minimum 10-page paper on following the law, accepting responsibility for his actions and "recognizing the impact possession of weapons on college campuses has on others."
