Student government representatives at the University of California Santa Barbara passed a resolution Wednesday calling for the disarming of its campus police force.

According to CampusReform.com, the resolution called for university administration to disarm campus police of "lethal and military-grade hardware."

The principal author of the resolution said that "having the UC be armed is something that should not be happening."

Another student said that an armed campus police force puts students in "perpetual fear and tension."
