    Oy. Pretty soon our "educational" institutions will be populated exclusively with socialists/communists/liberals.

    That's one reason I got out of Academia...and the fact that no university would EVER hire a conservative professor, let alone for any tenure-track position.

    "Diverity" is a limp-wristed liberal buzzword, but it does NOT apply to allowing conservative perspectives.

    I'd have to disagree slightly with all universities being super-liberal. I go to a large public University and, while there is definately a liberal slant to everything, all of my professors have not been liberal commie zealots.

    I even had an ethics professor that was very conservative and I rather enjoyed the class (I went into it figuring I would be force to regurgitate how awesome utilitarianism is and that Ayn Rand was an evil capitalist pig).

    That said, I would have no doubt a professor would be fired for saying that he wanted weapons on campus.

    I don't think a university will allow weapons on campus short of a state law requiring them to do so.

    They always spew about how guns are not allowed in schools anyways because of "federal laws" (not exactly true), and

    Once you convince them they are wrong about that, they will say it prohibits "academic freedom".
    Uh? "Academic Freedom"? What does that have to do with firearms?
    Well you see... people would be afraid to express their opinions if they thought people could have guns on campus.
    I guess they don't understand that anybody willing to shoot somebody over expressing their opinion isn't going to bother listening to laws.
    If you get past this point (very very difficult, since apparently criminals are supposed to obey the law), they just repeatedly spew:

    "BUT.. GUNSSSS KILLLL PEEEOOPPLLLEEE" (All zombie-like even)

    At this point it's best to just move on and stop bothering with them (actually, it's better to do that in the first place)

    The institutions are themselves liberal/socialist/commies -- they fire the occasional individual who says certain forbidden words like "we should allow students to carry guns."

    So you might find a rare free-loving individual on the staff, but the institution itself will not tolerate speech outside of the approved parameters.

    Say the wrong words and you'll be fired.
