Colorado professor starts petition to ban concealed carry after Aurora shooting
Campus Reform ^

Posted on 07/23/2012 3:50:57 PM PDT by oliverdarcy

A professor in the Aurora area has started a petition to repeal Colorado’s 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 CUD’s ban on concealed weapons, ruling that Colorado’s Concealed Carry Act applied to college campuses. Now students who meet the state’s 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 school’s “social justice minor,” lists the “recent mass shooting by CU Denver student James Holmes” as a reason to prohibit concealed firearms.

idiot. Concealed carry could have stopped the slaughter. It most certainly did not start it.

Concealed carry had absolutely nothing to do with James Holmes' ability to carry out his crimes.

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!

Funny thing about that is the fact that there doesn't appear to be any evidence of it.

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.

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

Another one who looks in the wrong of the telescope. Kautzer is a unknowing conspirator with those looking for gun free victim zones to carry out their acts.

Rats...you beat me to it!!! All I had to read was “Social Justice” and I could assuredly predict what this “Professor” would spout.
Hey, Prof, do you know what percentage of felony shootings are perpetrated by LEGALLY licensed gun owners? Was the Aurora shooter licensed? How about the weekly shooters in Chicago, Philadelphia, etc etc etc?
The sad irony is, while Professor Nonsense, spews his idiocy, there are people out there, legally carrying, who will step up if (God forbid) needed to save this guy’s worthless life.

Pardon me Professor, but I don't think Mr. Holmes had any intention to conceal his weapons. Perhaps thou doest bark up the wrong tree?

So a nut job who did not have a CCW, who did not hide his weapons and perped his crime in a place that prohibits all weapons would be stopped by banning CCW?

Only a marxist educator on the public dole could come up with that.

I filled out their application. They asked this question, among others:

“Do you have any questions or ideas you think Occupy Denver should look into?”

My answer: “Investigate why you are all bat shit crazy.”

May as well have a little fun with them.

That would be the website of the jackass in question. Like most left-wingers he’s pretty short on logic, in spite of being a professor.

OTOH cripplecreek, Professor Chad Kautzer might be a little fearfull, approaching paranoia, and right now, perhaps even wishing old time public shamings and/or “tar and feathering's” would come back into style...immediately.

What if just one person had a permit and a gun, and was trained in how to use it? Would have been different ending.
