USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Overturn SB 11 ‘Campus Carry,’” busybody hoplophobe and legislative process ignoramus Sara Peters of Portland, OR, demands in a Change.org petition to the Texas State Senate, State House and Governor. When the petition was posted is unclear, but it looks like the earliest signature and comment was made 18 days ago, and at this writing they still have over 700 signatures to go for a total goal of 2,500. That’s in spite of being open to signers from all states and, per a drop-down country menu, from anywhere in the world.
So much for grassroots clamoring.
“They’re taking our oases of education, some of the most important institutions in our country, and using them as laboratories to test the limits of gun rights,” Peters whimpers in self-righteous angst. “And putting hundreds of thousands of students at risk in the process.
“Guns have no place on our campus, or any campus,” she insists, just like she actually knows what she’s talking about. “These places should remain institutions of higher learning, free from the worries that guns and violence bring. Our college campuses, where we harbor and educate our future, are not the place to experiment with gun rights.”
So much for an argument that forgoes emotion and convinces with unassailable logic. Maybe if she’d added a blurb about unicorns, her unwitting contention that predators should have a free pass and plenty of defenseless victims would resonate strongly enough to put the signature tally over the top. Then again, perhaps there’s a reason such a modest goal was picked in the first place.
But that’s not where Peters demonstrates how someone who presumes to teach doesn’t even belong in the classroom without some heavy deprogramming and plenty of prerequisites, starting with the fundamentals. Because to make her point, she brings up UT Austin sniper Charles Whitman and his 1966 bloodbath as the reason why everyone who’s not a psychotic monster must ensure they’re vulnerable to those who are.
