Kent State University today dedicated the site of the May 4, 1970, shootings of 13 students -- killing four -- by Ohio National Guard soldiers as a National Historic Landmark.

Journalist Dan Rather will speak tonight as part of the school's Presidential Speaker Series.

“This was an emotional earthquake for the country to have young national guardsmen firing on young students," Rather says. "Or if you want to use a metaphor, it was a tremendous hammer to the heart.”

About two-dozen people participated in an open-carry gun walk at Kent State University over the weekend. And as WKSU’s Kabir Bhatia reports, they met several protestors near the spot where the National Guard killed four students, and wounded nine others, in 1970.

 This year’s choice of speaker at Kent State’s May 4th commemorations is drawing criticism as well as praise.
