NIU president gives input to gun task force
DeKALB – Northern Illinois University President John Peters has provided input to Vice President Joe Biden’s task force on reducing gun violence.
Peters was president of NIU when a gunman opened fire in a lecture hall in February 2008, killing five students and injuring many more before killing himself. The Daily Chronicle reports that Peters is following the task force’s activities.
The school said in a statement that Peters is “supportive of a holistic public policy approach to reducing gun violence.” That would include enhanced licensing and registration regulations, appropriate data sharing and mental health policies and issues.
