Even the Austin 'merican's slant was against the professors of stupidity.

Tango,

Personally, I'm for UNIVERSAL CARRY, i.e.,  licensed persons should be allowed to carry EVERYWHERE, in the USA.
(A person who is trustworthy enough to wear firearms ANYWHERE should be trusted to carry EVERYWHERE.)

Awww...they are afraid they might have to hold back on the BS they push.

Quote
The instructors, who teach liberal arts, English and feminist and LGBT literature, filed the suit in July 2016, less than a month before the state's campus carry law went into effect in August. The law allows concealed handguns on campuses of higher education, but only carried by people at least 21 years old.

They argued the "possibility of the presence of concealed weapons in a classroom impedes my and other professors' ability to create a daring, intellectually active, mutually supportive, and engaged community of thinkers." The professors added that they would be forced to self-censor classroom discussions based on their fear that someone there could cause harm.

In SHORT,, the libtard professors are afraid when they go off the deep end with their ANTI EVERYTHING outlandish lieing rants,, someone ELSE may go off the deep end too.   :thinker:

Aint that kinda like the "good old days" BEFORE PC when you watched what you said to someones face because they might just punch you right in the kisser like you deserved?  :thumbsup1:

I'd throw another possibility for the professor's suit:  They grew up in a repressive city that was anti-gun and they know no difference, assuming that anyone with a gun was going to rob, rape or kill them.

On Rate My Professor (which I used when I was in grad school) notes that Lisa Moore, a professor of "Women Studies" has in interesting comment posted about her: "... she makes it hard for others to express their own opinions. i'm pretty liberal, but felt the class would have been better if it was less bias about political issues."

Jennifer Glass, a professor of Social Sciences, actually seems to get good marks and it doesn't look like there's a lot of politics in her class.  Similar with the third, Mia Carter.

I agree to the extent that people that own private property should still be able to decide.

Of course, I also believe in the old sign you used to see which stated "We reserve the right to refuse business to anyone"
which, of course, now "anyone" simply means "white, straight, people"  :th_thicon_lol:
In Texas, "He needed killin' " is a defense to prosecution.
