University Chancellor Nips Anti-Gun Professor's Delusions of Grandeur in the Bud
In a country of more 300 million people, it's almost guaranteed that, somewhere out there, there's going to be someone so full of himself that even hot air can't find a way inside.
Earlier this week, a reporter from the Boulder, Colorado, Daily Camera validated that theory in the course of covering a silly and pathetic story coming out of the University of Colorado—we're sure to its embarrassment.
Here in America, parents pay huge sums of money to get their kids educated, so that America will remain the most exceptional and productive country on Earth. Yet a physics professor at the university—we won’t give him the satisfaction of repeating his name, out of regard for Americans of better disposition who have the same name—had the gall to say that regardless of the laws of Colorado, which allow a person with a carry permit to carry firearms on campus, he would adopt a “personal policy” of cancelling an entire class if he discovered that any student in the class was carrying a gun.
As the Daily Camera relates it, “University of Colorado Chancellor Phil DiStefano notified the Boulder campus faculty Tuesday afternoon that professors ‘do not have the right to shut down a class or refuse to teach’ should they learn that one of their students is lawfully carrying a gun under a concealed‑carry permit. And, DiStefano added, any faculty members who do so will be in violation of their contracts and face disciplinary action.”
