2 KKK Members Charged With Having Guns On Miss. Campus

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) – Two Ku Klux Klan members face federal weapons charges after police say they had guns in a truck parked at the University of Mississippi.

University police Thursday arrested Kyler Campbell and Virgil Dennison. An FBI agent says in federal court records that the men are Klan members.

Campbell and Dennison – who are not students – protested as the faculty senate adopted a resolution asking university administrators to remove the state flag because it has the Confederate battle emblem.

U.S. attorney’s office spokesman Chad Lamar says the men are charged with possessing a firearm in a school zone.

Campbell remained jailed Monday. It was unknown whether he has an attorney.

Dennison was released on house arrest and must undergo a mental evaluation. His public defender didn’t immediately return a call.
