• Campus Carry Anti-Gun Protest In Kansas Goes DEATHLY Silent

    Anti-gun protesters went to the Kansas Capitol to show their disapproval of a bill that has already been passed allowing students to legally carry firearms concealed on state college campuses.

    The protesters were silent as they gagged themselves with rags labeled NRA. The gags were meant to symbolize their voices silenced by the lobbying done by the NRA in support of the bill. If only all protesters would go the silent route.

    Retired Professor Charles Merrifield voiced his concerns:

    Do you want to be teaching a class, failing a student and that student is maybe carrying a gun?

    This logic means that no one should ever fail if he or she is carrying a knife or a heavy book for that matter. A professor could be killed with all sorts of weapons. How many professors last year were shot by failing students? Even a better solution would be to never fail anyone…ever.

    From The College Fix:

    Kansas’s six state universities and dozens of publicly funded community colleges and technical schools are affected by the law, according to KCUR.

    But they appear to be the last public institution that has to comply: In 2012 the Legislature approved concealed-carry permit holders to carry their weapons in almost all public buildings.

    In 2015 the Legislature passed another measure allowing permitless concealed carry, making it the sixth state to allow “constitutional carry.” The temporary exemption given to public educational institutions ends in July 2017.

    Proponents gave the anti-gun colleges a way out. Provide security at every entrance at every building to assure no guns enter. Basically, if the college wants to deny an individual the right to carry then they must fully protect the individual student. Well done Kansas.

    The Legislature offered a way out for college administrators if they didn’t want the Second Amendment in their buildings: guard every door to keep all weapons out.

    Under this provision, guns could be banned only if a building had “adequate security measures” to stop all weapons from entering.

    With more than 800 buildings to protect, state universities won’t be able to add security to all of them, Board of Regents Chairman Kenny Wilk told the Lawrence Journal-World in May.
