University: No Guns, Please—Now Fight For Your Lives!

posted on October 20, 2015

Just when you think academia could hardly get any screwier, the University of Gun-Unfriendly-Maryland ups the ante. In a “campus wide safety message,” students are advised to 1) run, and 2) hide from an active shooter. Good advice, as far as it goes, especially when you’re guaranteed to be unarmed as a result of Terrapin policy. Where things really get bizarre is step three: Campus PD Chief David Mitchell says students must also be mentally prepared to fight for their lives.

How, we’d like to know, are these mindsets (to say nothing of the actions) compatible? So just the slow people are left to die; those who were poor at “hide and seek” as children? And fight with what? Dry-erase markers? Chalk?

This is one more ugly example of an increasingly common phenomenon: The officially armed or protected get to dictate literal life and death for the rest of us, without an accounting of any sort, ever.
