The last time this topic came up it was after a UT professor left the state because of the campus carry issue. His issue was an irrational fear that his own students would pull their guns on him.
Now along come three University of Texas professors who filed a law suit to block handgun license holders from bringing guns into classrooms. See Three University of Texas professors are suing to block a state law that allows guns in classrooms. Here's why, according to the businessinsider.com article:
"Compelling professors at a public university to allow, without any limitation or restriction, students to carry concealed guns in their classrooms chills their First Amendment rights to academic freedom," according to the lawsuit, whose defendants include the state's attorney general, the school's president and university's board of regents.
The professors argue that they discus controversial and emotionally laden subjects such as reproductive rights and it would be inevitable for them to pull back at important junctures because of a cloud of gun violence hanging over the classroom.
That's a joke, right? "A cloud of gun violence hanging over the classroom" will chill their First Amendment rights -- what a hoot.
The conventional wisdom is that present day college campuses exist in liberal bubbles that choke out any conservative viewpoints. That they think the existence of guns would change that is the type of irrational thinking we expect from university professors these days. Maybe they bully conservatives so much they fear some form of equalizer in the room. Hmm. Campus carry might not be such a bad thing after all.
