Did you see or hear reports about the University of Arkansas marketing intern who apparently was injured during the football game Saturday by a malfunctioning T-shirt "gun"?

Witnesses heard an explosion and saw someone being taken away on a stretcher with what was described as a leg injury.

A gun on campus? Is that allowed? I guess it depends on how you define gun.

A T-shirt gun, or air cannon, uses high-pressure air tanks to propel shirts. They are a staple in sports arenas. But they are apparently not risk-free. 

Earlier this summer, the New York Times wrote about the inventor of the T-shirt gun.
