Skip to comments.Colorado professor starts petition to ban concealed carry after Aurora shooting
Posted on 07/23/2012 3:50:57 PM PDT by oliverdarcy
A professor in the Aurora area has started a petition to repeal Colorados Concealed Carry Act, in light of the recent mass-shooting that took place last week.
Professor Chad Kautzer launched the online petition at Change.org in an effort to help protect the health and safety of University of Colorado employees and students.
Earlier this year, the Colorado Supreme Court overturned CUDs ban on concealed weapons, ruling that Colorados Concealed Carry Act applied to college campuses. Now students who meet the states qualifications to carry a concealed weapon can do so on campus.
University campuses are places of work and study, reads the petition. The intentional introduction of more firearms in this environment only increases the chance of deadly violence.
Professor Kautzer, who is also the director of the schools social justice minor, lists the recent mass shooting by CU Denver student James Holmes as a reason to prohibit concealed firearms.

Belongs in “bloggers”. Or “chat”.

“Colorado professor starts petition to ban concealed carry...”
What’s his real job?
Im all for compromise.
Open carry is fine with me.
idiot. Concealed carry could have stopped the slaughter. It most certainly did not start it.
Holmes concealed nothing.
Chad Kautzer leads an Occupy Denver teach-in on economic and social theory, called Occupy Economics 101. This is the first of many Occupy Denver teach ins organized by the Education Committee
Let’s disarm the law-abiding populace so that only the bad guys have guns. And let’s declare more gun free zones aka free fire zones so the bad guys can shoot at defenseless people without interruption. You can tell this jerk is an academic - one would need an advanced degree to demonstrate such industrial strength stupidity!
The kinder, gentler HG returns. hehe
Only a liberal professor could make the leap of logic that a deranged person who would murder a dozen people would be impeded by a law.
I think I’ll sign it, maybe even twice. Because the libs know that gun control is a vote-killer; Clinton announced it, they’ve steered clear ever since. The bigger noise the gun control folks make, the louder they will fall when the DC libs ignore them.
You cannot change the Constitution by a petition, even a very impotant professor/ eyes rolling.
What's he gonna do? Double Secret Probation Ban?
This means Kautzer is an Anarchist !
You can pretty much stop reading at that point.
Right - since our prisons are empty because of everyone obeying the law sure, go ahead and pass another one. Everyone will naturally obey it. /sarc

He calls it education but his lesson plan is out of the mainstream. I can’t believe people pay for that crap.
