Concealed Carry group preps lawsuit against Ohio State

After months of demanding guns be allowed on Ohio State’s campus, Ohio Students for Concealed Carry is preparing to file a lawsuit against the university.

In an statement published on the group’s websiteon Nov. 20, Michael Newbern, director of Ohio Students for Concealed Carry and a third-year in industrial and systems engineering, gave words of warning to Gee.

“We’re coming for you, (OSU President E.) Gordon Gee. And we’re going to be knocking sooner than you think. You can either recognize the will of the people of Ohio, or expect a pink slip,” Newbern wrote.

Newbern told The Lantern that the group has reached a point where a lawsuit against Gee is the only way to make their voice heard.

“We tried, and we have been trying for a year, and there is no interest. No interest whatsoever in speaking to me, anybody from our group, none at all,” Newbern said. “That’s fine, (Gee) can explain it in court in front of a judge.”
At the beginning of Fall Semester, Newbern’s cause gained attention after OSU Police released an Aug. 26 safety notice, telling students of crimes that had occurred on and off campus. Members of Buckeyes for Concealed Carry, the OSU chapter of Ohio Students for Concealed Carry, followed up with a return email to thousands of students about how guns could help if students are in danger.

Three months later, Newbern said the group is ready to file a lawsuit against OSU as early as next semester, after raising about $3,000 at a fundraiser dinner at the beginning of November.
