Firearms and Professors

Are some professors really such pansy bedwetters that the mere mention of concealed carry permits--as part of an assignment for a communication class!--merits a call to the university police?

I'm guessing this Professor Paula Anderson is not a political conservative.

I wrote about something similar recently. Some professors seem to relish taking official action against student speech they don't like.

I'm sure you understand how these people think. The way they see it, ALL gun crime is committed by right wing wackos like us and anyone who expresses an interest in guns is not a hobbyist but a likely murderer who dreams at night about acting out his vendetta against good decent liberals like Professor Paula Anderson.

With a mindset like that, her reaction makes perfect sense.

Wouldn't it be amusing to have tee shirts, purses, backpacks, binders and books with pictures of guns on them? I wonder if they would be imtimidated by that as well?

You mean something like this?

I don't wish this twitty lib professor ill, but I do wonder if her views on firearms ownership would change if she experienced, say, a hot break-in (i.e., when she's home) one night.

Does she really think the police would protect her?

I've heard it said that a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged. Thankfully, I came upon this philosophy without having been mugged.

Look, let’s get to the point. We have legitimate fear of death from bad people with firearms. So can’t you figure out how to get to the real issue and address it.

The problem is murder.

So, let’s outlaw murder.

If someone saying “don’t do it” is enough, why haven’t our “glorious leaders” just done their jobs and outlawed murder. They should be fired unless they outlaw murder now!

The good professor's merely operating on the assumptions that A) moral superiority makes her fears important enough to both require action on the part of others as well as direct the weight of officialdom on a student and B) invulnerability in that there can be no possibility of any repercussions flying back on her.
