College Instructor Tries Segregating Gun Carriers in ‘Second Amendment Zone.’ Doesn’t go as Planned

Published

Second Amendment

A teaching assistant employed by the University of Utah is coming under intense fire for attempting to create a “Second Amendment Zone” which was created for the sole purpose of separating gun carriers from the rest of the class population.

The move, which is a pretty horrible one, completely and utterly backfired and as a result, the teaching assistant has officially been reassigned to other duties for the remainder of the semester.

It should be noted that both state law and University policy permit students to carry firearms on campus as long as they are legally licensed.

The unnamed teaching assistant reportedly attempted to create a safe space in the classroom for those who oppose guns by figuratively quarantining those weapon-carrying students in a taped-off area without any desks.

Campus Reform reported that the area was about 3 feet by 3 feet, and did not contain a desk because “desks are reserved for students who respect the personal and psychological safety of their classmates and instructor.”

The university reacted swiftly when the issue was brought to their attention and quashed the notion of a “Second Amendment zone” in the classroom or anywhere on campus.

A Facebook post by Utah state Rep. Karianne Lisonbee revealed the document that the teaching assistant reportedly created.

In an earlier iteration of the post, Lisbonee wrote, “I am livid. 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. Please share.”

When the story began to pick up traction, and was addressed by school administration, Lisbonee added, “Update: Great news! I have been assured that this teacher has been reprimanded for publishing a syllabus against University policy. She was asked and has issued an apology to her students. Her syllabus has been retracted by the University and they are committed to making sure that she receives proper training. Thank you to the University and to the brave students who raised this issue. The price of liberty is constant vigilance. Please share!”

A spokesperson for the school talked with Campus Reform, stating the policy had been removed from the syllabus.

Good on the university for standing up for the rights of students to exercise the Second Amendment and carry weapons to make themselves and their classmates safer.

The very reason this amendment exists is so people can possess the means they need to defend themselves from deviants who want to murder and steal. One of the main reasons mass shooters are able to carry out their horrific acts of violence is due to the lack of good guys with guns.

If we really want college campuses to be safe spaces, we need to allow students to carry guns. Period.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
