The purpose of the 2nd Amendment was to preserve the power with the people instead of the government by ensuring that a rogue government could be put down by force if the need ever arose.

They should then replace him as chairman and dock his pay for each and every day he refuses to perform up to his contract with the University.

As a physics prof he should know already, that for every action there is a equal but opposite reaction. And I don't know exactly what "controversial" topics are covered in physics, but I think the prof is over-hyping his sense of insecurity.

Interesting. I don't feel guns are need in the classroom but until you can keep the crazies from shooting up campuses then by all means CARRY-ON.

Why would he do that when he can just cancel class and still get paid?

Let him cancel, if he doesn't like the law he will be out of a job soon.

His classroom, his rules.

My dad is a retired commercial airline pilot. After 9-11 and they started allowing armed marshals and some armed pilots on planes my dad made it clear he wouldn't allow a gun his plane and would throw any armed marshal or first officer off. He's the captain - his plane, his rules.

He's likely to have tenure. Short of outright quitting pretty much, he'll have a job.

It kinda defeats the concealing when you announce you are carrying too.
