University of Kansas officials criticized a journalism professor Thursday, saying remarks that he tweeted regarding Monday's shootings at the Washington Navy Yard were "repugnant."
David Guth tweeted Monday that "blood is on the hands" of the National Rifle Association following the shootings that left 13 people dead.
"Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters," the tweet read. "Shame on you. May God damn you."
On Thursday, Ann Brill, dean of the university's journalism school, said Guth's views "do not represent our school, and we do not advocate violence directed against any group or individuals."
