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

Anyone can say what they want on social media. And their employer should have the right to fire them.

As for the notion that the NRA supports policies that allow the killings like what happened in Washington to happen - an opinion couldn't be more backwards from the truth. The killings happened because THE GOOD GUYS AREN'T ALLOWED TO HAVE WEAPONS. How preposterous that our soldiers cannot carry loaded weapons on base. What happened at the Washington Naval Yard and Ft. Hood are mini-versions of what will happen to the entire country when the good guys have been disarmed. Look at Chicago. A killing field unparalleled in American history. Thirteen people shot in a park. I could be silly and say the media ignored that incident because they're racist and don't care about blacks killing blacks. But we know that the fact is it doesn't fit the template. When you take guns from the good guys we'll have peace, right? Right? Right? Oh wait, no, then only the bad guys have guns.

Police officer injured while arresting burglary suspect at T-Mobile store

Three injured officers this week and the police are still using pepper spray and tasers? Not if I were police chief. They need to be able to actually protect themselves and the community, not play games.
