An All-Time Low For Newsweek

posted on May 2, 2015

In one of the most asinine attacks yet on the campus carry movement, Newsweek recently pontificated on whether legalizing campus carry will lead to professors giving better grades to avoid getting shot. “Will we soon see a new sort of grade inflation, with students earning a 4.0 GPA with their firepower rather than brainpower?” asks sociology professor Jessica Smartt Gullion.

The question is so preposterous it’s hard to know where to start. First, under the Texas measure being considered, only students who are 21, have passed a background check and have undergone training can receive a carry permit. Second, students with concealed-carry permits are already able to carry in other places, but disarmed when crossing a nebulous boundary onto a college campus. Lastly, since shooting a professor is a crime, if a student really wanted to do so, would a law against carrying on campus really stop him?
