Gun-Phobic Professor Leaves a
University Because of Campus Carry

An associate professor of history and American studies has taken a job at a university in a state that bans concealed carry in its classrooms.

Jacob S. Dorman has taken the occasion to let us know that restoring the exercise of Second Amendment rights at public institutions is the reason that he has left Kansas University.

From Jacob S. Dorman's open letter:

In light of the state of Kansas' apparent determination to allow the concealed carry of firearms in the classrooms of the University of Kansas, I am writing to tender my resignation effective two weeks from today as an associate professor of history and American studies at the university. I have accepted a job in a state that bans concealed carry in classrooms.


But Kansas will never secure the future that it deserves if it weakens its institutions of higher learning by driving off faculty members or applicants who feel as I do that there is no place for firearms in classrooms. Kansas can have great universities, or it can have concealed carry in classrooms, but it cannot have both.


Recruiting the best trained professors necessarily means recruiting from coastal areas and progressive college towns where most people do not believe that randomly arming untrained students is a proper exercise of the Second Amendment's protection of a well-regulated militia.

Professor Dorman has an opinion that guns do not belong in classrooms. It is a strongly held opinion, backed up by research provided by anti-Second Amendment groups such as the Trace. .......

It has to be wondered how those who despise campus carry would react if under attack in their oh-so-comfortable gun-free-zone. Would they simply sigh and resign themselves to potential injury or death - or, might they just wish that someone close by was armed and able to stop or limit possible mayhem. The ideal of course may well be the right of center professor who acknowledges risk and him/herself decides to carry, but seemingly that individual would be hard to find in the overwhelmingly left oriented centers of academia.
