SPOKANE, Wash. -- The President of Gonzaga University sent an e-mail to students Saturday acknowledging calls to re-evaluate the school's rules on guns.
The statement comes after two GU students used a gun to protect themselves at their University-owned apartment.
President Thayne McCulloh said as a Jesuit institution dedicated to thoughtful evaluation of complex social issues, he believes this is an opportunity to objectively re-examine their firearms policy.
Seniors Erik Fagan and Daniel McIntosh are currently under review for having a gun in their apartment. Authorities said they pulled out a gun when a man with an outstanding felony warrant came to their door asking for money. The suspect fled but was later arrested by police.
The students are facing expulsion. A final decision is expected next week.
