This comes to us from Caitlin O-Shei who writes her reason for supporting campus carry laws You should read the entire piece but this nugget sums up the basic principle that rights, natural rights, trump feelings
It is not reasonable to restrict a constitutional right to spare others feelings. It is the responsibility of the gun owner to make sure that the gun is safe, not that everyone around them feels safe. The same people willing to restrict student’s rights to carry based off others’ feelings would lose their minds if a university decided Muslim students could not exercise their freedom of religion and pray on campus because it made others feel unsafe. As a society we have largely decided that rights are not subject to the whims of majority emotion, why should the second amendment be any different?
Bravo!! The Left has this backwards of course. In their world feelings, at least the feelings of some, should rule over human rights like self-defense, freedom of speech, religion, and association.
Liberalism is an ideology for the unserious
A Texas college professor claims a coming law that would allowing licensed gun owners to carry firearms on campuses will cause grades to shoot up.
In a recent opinion piece published in Newsweek, Jessica Gullion, an assistant professor of sociology at Texas Woman’s University, warns that allowing students to pack heat in the classroom could add a scary dimension to those after-class discussions about grades.
“Will we soon see a new sort of grade inflation, with students earning a 4.0 GPA with their firepower rather than brainpower?” Gullion wrote.
Gullion recounted being intimidated by one student angry about her grade, and said knowing that angry students might be armed and could “resort to any means necessary” to keep their grades up could prompt professors to hand out easy As.
“Allowing students to carry weapons to class strips off a layer of safety,” she wrote. “Students are often emotional and can be volatile when it comes to their GPAs,” she wrote. “Who would want to give a student a low grade and then get shot for it?”
Good freaking grief! Liberals truly think guns are magical. They believe that a gun is evil, and takes over peoples minds. A gun, apparently can turn a student into a killer, at least in the delusional mind of this buffoon. The fact is the very LAST person a teacher will have to worry about IS someone with a CHL!
