Police Block Free Speech When GOP Brings Guns to UW Campus


 Yesterday, GOP Senate candidate Joey Gibson was detained at the University of Washington after he and his supporters brought guns to the campus that doesn’t allow guns.   Video of the incident shows Gibson and his comrades lying on the ground while campus police search their weapons cache.

From RAW STORY “What we learned is they were going to do some kind of open carry kind of thing on the campus,”

UW Police Major Steven Rittereiser told the Stranger. “We simply informed them you can’t do that on campus.” The candidate and his cohort were not arrested because “Bringing a gun to campus leads to a progressive step where you could be trespassed from the campus,” Rittereiser said. “It never got to that level. We simply said take your stuff and go on your merry way.”
