San Diego student seeks gun permit from Dartmouth

A 20-year-old student from San Diego is criticizing Dartmouth College for not letting her carry a concealed gun on campus for protection against a man facing criminal charges for stalking her.

Taylor Woolrich says she asked the university to make an exception to their gun ban because she feared an attack from Richard Bennett, who she said started stalking her when she was 16.

The 67-year-old was arrested by San Diego County sheriff's deputies in June and is in jail on suspicion of stalking with a court order in effect and possessing a firearm while under a restraining order. He insists he is innocent.

Woolrich said she hadn't seen Bennett in 18 months when he appeared at her parents' door while she was visiting home this spring.
