Triggered Professor Quits Over Campus Carry Law

by Steve MacDonald

concealed carry small caliber A Professor at a Kansas College is leaving her post because a law permitting people to carry firearms on campus is taking effect.

A Wichita State University professor is resigning over a Kansas campus open-carry law that is set to take effect this summer.

“Clear, open, critical discussion cannot take place in an environment of threat and fear,” Deborah Ballard-Reisch wrote in a letter to University President John Bardo. “Guns on campus will make it that much more difficult for them to feel safe,” she wrote.


How long has Dr. Ballard-Reisch tolerated Diversity, Inclusive Excellence, and other Social Justice programs on campus? These curricula exist to prohibit ‘clear, open, critical discussion‘ by not just encouraging an “environment of threat and fear” but tolerating it.

Students, professors, even the free media have been threatened by the inclusion and diversity snowflakes, with angry protests commonplace.

While her personal experience (she was robbed at gunpoint in 2014) might cause distress, neither the concealed carry community nor the criminal justice system tolerates the source of that fear. And didn’t she go to ‘good guys’ with guns to report her predicament? Good guys with guns who weren’t there when she needed them?

If she were as open minded and she’d like her campus to be, she’d know that violent crime including armed robbery is much less frequent when concealed or constitutional carry is both permitted and publicized.

By leaving she increases the odds of being a victim again, but that his her choice which is ironic considering how illiberal and intolerant the social justice college culture has made most American Campuses.
