Oklahoma Professor: Self-Defense Is A Basic Human Right

posted on November 11, 2015

A professor at the University of Oklahoma has weighed in on the campus carry debate. David Deming says it’s time to remove the restrictions that prohibit otherwise legal guns on college campuses.

In an opinion piece for NewsOK, Deming pointed out that university administrators have no way of keeping students, faculty and staff safe. “A college campus has miles of open borders open to any terrorist or deranged individual,” he wrote. “It is irrational to believe that a policy or a sign will stop a person intent on committing mayhem.” 

Deming’s pro-safety opinion is refreshing in a world where one university has a group threatening to sue if guns aren’t banned in classrooms, and another is clamoring for “safe spaces.” Although, to be fair, Deming is clamoring for “safe spaces” as well—only his safe space is defined as one that is a “guns welcome” zone.
