Grade Point Average = Gun Permit Application

Published in today's Daily Iowan.

This cartoon is based on this story:

UI suspends sharing student information for gun permits following investigation

I'm not a big gun guy. But this just seemed sort of bizarre to me, that the University of Iowa was sharing FERPA-protected information with the sheriff. I'm all for open information, as a proud member of the journalism profession. But looking at a person's grades to determine whether someone qualifies for a gun is probably unnecessary.
