Should university professors be able to say anything they want on social media?

The right to free speech does not mean that speech is free of consequences.

Lawrence man reports guns stolen in burglary Sunday

What a silly thing to say, you're grasping at thin air trying to find a reason to demonize gun owners.

North Lawrence accident leaves pedestrian with serious injuries

Maybe we don't know enough information to place blame on either party! Drivers have a responsibility to not hit people, people have a responsibility to not enter a traffic filled road.

Bill would allow open carry of firearms in the Kansas Statehouse, according to a Lawrence legislator; measures now go to Senate

It's funny that if we met each other on the street, you would know nothing about me. I'd like to think you'd leave our interaction thinking that I was a nice guy, and I would probably leave thinking the same about you. However, here, with the security of anonymity, you feel free to toss those statements around. I hope you're proud of yourself.

One can both respect the rights of property owners and still not frequent their establishment. Actually, by respecting the sign (instead of just ignoring it and carrying anyway), he is showing respect towards the business' decision.

23rd Street Brewery has lost my business because of their no concealed carry sign.

Under bill, concealed carry of guns would be decided by school boards, university leaders

I have never been attacked myself, though there have been a few incidents that I have been grateful to be carrying a firearm. They were not situations I brought on myself, one was going to a gas station, one was visiting a hardware store one evening. In both situations I was able to remove myself from the situation without any conflict. However, I acknowledge that with one or two changed variables, those situations could have turned out very differently.

And yes, I do know people who have been the victim of violent crime.

If I feared the world, I wouldn't go outside. However, I acknowledged bad things can happen (albeit rare) and I try to be prepared to handle those situations IF they ever arise.

Statistically, that really is a silly thing to say. What absurd emotional reason do you have for holding that belief?
