The board of Occidental College has agreed to bar future investments in companies that manufacture assault weapons, The Los Angeles Times reported. While the college has no such investments now, officials said that it was important to take a stand on the issue. Faculty members had pushed for the policy, citing mass shootings involving assault weapons. Jennifer Fiore, executive director of the Campaign to Unload, which is seeking such investment bans, said that she believed Occidental was the first college to adopt one and that others would follow.
