Incendiary Image of the Day: A Tale of Two Campus Carry Protest Banners Edition by Robert Farago | Nov 14, 2015 | 29 comments facebook twitter linkedin email Once again, I think the images speak for themselves, at least in terms of the UT anti-campus carry protesters use of empirical data. comments jwm says: November 14, 2015 at 18:05 They want a gun free zone. You know, like Paris. Reply nynemillameetuh says: November 14, 2015 at 21:23 They want legal immigration from underdeveloped countries, just like the Parisians did… Reply jwm says: November 14, 2015 at 21:38 I got no problem with legal immigration. It’s the other kind that chaps my hide. Reply Vv ind says: November 14, 2015 at 22:29 Is it parisinians or parisites? Never been too sure…. Reply Paul G says: November 14, 2015 at 18:08 They decided to “liberally” round up the numbers? Reply dh34 says: November 14, 2015 at 18:33 I figure half the attendees were getting “participation points” for showing up at the rally. Reply JasonM says: November 14, 2015 at 18:46 The numbers are probably correct. 1000 UT professors oppose guns in the classroom…just not enough to actually do anything about it. Reply JimmyW says: November 14, 2015 at 18:12 So are math skills that bad at UT-Austin? I count way less than 50 in each of the pics. Reply Hasdrubal says: November 14, 2015 at 21:55 It’s Common Core, they use about ten different methods to count to 50, then add them together, and multiply them by feelings. Reply Jake says: November 14, 2015 at 23:23 Their math skills are fine. The count 1000 is in base 3. Reply Ken says: November 14, 2015 at 18:17 They used to same counters as the Million Man March in DC. Reply ButtMunch says: November 14, 2015 at 18:21 Who cares what a few kids want? Reply Another Robert says: November 14, 2015 at 18:23 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”. Reply James in Florida says: November 14, 2015 at 18:30 Your beating a dead horse. Reply Gadsden says: November 15, 2015 at 06:06 *You’re Reply Gabehcuod says: November 15, 2015 at 12:30 That’s their Indian name. Reply the ruester says: November 14, 2015 at 19:35 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.” Reply Bob R says: November 14, 2015 at 20:01 They are so afraid of guns and so blinded by confirmation bias that they would rather die than be saved by a concealed carrier. Reply William Burke says: November 14, 2015 at 19:45 They do’nt count so gud. Reply William Burke says: November 14, 2015 at 19:53 At least they got enough profs to hold the sign up! Reply Cliff H says: November 15, 2015 at 01:31 Nah, probably “teaching assistants.” Reply Galtha58 says: November 14, 2015 at 19:58 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. Reply Another Robert says: November 14, 2015 at 20:54 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. Reply Charlie says: November 14, 2015 at 20:30 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. Reply PistoleroJesse says: November 14, 2015 at 20:39 Horse shit. Old enough to carry, old enough to vote. Reply Dustin says: November 14, 2015 at 20:40 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.

Reply Kilo says: November 14, 2015 at 21:37 The stars at night are big and bright. Deep in the heart of dumbass… UT alumni 92-95 Reply gsnyder says: November 14, 2015 at 23:16 1163 UT faculty refuse to oppose guns on our campus. Is this what they meant to say?
