You probably have heard by now about Texas’ new pro-gun law that went into effect as of August 1. The law allows students 21 or older who have a concealed weapons carry permit to legally bring their firearms into most buildings on campus. And as expected the liberals are having a massive temper tantrum over the recent law change.
In typical liberal fashion three University of Texas professors felt it was their mission in life to stop the “crazy new gun law,” even though all professors were told: Ban students from carrying guns in class and there will be consequences.
The UT professors in question, Mia Carter, Jennifer Glass and Lisa Moore, sued to overturn the state’s new law this past July, which they referred to as “dangerously-experimental gun policies.”
The university’s lawyers stated, “Faculty members are aware that state law provides that guns can be carried on campus, and that the president has not made a rule excluding them from classrooms. As a result, any individual professor who attempts to establish such prohibition is subject to discipline.” Yup, you read that right. The LAW states they cannot interfere with allowing students to bring their guns to class. Perhaps they feel their personal agenda trumps a state law?
You have to love how these three professors are suddenly invoking free speech in order to stifle the Second Amendment. Seems the only time liberals are up for free speech these days is when they can use it to stomp on someone else’s liberty.
U.S. District Court Judge Lee Yeakel is expected to give his ruling on whether or not these professors have the right to ban guns from the classroom. But I think we all know that this should be a simple decision. One that can be made by just taking a quick look at the Second Amendment. The amendment clearly states the right to bear arms shall not be infringed upon.
The teachers actions would also seem to be in direct conflict with the Texas law. It will be interested to see if the teachers are ultimately punished, or possible even dismissed, for violation of state law since the school is a state ran institution.
I think you’ll agree that Texas is doing the right thing by allowing students to possess firearms on campus. In the event of another mass shooting, those firearms would probably save their lives and the lives of their classmates.
