Senate Majority Leader Bruce calls on KU to fire journalism professor over Twitter comment on Navy Yard shooting

Dear Mr. Bruce:

I am constantly defending Kansas and its embarrassing political views but you are making it very difficult. Why don’t you stop pretending to be offended and interpret the statement the way it was intended? An average third grader would have little difficulty with the intent of Professor Guth’s comment yet a member of our state legislature stumbles over the nuances that so often appear in the English language. What’s truly offensive is the number of mass murders that occur in our society and the NRA’s insistence that guns are not part of the equation.

I totally agree with his sentiment so I'm not offended or embarrassed by his comments. What embarrasses me is our state legislature pretending to be offended when they should be smart enough to interpret something they may not agree with and then throwing the 1st amendment under the bus.

I don't think the implication is he wants the sons and daughters of the NRA murdered rather if they were the victims the NRA would take a different view.

Why do our legislators have to take every opportunity to embarrass us? I hope the national media doesn't run with this story.

My knee jerk reaction was the same only I was going to pull my support if Professor Guth was fired. I came to my senses. Hope you do as well.

One has to go out of their way to misinterpret his statement. Now the gun nuts are pretending to be offended.

What's the big deal. The NRA does have blood on its hands. As long as its not their sons and daughters they view mass shootings as an acceptable price to pay for the right to bear arms.
