“Campus Carry” Law Spurs Anti-American Academic to Flee Texas for PA

LVTPSecond-amendment

From the Lehigh Valley 9/12 Tea Party’s Second Amendment Committee’s Newsletter

 

A freedom-hating academic is relocating from Texas to Pennsylvania – whining all the way – because he disagrees with the Lone Star State’s stand on gun safety. University of Texas School of Architecture Dean Frederick Steiner is taking a job at as dean of the University of Pennsylvania School of Design because of a recently enacted Texas gun law called Campus Carry, according to an article on cnn.com.

The new law will allow people who are licensed to carry concealed handguns to carry their guns onto the campuses of Texas’ four-year state universities. The universities will be able to create gun-free zones, but those zones cannot include classrooms.

Last year, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott stopped at a gun range to sign into law bills letting Texans carry concealed handguns on college campuses and openly carry them virtually everywhere else, according to a report on kxan.com. “Abbott was at Red’s Indoor Range in Pflugerville,” the article noted. “He says the laws mean Texans can be sure their Second Amendment rights will be stronger and more secure than ever before.”

The departure of Dean Steiner is Texas’ gain but Pennsylvania’s loss, since it means the Ivy League Philadelphia university has yet another anti-gunner infecting the minds of young adults.

Classrooms, architecture studios, and grading can be highly stressful settings, whines Steiner, who complains that “When you have a stressful situation like exams, performance review or studio, I don’t see how a firearm can enhance that learning experience. There’s no shortage of examples of stressful work settings that result in people being shot. … It’s not abstract. We see it all the time. So why add firearms to a situation where we know there is stress involved.”

Of course Steiner didn’t bother to note that when Islamic terrorists slaughtered scores of people in places like California and Paris the barbarians weren’t in the middle of a “stressful” classroom setting. Steiner also didn’t address the fact that terrorists have never successfully attacked an NRA meeting or other gathering where the majority of citizens are legally armed.

Steiner has received some “hate mail,” he admitted.

“They use negative labels like liberal and go to Massachusetts,” Steiner said, according to the cnn.com article.
