A 21 year-old University of Memphis student was arrested after bringing a loaded handgun to class on Wednesday.
Not sure what U of M student, George Miller, was thinking when he brought a loaded handgun to school but he was arrested and charged for carrying a gun on the school property.
Carrying a gun on school property is against the school firearm policy which prohibits bringing weapons on campus except law enforcement officers in performance of their duties. One other exception to the rule of carrying a firearm on campus is when it is used for instructional or school-sanctioned ceremonial purposes.
According to authorities, a student alerted police of the gun that they saw in Miller’s bag in the Life Sciences building. As soon as Miller stepped outside his class, the police were waiting for him and patted him down.
Police found a fully loaded handgun and two full magazines inside of the bag George Miller was carrying.
