Incendiary Image of the Day: A Tale of Two Campus Carry Protest Banners Edition

Screen Shot 2015-11-13 at 8.48.14 AM

Once again, I think the images speak for themselves, at least in terms of the UT anti-campus carry protesters use of empirical data.

    They want a gun free zone. You know, like Paris.

    1. avatar nynemillameetuh says:

      They want legal immigration from underdeveloped countries, just like the Parisians did…

      1. avatar jwm says:

        I got no problem with legal immigration. It’s the other kind that chaps my hide.

      2. avatar Vv ind says:

        Is it parisinians or parisites? Never been too sure….

  2. avatar Paul G says:

    They decided to “liberally” round up the numbers?

    1. avatar dh34 says:

      I figure half the attendees were getting “participation points” for showing up at the rally.

    2. avatar JasonM says:

      The numbers are probably correct. 1000 UT professors oppose guns in the classroom…just not enough to actually do anything about it.

  3. avatar JimmyW says:

    So are math skills that bad at UT-Austin? I count way less than 50 in each of the pics.

    1. avatar Hasdrubal says:

      It’s Common Core, they use about ten different methods to count to 50, then add them together, and multiply them by feelings.

    2. avatar Jake says:

      Their math skills are fine. The count 1000 is in base 3.

  4. avatar Ken says:

    They used to same counters as the Million Man March in DC.

  5. avatar ButtMunch says:

    Who cares what a few kids want?

  6. avatar Another Robert says:

    They count “opposing” and “refusing” faculty like the “moms” count members: if someone checks a box on an internet page, they “count”. You really don’t have to do anything, like, say, walk across the campus and show up at a “rally”.

  7. avatar James in Florida says:

    Your beating a dead horse.

      *You’re

      1. avatar Gabehcuod says:

        That’s their Indian name.

  8. avatar the ruester says:

    If you think about it, they are quite literally protesting for the right to their own facts. Who are we to say they’re wrong, they FEEL it and it’s on a SIGN! Like the sign on my zipper that says “beware of sasquatch.”

    1. avatar Bob R says:

      They are so afraid of guns and so blinded by confirmation bias that they would rather die than be saved by a concealed carrier.

  9. avatar William Burke says:

    They do’nt count so gud.

  10. avatar William Burke says:

    At least they got enough profs to hold the sign up!

    1. avatar Cliff H says:

      Nah, probably “teaching assistants.”

  11. avatar Galtha58 says:

    I count 20-30 people in the pictures. Where are the rest ? Where is the survey that supports their claims? How many faculty work at UT ? And finally, why don’t their number match ? Did they arbitrarily decide to “adjust” the numbers? Many questions with few answers.

    1. avatar Another Robert says:

      The numbers don’t match because they are referring to two different sets of faculty members. One is “faculty”, which includes more than professors, who “oppose” campus carry–but may not go so far as to “refuse” to have guns in their classrooms. The other is “professors” who presumably go further than just opposition in principle to campus carry, but will [somehow] refuse to allow guns in their classrooms [supposedly]. Not that any of it makes any difference, what we have here is , yes, “settled law”, like, ahhhh, Roe v Wade.

  12. avatar Charlie says:

    We need to raise the voting age to 26. Maybe then these children will have time to grow up before they try making decisions in the real world.

    1. Horse shit. Old enough to carry, old enough to vote.

    2. avatar Dustin says:

      This is a good point. If there is a “reasonable person” premise for the use of deadly force, shouldn’t there be one for voting, too? If your head isn’t in the real world, you should be voting there either.

    It’s Utah, The Momons will find a way to incorporate them into their food storage program.

  14. avatar Kilo says:

    The stars at night are big and bright. Deep in the heart of dumbass… UT alumni 92-95

  15. avatar gsnyder says:

    1163 UT faculty refuse to oppose guns on our campus. Is this what they meant to say?
