Got the fix for you, young lady: Change your name to something that sounds muslim, declare yourself a militant lesbian, wear a “Hopey Change” shirt everywhere you go, talk up your African heritage whether you have any or not, and lastly burn an American flag while holding up a William Ayers book.

Do any or all of the above and the university is sure to not only let you disseminate your info, but you will also be actively assisted by it.

I think allowing guns on campus is stupid. I certainly have no problem with letting the administration decide on it even if it’s a public school.

Still a college should not even think about prohibiting to discuss anything. They are a disgrace.

A college shouldn’t be trampling the First Amendment rights of its students. I think this quotation is troubling:

Chilling. Not just CCAC, but also the TEXAS colleges. What’s up with that ya’ll? Did you go soft after I left 10 years ago?

“We don’t want to discuss this and you can’t make us.” If that is really what the administrators said, makes you wonder if they are administering college or kindergarten.

Ditto: Go get ‘em FIRE!

AZfederalist on May 28, 2009 at 11:11 PM

Given the extreme depth and breadth to which the squishy left has infiltrated our colleges and universities, if the students aren’t allowed to acquire a concealed carry permit, who will? I really doubt some social justice professor could be taught to use a gun when the only way he would be able to hold it is by pinching the grip tightly between his thumb and forefinger like it was some kind of dead animal.

I wish I could carry. I’ve been thrust into a cesspool of dirtbags over the last four years on campus.

Armed robbery, sexual assault, battery, breakig and entering
So much stress those nights I couldn’t wall my gf back to her form due to a test. Glad that’s done.

I want to carry on campus very badly.

Please explain your “thinking”. My guess is you are just parroting what you have heard repeatedly. It actually makes no sense to prohibit guns on campus. Do some actual work and think about this; when criminals know who is unarmed, they know who their next victim will be.

I really would be interested to learn what factors you considered before you came to the conclusion above.

InTheBellyoftheBeast on May 29, 2009 at 12:10 AM

TruthToBeTold on May 28, 2009 at 11:56 PM

Stony Brook University. It was started during the Cold War to pretty much research against the Soviets.

One of the best med schools in the country, a top research university, and number 127 of all the in the world. It’s a phenomenally great institution, run by phenomenally horrible leftists who drone on about “diversity” all day.

I don’t get it. We’re already diverse. We have the entire population of Queens and Brooklyn at our school — I don’t think it gets more diverse than that. Yet, that’s all they go on about. It’s befuddling. It’s really more of an obsession for them.

Unfortunately the school accepts a large number of dirtbags.

If only we were like Chaz and UofU. Carry!

blatantblue on May 29, 2009 at 12:11 AM

TruthToBeTold

My guess? Just about any college campus in America. They don’t really advertise the crime problems they have to potential students. You just learn about them when they have to escort every woman to the parking lot, even during the day.

So true.

It’s all nice, until the same girl gets assaulted TWICE by a loser on campus, who said:

“You really don’t think I’d let you get away, did you?”

Unreal.

blatantblue on May 29, 2009 at 12:23 AM

College students are adults, like it or not.

When I was in college at Iowa State University, many of us were hunters, with shotguns, rifles, pistols, archery equipment in our dorm rooms. These rooms were our only homes. We behaved like adults with our firearms.

One instance I remember was when a coed had a creep break into her room with ill intent. He burst out laughing when she drew her broadheaded arrow on him. He stopped laughing when she plugged him in the gut.

She probably knew a gut shot wasn’t nice to do to an animal.

Jimmy Doolittle on May 29, 2009 at 12:24 AM

Shut down the campus.

Prosecute all members of the administration involved in this civil rights violation.

Oh, and may they all suck ****s in hell.

Speech codes are unconscionable. This is the last straw. Lawsuits need to go into turbo mode against these fascistic tyrannical megalomaniacs.

MadisonConservative on May 29, 2009 at 12:25 AM

I’ll be frank here: I didn’t want my 5’3 little scandinavian girlfriend walking through partial woods areas to her dormitory at night near freaking thugs from Queens, the Bronx, or other parts of NYC.

F*ck that.

Made her take the bus all around campus to get to her room. But even then, you can get assaulted in the stairwell, outside the entrance to the dormitory. It’s quite frightening.

Note to HA parents with future college kids:

Make them do time at a community college

Then send them away but get them set up in an off campus apartment.

radiofreevillage on May 28, 2009 at 10:55 PM

That’s nice. Tell me what that did to stop Virginia Tech, dipstick. Now tell me what the likely difference in body count would have been if students had been allowed to concealed carry.

Gun free zones are the most tragic joke in academia, and all they do is provide free shooting galleries for those who were going to break the law anyway. How about we let the people who AREN’T going to engage in massacres be the ones armed?

MadisonConservative on May 29, 2009 at 12:28 AM

For anyone who thinks conceal carry for students is a no-no I have a simple request…

Of those states that allow conceal carry please post the examples of citizens going OK Corral on each other.

Thank you, in advance, for your hard work. I look forward to reading about the body count of all those citizens shooting it out over who is next in like at Dairy Queen. Or not.

Jimmy Doolittle on May 29, 2009 at 12:43 AM

Dear Mr Haymon,

I came across this article yesterday evening. I see that Fascism is alive and well in Allegheny County.

I imagine if a student was a militant lesbian, seeking to discuss the Vagina Monologues, someone at your school would have sought to make attendance mandatory for everyone.

Please let me introduce your staff to a document.

A) US Constitution

and two short Amendments that were made early on to the above document.

B) This section is called the Bill of Rights

Your staff will find that this is what we simple folk refer to as “the law of the land”. The highest law in our country actually. Within that law, your school is denying a citizen their 1st Amendment right to speak about their 2nd Amendment right. At it’s basic level, you are strong arming another human being and preventing them from protecting themself.

Regarding the Bill of Rights; if you will assign an individual capable in Library Science, they will bring overwhelming evidence that these rights are identified as inalienable. Meaning, they can not be forfeited, nor denied. These particular rights exist, whether someone believes in, supports them, … or not. An individual may choose to not to exercise these rights, but your students, one in particular, is seeking otherwise.

If I may make a suggestion; Perhaps you could introduce these two documents above to the Fascists and Marxists on your staff and strongly recommend that they read them to get in line with the law of the land. Our ancestors fought a war years ago over the denial of these rights so that their descendants would enjoy life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Seems just plain to me that your school is denying each.

Last, please don’t give a moment to the liberal chant regarding the dangers of inanimate objects, blood baths in the streets, etc. If you would instruct your Library Science personnel to look into the matter, they will find that the data is overwhelmingly otherwise.

Best Regards,

AZ_Redneck on May 29, 2009 at 12:45 AM

Jimmy Doolittle on May 29, 2009 at 12:43 AM

Some are pump-action, and you can load them with 5 or 6 shots. However, with practice, you can actually load a decent crossbow in a couple of seconds, providing you keep extra bolts nearby.

The key is that the shock experience by being pierced with a bolt or an arrow will usually give you enough time to reload. In that sense, they can be more effective than bullets.

However, I ain’t tradin’ my Bersa Thunder 9 UC for one anytime soon.

From the article:

CCAC also told Brashier that the college must pre-approve any distribution of literature to fellow students, and that pamphlets like hers would not be approved, even insisting that Brashier destroy all copies of her pamphlet.

Welcome to the Bolshevik US.

I would fire every single person who had a hand in this school policy and decision. Let them sue. Then counter-sue the living sh!t out of them.

progressoverpeace on May 29, 2009 at 3:52 AM

There’s a similar issue happening at the University of Louisiana at Monroe where a student is trying to start a chapter of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus. The administration is giving her the run around. I haven’t found a news article about it, possibly because she was being threatened with disciplinary action.

She was interviewed on Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk last Sunday. Here’s a link to the portion of the show she was on:

Dollayo on May 29, 2009 at 4:11 AM

If the State allows concealed carry with the required background checks, education on State Laws and training, issues a Permit, the gun owner has been vetted and checked more thoroughly than any School Administrator or Instructor regarding legal aspects and responsibilities.

School Admins cannot guarantee your personal safety absolutely anywhere on any campus. There is a certain arrogance in limiting Rights exercised by responsible law abiding individuals that have gone through the permitting process. The dean should be reminded in this case that their status is that of State Employee, just hired help. Those that pay Tuition are the Employer. The No Gun Zone laws on many States forbid carry on campus so the State Law should prevail until changed. However, concealed means just that and in any case, anyone that has been backgrounded, trained, permitted, met the State requirements should be exempt from any Gun Free Zone prohibitions or Nanny State Laws.

Your personal safety is an individual responsibility. Any student that is harmed in any Campus, by the deans logic, should be allowed to sue the dean in civil court for unlimited damages for failing to keep them safe there.

The autopsy found Parker was still alive after the head shot and died from the stomach wounds.

Blake on May 29, 2009 at 6:57 AM

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s Community College of Allegheny County is a publicly funded, NON-PRIVATE institution. Their legislators and board of regents can determine policy, but have no legal right to hamper the free discourse of anything legal, particularly regarding the supreme law of our land, the US CONSTITUTION & Bill of Rights, whether regarding free speech or the discussion regarding the right to bear and carry arms.

There’s more than one organization this student should consult, and the administrators who prohibited her free speech SHOULD be sued, absolutely.

Court cases on matters this basic better occur sooner than later.

AZfederalist on May 28, 2009 at 11:11 PM

The law passed with votes required this session ensuring people with concealed handgun licenses to be armed at Texas public institutions of higher learning.

Private institutions have their own private property rights to determine independently who may bear arms on their property in Texas.

maverick muse on May 29, 2009 at 7:10 AM

The irony here is absolutely breathtaking.

If we go back to those halcyon days of the mid 60′s, it was the administration at UC Berekely that was allegedly trampling on the first amendment rights of a student named Mario Savio. This led to the student riots, the anit-war movement and the rise of the radical left. And the rests as they say is history.

The times they are a’changin’… have a’changed….

skydaddy on May 29, 2009 at 12:36 AM

There are some community colleges within safe neighborhoods, designed with safety in mind, that hire sufficient and proficient campus police to ensure the safety of everyone on campus as much as possible.

But do be realistic, as MANY community colleges are in the oldest neighborhoods, old public school buildings converted into community colleges, or even new campuses built in crime ridden ethnic neighborhoods. Getting from your automobile into class, and return to your automobile is risky business, especially in the dark for evening/night classes. Those old school houses turned into community college locations do NOT have sufficient parking facilities; they were built as neighborhood schools before even busing was an issue. I would NOT want my daughter to be forced to attend such a location without carrying protection. Walking through old neighborhoods to get to class at night is a danger you’re ignoring because it doesn’t apply to you. Where’s the campus security? Still on campus, if the campus employees more than the one or two in their campus police office manning the phones. And those crime reports that you reference only apply to crimes committed ON campus, not on the streets surrounding campus sites.

The “no guns on campus” mentality is similar to the “no concealed carry in states” mentality. It is driven by the fear that private citizens will do more harm than good if allowed to carry firearms. They believe this is especially true of college-age people. The evidence to the contrary is legion, but that doesn’t change their knee-jerk anti-gun opinion. A hundred Virginia Tech’s wouldn’t change their opinion.
Campus police? Puhleeze! To really prevent crime you would need a campus cop to student ratio of about one to one. Let’s put that to a vote in the legislature.

Obviously if Parker had access to socialized medical care he would have survived his wounds. Another great reason to oppose the administration’s plans. By the way…shouldn’t the pharmacist be getting some sort of award rather than prosecuted?

juliesa on May 29, 2009 at 10:26 AM

Regarding the OK pharmacist story, a couple of days ago a pharmacist in my city (San Antonio) killed an armed robber. The police immediately ruled it justifiable, and haven’t hassled him at all.

juliesa on May 29, 2009 at 10:28 AM

Y’all should know that the the bill to allow carry on Texas campuses is probably dead for this session, along with voter ID and some other good (and bad) bills.

The Dems filibustered the Voter ID bill to kill it, and in the process may have killed some bills I really wanted passed.

Yes, I am pissed. My kid will be going to college next year, and I think campuses will be safer if seniors and staff can carry.

There may be a way to revive it before time runs out, but it doesn’t sound good.
