Gun rights activists say such a policy violates state law, and legislators are getting involved in the dispute.
Zachary Wellman, a security guard at University Hospital, said he and another campus police officer were put on leave last week after Wellman shared the guidelines with a friend, who took the U. protocols to gun advocacy groups and state lawmakers.
Wellman said he did it because he believed U. lawyers were going around the Legislature to rewrite the law.
University of Utah is a notoriously liberal ("Marxist") school.
