Grad Student Sues U. of Kentucky in Gun Dispute

February 3, 2010

A graduate student has sued the University of Kentucky, saying he was unfairly fired from his job at the university's medical center because he had a handgun in his car, The Lexington Herald-Leader reported. The car was parked on campus and the student had a permit, but he was fired under university regulations barring anyone from having a gun on campus (with exceptions for law enforcement, military training, or athletic programs that use weapons). His status as a student has not been affected by the gun dispute.
