Yet more divestment demands (guns)?

Our previous governor wouldn't approve.
There is an article in the LA Times about various campus divestment movements.*  It contained this sentence:

...Gun control activists in the national Campaign to Unload group and student governments — horrified by the May rampage that left seven dead at Isla Vista near UC Santa Barbara — are now seeking a more formal ban on weapons industry investment and better public disclosure...

The Regents actually did divest from guns after the Sandy Hook (Connecticut) shooting so apparently this campaign wants something more. It's not clear what that is. I checked out the Campaign to Unload website and found articles with demands for the Regents to divest from guns but no further explanation.**
