As responsible gun owners, we want children to know the truth about guns. We want our children to know how to safely and effectively use firearms and to know what is the actual danger in a firearm.
Now, because you’re reading this, you likely know which end of the gun is the safer end to be on, and you also know that the gun is just a tool, that the brain is the weapon. You also know that the Las Vegas shooter is responsible for his evil actions. No one else is to blame for this senseless tragedy.
But a university professor five miles from the scene of the shooting has a really bizarre idea of who is to blame for the Las Vegas shooting. Mitchell Gunter writes,
Just days after the horrific massacre in Las Vegas, and just 5 miles away from the scene, a University of Nevada-Las Vegas professor told her class that President Trump is to blame.
In a video obtained by Campus Reform, UNLV Assistant Professor Tess Winkelmann is seen addressing her History 407 class.
Referring to Trump, Winkelmann noted that “when he got elected, I told my classes three semesters ago, some of us won’t be affected by this presidency, but others are going to die. Other people will die because of this.”
Think about this. This professor says that the current President is to blame for someone killing 59 people, as if Trump ordered the shooting or somehow forced Stephen Paddock to murder people for no rational reason.
This professor needs to get her head out of the sand and wake up. First of all, it’s simply ridiculous to blame the gunman’s actions on the President. This doesn’t help people heal from this horrible event and does nothing to prevent another situation like this from occurring.
Secondly, this professor needs to stop using her classroom as a vehicle to spread political rhetoric. Her job isn’t to indoctrinate students into her ridiculous anti-gunner beliefs but to help students learn how to gather information and think for themselves. With these comments, she utterly failed at her job.
So, frankly, if you want your kids to understand the truth about guns, you would probably be better to avoid the University of Nevada – Las Vegas.
