University discloses students’ grades, disciplinary history when they apply for gun permits

Posted on: February 26th, 2013

The University of Iowa may have broken federal guidelines by sharing with the local sheriff’s department private information about students who apply for campus gun permits.

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, public universities are required to keep secret personal information on students, such as their grades and addresses. But Iowa has been sending personal information regarding students who apply for campus gun permits to the sheriff’s office.

That information includes whether students received bad grades, or were exhibiting signs of depression or anger.

    As usuall private agendas over rule rule of law . As the univercities views are those of the DOJ nothing will become of it and the students privacies are breached for political gain .Politics trump every thing any more .

    I believe a class action suit is in order at this time. I bet there are a couple of lawyers out there who might profit from it.

    This is unacceptable. It has to be challenged and the practice stopped.

    So, you apply for a gun permit and they get your school records but if you are the president (King) nobody can see your transcripts? Interesting…………
