Law School Student Suspended Because He Owns a Gun

The University of North Texas has a so-called CARE Team that responds to “disruptive or potentially threatening behavior,” but apparently the Team doesn’t care about the facts of a case—especially one in which a law-abiding gun owner is involved.

Brandon Masin was attending the university’s law school and headed up the school’s chapter of The Federalist Society, a conservative group on campus. One day in November, he received an email from the university, saying that he would have to meet with the Campus Assessment, Response & Evaluation (CARE) Team because they were investigating an alleged threat against one of his professors. He was also immediately suspended, pending the outcome of the inquiry.

The interview with the CARE Team ended up starting with an interrogation by the university's counselor and the chief of the campus police, who questioned him about anger issues, whether he had a firearm, whether he carried, whether he felt unsafe on campus and other topics. After that, a school investigator came in to interview him, saying he was being questioned in connection with an anonymous threat against a professor.

Masin provided evidence (GPS data and witnesses) that disputed his involvement, but that wasn’t good enough. He was later advised, by email, that he was considered a threat (though no substantiation for the assessment was provided) and that the suspension would hold.
