Kansas Professor Wrings Hands Over Campus Carry

posted on May 10, 2017

On July 1, campus-carry legislation takes effect in Kansas. That’s not only a big win for gun-rights activists, but for all law-abiding gun owners Sunflower State. Now it turns out the victory is also having some unintended, although not completely unwelcome, side effects.

A radical left-wing professor from the University of Kansas, seemingly unable to bear living in a state that chooses to exercise its constitutional freedoms, has announced his resignation. To Jacob Dorman, it’s an either-or situation, and Kansas has a decision to make: “Does it want excellent universities, with world-class faculty, or does it want to create an exodus of faculty like myself who have options to teach in states that ban weapons in classrooms?" he asked in an editorial published in the Lawrence Journal-World.

Dorman also appears certain that campus carry will lead to the demise of the state: “Let us not let the NRA destroy the future of the state of Kansas with a specious argument about the Second Amendment.” Apparently, he’s blissfully unaware that not only is campus carry already the law in several states, but that legislation hasn’t led to the downfall of any of those states or their state universities. But why ruin a good diatribe with facts?
