Kansas Prof Disparages Second Amendment in Syllabus

Another university, another example of instructors crossing the line with their blatant bias against the Second Amendment. It’s not enough that we have heard about a graduate assistant who wanted to put those who exercise the right to carry in a corner of the classroom. Nor is it enough for a lacrosse coach to tell a player who posted pictures of hunting and guns on social media to choose between his right to free speech or his right to play on the team. Now we have a full-time professor (it’s not clear whether he is tenured) saying he is reluctant to have office hours in his office because the University of Kansas allows law-abiding citizens to carry on campus.

His course materials included two pages of a diatribe against gun rights and he said he won’t allow much in-person access to his students because he “no longer feels safe.”

Here’s a person who is teaching a class on the history of the Japanese Samurai and he is telling his students—students who are paying thousands in tuition to have access to their professors—that he’s afraid to meet with them on campus because he doesn’t want to have to worry about a student getting angry and shooting him.

This comes in light of two recent court rulings where it was determined that professors in Texas and Georgia have weak foundations for their arguments about feeling unsafe with the notion of campus carry.

The news report on thecollegefix.com had some interesting comments saying if the prof truly felt unsafe, he’d leave the state of Kansas, because he’d—by extension—be afraid to ever set foot outside since carry is fairly prevalent in the state. They pointed out that the professor is merely taking advantage of the relatively newly legalized campus carry to try to score political points or sway state lawmakers against gun rights.

Sad to say, he ignores the notion that the crime rate on campus dropped by 13 percent last year, and while campus carry might not be the only factor in that decrease, it certainly hasn’t hurt.

While it’s obvious that college campuses are bastions of liberal thinking, it’s also apparent that universities would like to keep it just that way. Is it any wonder people are graduating with little sense of what to expect once they’re in the real world.
