College Prof Changes Mind On Gun Control

Another piece of required reading. College professor Mike Adams has long been a firearms rights and self defense advocate. But he now favors some gun control. But wait until you read why, and see where he goes with his argument.

Last week he witnessed a left-wing professor lose control, visibly angry and shaking, and screaming at 19-year-old college students at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington who were holding a civil debate tied to last week's national Empty Holster Protest.

"But the same thing cannot be said of the UNCW political science professor who ultimately changed my views on gun control. He had really strong feelings and a willingness to face people who disagreed with his views. That’s why he came to visit our “Empty Holster Day” table last Tuesday. But, unfortunately, the political science professor let his feelings get the better of him, which led directly to my change of heart on gun control. He began hurling epithets like “stupid, ignorant, and crazy” to the nineteen year old Millage. He so badly disrupted the event that the College Republican President called me in my office asking that I come over to try and calm him down. I gladly complied with her request – largely because I know that these events generate intelligent debate until the first professor shows up."

Read his full essay at TownHall.com. And once again, pass it to someone else to read.
