Liberal professors across the state of Texas are likely throwing themselves to the floor in massive temper tantrums after three of their fellow “educators” were warned not to ban students from carrying guns into their classrooms.
Yes, in a nation flooded by the insanity of anti-gun propaganda coming out of the radical left, there’s at least one state in the Union that still understands the correct interpretation of the Second Amendment.
According to TheBlaze, Three University of Texas professors were given a clear warning on Monday: Ban students from carrying guns in class and there will be consequences.
That’s because, under a new state law that took effect last week, students attending the university who are 21 and older and who have a concealed carry permit are now legally allowed to carry in most buildings on campus, as TheBlaze previously reported.
But in July, three UT professors, Mia Carter, Jennifer Glass and Lisa Moore, sued to overturn the state’s new law, which they referred to as “dangerously-experimental gun policies.” Attorneys for the University of Texas-Austin and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, however, filed a legal brief Monday warning the trio of what could happen should they choose to go against the newly implemented law.
“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,” the brief stated, according to the Dallas Morning News.
The lawyers then asked the court to throw out the professors’ case. The academics, however, asked that the court temporarily block the law for one semester to allow time for experts to decide whether campus carry violates their right to free speech and equal protection.
The professors went on to say in a legal brief that there is nothing in the Texas campus carry law that specifically prohibits them from excepting their own classrooms. The state, however, pointed out that the law gives each campus president the right to establish “gun free zones on their campuses, which do not already include classrooms.”
Incidentally, you gotta love the liberal professors suddenly invoking free speech in order to stifle the Second Amendment. Seems the only time liberal professors are up for free speech these days is when they can use it to try to quash 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.
This should be a simple decision, one that can be made by just taking a quick look at the Second Amendment and doing what it says.
The amendment clearly states the right to bear arms shall not be infringed. Notice the lack of further clarification? That’s not because our founders lacked foresight to consider the various ways in which tyranny might attack our fundamental right to self-defense, but rather because they meant exactly what they said.
Texas is doing the right thing by allowing students to possess firearms that could, in the event of a mass shooting, enable them to save their lives and the lives of their classmates.
Let’s hope the judge sides with the Constitution on this one.
