All this was over receiving a B on a completely low-stakes assignment.What followed was even more startling. The following week, the student brought along a muscle-bound man to class. He watched me through the doorway window for the entire three hours of the class, with his arms folded across his chest.And if this wasn’t enough, the young woman’s classmates avoided me on campus because, they said, they were afraid of getting caught in the crossfire should she decide to shoot me.

So according to the author of this piece (Jessica Smartt Gullion) Precious Snowflake goes batshit for a B grade and uses threatening strategies against the teacher…well right there is a damned good reason to carry a gun just to make sure that if the threats go into the realm of application of force, you have something other than tenure to use.
But it gets better:
I WAS lucky that the student didn’t have a gun in my classroom. Other professors have not been so lucky.
Last year, a student at Purdue shot his instructor in front of a classroom of students. In anotherincident in 2009, a student at Northern Virginia Community College tried to shoot his math professor on campus. And in 2000, a graduate student at the University of Arkansas shot his English professor.
In each of these states, carrying handguns on campus was illegal at the time of the shooting, although a bill was introduced in Arkansas earlier this year to allow students to carry guns.
But…but.. you are arguing that keeping the campus Gun Free will make everybody safe! So what is it?
God Help Me. They let anybody teach kids nowadays. Cognitive Dissonance has replaced Common Sense and basic processing software for humans.

That is just… Gah… The scary part is they don’t even realize how screwed up they are…
What really bothers me is there is nothing to indicate that the prof reported the intimidation tactics.
“I need a gun to protect myself but I have no tactical/self defense training and refuse to do anything about the threat of danger except wish I had some magic talisman I could rub.” The prof needs a Rx for Thumpazine*.

Liberals have abandoned all logic. Watching liberals pundits and politicians talk about college, what I have learned is:
Colleges are racist, sexist, rape centers, filled with drunken, irresponsible, rape-happy, children. And it is so important for the future of America that everybody attend college, we should give instate tuition to illegal immigrants and make it free for everybody else, except for veterans who actually earned it, because funding the GI Bill is too warmongery.
