Jon Wiener, UCI History Professor, Advocates Arming Some But Not All Faculty Members
But now the good professor has gone waaaay too far: In the wake of the Arizona tragedy, he's advocating the arming of old, white college professors like, uh, the guys he sits across from at Anthill Pub & Grille.
His angle is to suggest that may not be such a good idea--not because of inadequate gun training, other safety considerations or the fact that society has sunk so low to even consider such a thing.
No, as Wiener points out, "the question arises, Should all faculty members be armed?"
I've given away too much of his set-up already. Click on The Nation link above and read for yourself. It's breezy, hilarious and thought-provoking--just like its author.
