University Chancellor Nips Anti-Gun Professor's Delusions of Grandeur in the Bud

Friday, August 24, 2012

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.

Well, thank goodness in this instance, in this country of 300+ million people there’s also a university official ready and willing to give the sanctimonious professor a “reality check,” so the level-headed students and faculty at the university can put this minor irritant behind them and get on with business.

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.”

The professor said that he felt it was important for his students to feel safe when discussing controversial subjects…like the theories of gravity, we guess. But Chancellor DiStefano said that the professor’s threatened action would constitute discrimination against permit holders, as well as deny other students the education they have paid for.

"On this issue, there can be no ambiguity: all CU‑Boulder faculty, as CU and state employees, are expected to teach their assigned courses and to hold classes for all enrolled students," DiStefano wrote.
