WSU Prof Shows Complete Ignorance Of Concealed Carry

posted on June 8, 2017

A professor at Wichita State University, who claims she is resigning because of the state's new campus-carry law, proved in a whiny rant detailed at Kansas.com that she has no understanding of law-abiding Americans who carry firearms for self-defense.

After a thorough bashing of gun owners, carry proponents and state legislators in a letter to the WSU president, communication professor Deborah Ballard-Reisch finally got to what was really bothering her. “If I see you walking down the street with a gun, if I see a gun in your bag, I don’t feel safer because I don’t know who you are,” she wrote. “You can kill me, so it’s in my best interest to assume that if you have a gun, you are a threat.”

That’s where Ballard-Reisch’s logic has failed her. If she would do a little research, she would know that not only are police convicted of gun crimes at a higher rate than carry permit holders, but several other states already have campus-carry laws in place, with no recorded incidents of lawful carriers committing violent crimes on campus in those states.
