University Prof Rants About Guns, NRA

In a rant secretly videoed during an introductory biology course, University of California, Irvine professor Richard Symanski blamed violent crime on the National Rifle Association and urged students to become gun-ban activists.

In the video found here, Symanski says: “If you want a cause—want to get on a bandwagon—then get these guns outlawed, and do something about the Second Amendment.” Symanski also addressed the NRA: “Who’s the big culprit of this? It’s the NRA—the National Rifle Association—which is enormously powerful in this country, in a way that you and I can’t imagine.”

Symanski even revealed his own mental instability, and his inability to believe gun owners might be different: “Look, we’re all sort of off the edge at some point, right? We don’t know when we’re going to fly off the edge. And what does the issue become? The issue becomes do we have access to a gun or an AK-47 or an automatic weapon? If we don’t have access to the damn thing we can’t kill anybody.”
