Univ. of Colorado rebukes professor on concealed-carry gun rule
Daily Caller ^ | 8-24-2012 | Robby Soave

Posted on 08/25/2012 5:19:13 PM PDT by servo1969

A professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder announced earlier this week that students who own guns under the state’s concealed-carry laws were prohibited from bringing them to his class.

But he was quickly rebuked by CU-Boulder Chancellor Philip DiStefano, who said such a request would violate state law.

In an e-mail to faculty, DiStefano wrote: “I have the utmost respect for Professor Peterson, who is an old friend and valued colleague, but I want to make clear that if the student carrying the weapon has a concealed-carry permit, the position implied by Professor Peterson’s comments directly violates Colorado law and the operating principles of the campus.”

Jerry Peterson is a physics professor and chair of the faculty assembly. Neither he nor the university responded to requests for comment.

Jim Manley, an attorney at the Mountain State Legal Foundation, commended the university for standing up for the law.

If it’s concealed, how would the prof know if anyone was carrying anyway?

But if you want to carry, this is a really nice, comfortable piece. A Smith and Wesson .38 Airweight. 100_0145

I like how the article leaves out her first name. They should of just said Patti Peterson. It doesn' take a genious to google/bing "University of Colorado Boulder Peterson" and find out the name.

Can find her university bio here.

I wrote the professor a nice letter telling him what I though of his idiotic stance. Ok, I lied. It wasn’t a nice letter.

Also, from the article: “And last week, UC-Boulder administrators announced that they would create separate dormitory housing for students with concealed-carry permits, effectively segregating gun owners from non-owners.”

Just dropped good old Jerry a followup e-mail. Nice to see that the university whacked his pee-pee!

Here is his address: jerrry.peterson@colorado.edu

Just in case you want to avail yourself of the opportunity to gloat!

I would actually be OK with that except for the students in the disarmed zone who will experience more assaults, robberies, and rapes due to the choice of their leftidiot parents. What, who besides a leftscum doesn’t know which dorms will be avoided by thugs and rapists and which ones will be targeted by them?

I only have a Walther P-38 for home defense and target shooting, but I plan to get my CCW permit. Been doing some research and I think the gun I want to get is the Springfield XDS .45

They wouldn't.

And they don't have any “right” to restrict people with CCW’s from carrying concealed weapons in their classrooms.

They don't even have a “right” to legally forbid people who don't have CCW’s permits, from carrying concealed weapons into their classrooms.

They can make up internal “regulations” regarding their personal preferences, and they can bureaucratically punish those who are caught ignoring their “classroom rules” by expelling those who don't follow them, but that does equate to the power of law.

One of the many things I find incomprehensible regarding our “higher education” system is that supposedly intelligent young adults, willingly pay large amounts of money to demonstrably stupid and willfully ignorant teachers, to “professionally tutor” them, in order to advance their “education”.

I've handled it and it is a nice small weapon. It's hard to wear enough clothing to be able to conceal much on the Gulf Coast so i started with a Kahr P-380 as it would fit in my pocket. Alas - it has severe chambering issues and is back aat the company (after a local gunsmith checked it out) to see if they can give me something reliable. In the meantime, I find the Ruger LCP 380 to be suitable. Unlike the Kahr, which has a short, steep ramp to the chamber, the Ruger has a straight shot from the mag to the chamber - no severe gyrations to get the precious metals to the foundry....

Do you know about hers. My wifes carries her own CCW. Even having grown up around guns, she hasn't felt the need. Plus, working at a corporate daycare facility makes it logistically tough. At least she's protected while with me.

Check out the background in this pic, and you'll figure it out. [If you can't work out the word behind Jerry's head on the slide in the pic, it's *nuclear.*]

Why have planet snowball on the screen? Maybe he’s a true believer who wants a nuclear war to plunge Earth into a nuclear winter that scrubs Gaia of the human infestation and cleanses her for a new birth, several billion years down the road.
