Texas Profs Try To Break Law and Trample Rights Using First Amendment Argument

Radical liberals are the most intolerant people on the planet.  What makes their intolerance all the worse is the hypocrisy that they perpetrate when being intolerant.

Take the First Amendment on college campuses for instance.  LIberals would have you believe that campuses are the bastion of free thought and expression and that no views can nor should be silenced…as long as you don’t say God, support conservative causes, speak out in support of cops or (heaven forbid) support Donald Trump.

If anything like that were to happen than the liberal lions of the world will descend upon you and your “hate speech” and set up “safe spaces” for the emotionally stunted, perpetual children that such an environment has created.

That is enough hypocrisy right there to choke on but it’s not what I was even getting at.

In Texas since August 1st, in case you were unaware, concealed carry by licensed gun owners on campus has been made legal.  Unlike the rule by fiat that the liberals seem to LOVE when Obama does it, this mandatory authorization of concealed carry on state school campuses by actually went through the state legislature and was signed by the Governore…you know…DEMOCRACY.

Seems that some liberal professors hate that too.

University of Texas professors Mia Carter, Jennifer Glass and Lisa Moore decided to try and squash the will of the people and the Constitution by suing the University and the state of Texas in Federal court.

Their argument?

Allowing guns in their classrooms violates their constitutional rights to FREE SPEECH.


I’m not even sure how you can make ANY argument about free speech being violated let alone a rational one.

And isn’t it ironic, don’t you think, that the only time that liberals like these three care about free speech is when they are using it to try and trample over someone else’s rights.

Fortunately, unlike so many other places in this country, the University of Texas isn’t backing down.

Lawyers for UT had this to say:

“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.”

FINALLY, some consequences for little tyrants who want to trample over the Constitution.  These three little despots are getting the wake up call that their personal agenda’s do not trump the God given rights of the people especially when it is written clearly into a law highlighting that right.

Texas, both the state and University have made it clear that if professors try and break this law they WILL be repercussions.

I guess at this point I will dole out the obligatory “why gun control is stupid” and these women probably aren’t intelligent enough to be professors to begin with.

A prohibition against guns isn’t stopping bad people from carrying guns into classrooms to do bad things anywhere else so why do they think this sign:


would do anything to stop a shooting?

And while it is nice to see that Texas get on board with campus carry these are not, as the three women suggested, “dangerously experimental gun policies.”

True, only Texas and Utah have state laws explicitly mandating that state schools MUST allow concealed carry, that doesn’t mean that they are the only states in the nation that does.

When I was a student at the University of Pittsburgh I carried concealed when going to class and I would carry openly when I was on campus during the heat of spring and summer.  I wasn’t the only one.

In truth, more than half the states in the union allow carrying of firearms on college campuses.  Whether individual colleges follow suit is another issue but this is by far not an uncommon thing.

So these three professors get all bent out of shape because a little liberty is coming to their ivory towers.  Oh well.

U.S. District Court Judge Lee Yeakel is expected to give his ruling soon on whether or not these professors have the right to ban guns from the classroom.  Doesn’t seem that hard to me but I’m curious as to the wording of what he comes back with.

As for the professors, I wonder if they will still have jobs after this is all said and done.  I mean, the law is clear and their little temper tantrum is costing the state thousands upon thousands in lawyers fees and court costs.

This is basically a frivolous lawsuit and I hope when the gavel drops on this case the hammer drops on these three and all are dismissed.
