Utah TA Punished After Segregating Gun-Carrying Students To Tiny Zone With No Desk
The University of Utah said Tuesday that it removed a teaching assistant from a classroom after the TA relegated concealed-carrying students to a tiny zone with no desk.
The unnamed teacher had confined gun-toting students to a three-by-three, taped-off area of the classroom, even though both Utah law and university policy permitted students with gun permits or licenses to carry on campus, reported Campus Reform.
“Because the University of Utah reserves the right to restrict elements of the first amendment on campus to specifically sanctioned ‘free speech zones,’ I am reserving the right to restrict elements of the second amendment in my own classroom,” the teacher said in the course’s “Weapons Policy.”
“If you feel that it is somehow at all appropriate to bring a gun to class (hint: it is not — this is absurd, antisocial, and frightening behavior), you are restricted to spending your time in class in my ‘second amendment zone’ a 3×3 taped square on the floor in the very back of the classroom, that will be shared with all other gun carriers,” he continued.
“This zone also does not include a desk, because desks are reserved for students who respect the personal and psychological safety of their classmates and instructor.”
Utah state Republican Rep. Karianne Lisonbee shared the policy on Facebook.
“I am livid,” she said in the post. “A University of Utah Professor doesn’t understand the Bill of Rights and University policy on free speech – which is disturbing enough. But even more egregious, she is seeking to break state law and deprive students of their rights.”
A University of Utah spokesman said that the TA apologized and will not be teaching during the fall 2018 semester.

the only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker, is observation. all the same data is present for both. The rest, is understanding what you’re seeing.

Mississippi It sounds like she was an adjunct teacher. My ex wife taught a couple of courses at a university as an adjunct, it doesn’t pay much. She’d make about $2500 a semester per course if I remember right.
It sounds like the university handled it right. I’d suspect her college teaching career is over, they get invited on an as needed basis and I imagine she’s proven herself a liability with her stunt. Unfortunately there’s no requirement not to be an idiot for teaching at a college.

Same points I was gonna make, a TA is nobody much.
Unfortunately in a lot of states besides Utah it would be a tenured Prof doing this.

Utah Several years ago, Bernie Machen, then the president of U of U, enforced a campus policy against concealed carry, in violation of state law. This led to litigation, heard by the state Supreme Court, and to new legislation that clarified that the legislature was going to make the rules about concealed carry, not the U of U. The management of the university is acutely aware of the limits of their authority.
Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good. #13079201 – 2 hours ago Re: Utah Teacher Discriminates Against Students With Concealed Carry Permits [ Re: slumlord ] Joined: Oct 2011

Or, his brave stance resonates with like-minded professors and he’ll be in great demand.

Western NY State +1 It’s a “resume enhancer” to lots of other TA jobs. Even if the TA were fired there are lots of schools looking for that type of person….unfortunately.

High Point,NC My question is this: how did this teacher know who had a concealed permit in the first place?

I’ll bet she get invited to teach at many of the large liberal colleges. Schools like Berkeley will be fighting for her services. She probably just made her career.

Ogden, Utah Dear Hoplophobe,
In response to your irrational fear of weapons and belief that guns have no legitimate purpose, I pledge that if ever you are viciously attacked and in danger of death, I will not use my gun to defend you.
Sincerely,
A Concealed Carrier

I believe they used the pronoun HE in referring to the teacher. Reading is needed. Cheers NC
