Four days ago, Erik Loomis, an assistant professor of American history at the University of Rhode Island, retweeted the above tweet. In case it disappears down the memory hole, heres a .jpg captured for posterity:.......

Erik Loomis, Ph.D., Assistant Professor U.S. environmental history, the Civil War, late 19th and early 20th century America, labor history, and the American West Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or (401) 874-4078
Found his blog:
Arrest Mr. Loomis.
Well, surprise, surprise! It’s a murderous watermelon mad professor.
The red guts of his bloodlust “green” solutions are quite final and just ooze out and slime everyone around him. He’s one of the Democrats’ “smart” ones.
Obviously Mr. Loomis is mentally unstable.He should not be allowed anywhere near our children, in fact I would say he is precisely the type of person who should be under constant supervision in a mental institution.
It seems to me the Loomis statement could be construed as antisemitic. Is Loomis antisemitic? I have read that all Israeli teachers are armed and well trained in the use of arms to protect the children they teach.
There are PhDs that require extreme intellect and there are PhDs that one can purchase on the back of a cereal box.
Mr (not Dr) Loomis has obviously chosen the latter.
Sorry, Eric, but you just are not very bright. Stick to something within your limited intellect - such as teaching marshmallow topics in a marshmallow department in a university that obviously threw their standards out the window.
Since the prof consents to debate by homicide, I presume he’s prepared to lose his argument.
Many in labor support a vigorous fight against climate change. Perhaps they can serve as a bridge to environmental organizations. What must happen is more meaningful dialogue between the UMWA and environmentalists. The UMWAs primary mission is to protect its members jobs. Without coal, what happens to thousands of families in Kentucky, West Virginia, Tennessee, Virginia, and Pennsylvania? Theres no easy answer. But attacking the EPA is not going to bring union jobs back to Appalachia. Demonizing environmentalists only serves to alienate alliances with other progressives the UMWA and other unions need to fight for a better future.
He probably still uses “guns in America” by Michael A. Bellesiles as a source text.
Even better to let his dean and university president know how you feel.
I’m thinking Dr. Seuss is more his debate level.
I do not like that gun I said,
I do not like it cuz I’m red.
Murder them with what weapon?
post the contact info if you have it..
Any teacher who objects to being armed can be give the opportunity to explore the adventures in the welfare office and unemployment agency.
The blood of the Sandy Hook massacre rests on Erik and his ilk who sacrificed these children and adults for the misguided notion that criminalizing self-defense will make us safer.
This nutjob is exactly why people must be armed.
Their kill list is growing by leaps and bounds.
The name is spelled “Loomis”, but it’s pronounced “Loon”.
oops the correct title
Arming America: The Origins of a National Gun Culture
He should be Alinsky’d.
Perfect candidate for it.
What a great example of irony.
Well done Mr. Liberal Professor
Sounds like a threat to public safety. Hope law enforcement can collect him and help him find the help he cleary needs.
He’s advocating killing persons who simply hold a certain opinion. Can only imagine the road-rage this guy has in traffic.
In the interest of workplace safety and the security of the children attending his school, suggest his employer carefully consider the risks of having such a person on staff. If nothing else, protection from future liability - when he finally loses it and do go ballistic, it will be on record that he had violent intentions.
Someone needs to ask this dufus where he’d buy the gun he’d use to kill anyone with. Oh, I get it. Only liberals can own guns.
I know liberals who don’t believe the government should say you can’t own guns. Obviosly this person owns a gun. Because she’s all for the government forcing you to buy insurance. I don’t even argue with them anymore. They defeat their own arguments if you’ll let them talk long enough. That’s what the professor just did.
Seriously, this guy should be fired just like the idiot that harrassed the girl at Chic fil A.
Salad tongs, I guess. Since he’s anti-gun and all.
Note: Firearms are not even among the top 5 killers of children.
Over 1065(!) are killed EVERY DAY (world-wide) by the following:
Road crashes: They kill 260,000 children a year and injure about 10 million. They are the leading cause of death among 10-19 year olds and a leading cause of child disability.
Drowning: It kills more than 175,000 children a year. Every year, up to 3 million children survive a drowning incident. Due to brain damage in some survivors, non-fatal drowning has the highest average lifetime health and economic impact of any injury type.
Burns: Fire-related burns kill nearly 96,000 children a year and the death rate is 11 times higher in low- and middle-income countries than in high-income countries.
Falls: Nearly 47,000 children fall to their deaths every year, but hundreds of thousands more sustain less serious injuries from a fall.
Poisoning: More than 45,000 children die each year from unintended poisoning.

Besides being a dangerous lunatic, the guy is also stupid. Gad!
Irony and hypocrisy collide in a single statement devoid of any reason whatsoever.
Imagine if some professor said “Murder anyone who tries to ban guns”. The media would erupt. I encourage everyone to email and CALL the school as many times as you can. I’ve already called twice.
Oh, he’s a “professor” in liberal dogma. No onder he posts such garbage. But it is amusing to see how low his opinion is of public school teachers.
You can’t murder me unless you have a gun....
If you try, I will use MY gun...
This is why I call them Gun Control Nazis

Re: Erick Loomis
Dear Sir or Madam,
Much has been said about the state of mind of the shooter at the elementary School in Connecticut and what may have provoked him to do such a horrible thing. Many have said he should have been diagnosed as mentally unstable and should not have been allowed in an open society.
I am writing you to say that you have this same type person, Eric Loomis, on your campus and in fact he may be as unstable as the shooter in Connecticut!!
My Loomis recently tweeted @rudepunditt First fucker to say the solution is for elementary school teachers to carry guns needs to be beaten to death. This is exactly the type of language that could cause some unstable person to go out and kill. I believe and hope you would agree that we can have a civil debate on this without the need for inciting violence?
As a member of the NRA and an advocate of teachers being armed, I now fear that my travels which take me on occasion to your fair state may put me at the risk of being harmed because of this type of tweet by Mr. Loomis.
It is my belief that you should immediately have a psychiatric evaluation of Mr. Loomis and provide the public with proof that Mr. Loomis is a stable person capable of teaching in an institution such as yours. Failure to do so and blood could possibly be on your hands because of his tweets.

Threats and Extortion
§ 11-42-4 Threats to public officials. (a) Whoever knowingly and willfully delivers or conveys, directly or indirectly, a verbal or written threat to take the life of, or to inflict bodily harm upon, a public official or a member of his or her immediate family because of the performance or nonperformance of some public duty, because of hostility of the person making the threat toward the status or position of the public official, or because of some other factor related to the official’s public existence, shall be guilty of a felony and shall be imprisoned for not more than five (5) years, or fined not more than five thousand dollars ($5,000), or both.

(2) “Immediate family” means a public official’s spouse, child, or children.
Looks like one of those full-time students that still lives at home with mommy & daddy.
Unless, of course, he's calling for an armed force of some kind with special permission to carry weapons so they can kill everyone this crank disagrees with.
I’m not too concerned about Mr. Loomis’ statements inciting another, his statements are a precursor of possible future violent acts by Mr. Loomis himself.
Yep. Spent 16 years getting his “education”.
