University advises nodding at an assailant will prevent attack
Women who are about to be raped at or near the University of Arkansas at Little Rock should nod at their attackers as an alternative to using deadly force, according to that universitys safety expert. Huh?
The Arkansas legislature recently gave schools the authority to opt out of the states concealed carry laws and thereby ban guns on campus. Most schools have chosen to do so, including Arkansas State University and the University of Arkansas, as reported by The College Fix. The ban extends to even professors and staff members, leaving some observers puzzled.
We just dont understand how someone trusted to teach in a university and has also gone through the additional rigor to obtain a concealed handgun carry license environment cannot be trusted with their self-defense, said Mike Newbern, assistant director of public relations for Students for Conceal and Carry.
That still leaves open the question of self-protection while on or near campus, a question and concern raised in a thread of emails among UALR staff, one of whom had been recently assaulted by a group of teens while heading to class, according to The Daily Caller.
I had not gone very far before I was attacked from behind by two of them and received a number of blows to the back of my head, the UALR biology professor wrote.
UALR Department of Public Safety detective Sharon Houlette had a suggestion for dealing with this problem.
A glance or a nod will help you show anyone who might think that you are not paying attention, and you are aware of their presence, she wrote in a responding email. This was actually one of four tips Houlette offered, the others being according to The Arkansas Project:
1. Always pay attention to your surroundings.
2. Attend a complimentary Crime Prevention presentation or workshop!
3. Park on campus and use the trolley service to get to class so as to reduce the potential attack time.
Nic Horton of the Arkansas Project had a tip of his own: If you must step foot on a college campus, choose one that respects your 2nd Amendment rights.
Im with Nic on this one.

Blowing his ass away will have a better effect!
Step back, I carry a bobble head and I’m not afraid to use it?
My daughters have receive a valuable lesson at home. I have made them sit still with no interruptions for five minutes. No TV, no phones, absolutely nothing. Then I told them, if they were lucky, the police could show up in five minutes. After the lesson, I took them shooting at the club. We do the latter regularly.
I thought nodding your head meant “Yes”.
How Clintonian is this?
A woman should comply for DNC rapist?
UALR Department of Public Safety detective Sharon Houlette sounds like one of Representative Todd Aiken’s followers ~ but something tells me she’s really not
Why don't these universities give classes in Sparkly Eyes Technique?
Shouldn't they tell them to shake their heads instead?
A nod, huh? Predators know when you are paying attention—and many of them like it. It’s like in the horror movie—Jason doesn’t kill you until you’ve sinned (pot, or better yet, sex), and then noticed him.
I am from AR and I am ashamed! I hang my head in disgust!
If the gun is big enough the recoil could cause a nod or 2...
