Disarming police officers on campus fosters a "safe and inclusive environment," says Board of Trustees

Rob ShimshockRebel Contributor

After a vote by the Board of Trustees, the Massachusetts College of Art and Design will keep their campus police force unarmed. It's for safety's sake, or something.

I’m sure the strong voices and personalities of these campus cops will prevail in any situation…. Or maybe NOT??

Donald Mac Leod very well said.

Actually it creates a gun free zone that can be infiltrated by several terrorists who would destroy the whole complex & every soul in it whereas they wouldn’t be as likely to attack sitting ducks guarded by flesh ripping eagles and falcons armed to kill. Being honest . The minute any person gives up their right to defend themselves they have lost their Liberty & freedom . That is why power dictators do not want people to be in a position to defend themselves.

At least this lunacy is good for a laugh.

I agree. This is an open invitation for a crazed shooter to kill at will. What a real-life video game this will be for a deranged nut. And when it does happen, the usual suspects will be screaming for tighter gun restrictions on law-abiding citizens who would never shoot up a school of any sort.

IF I was some crazy lefty that got hold of some weapons somehow, I would definitely be heading to the GUN FREE ZONE that is Massf Art, for some serious and easy killing!
Thanks for the heads up Board of Trustees…
You lefty gun grabbers may get my guns but you’ll never get me! Bwahahahaha.

The stupidity infesting the world is truly breathtaking. An unintended consequence is that anyone with the propensity to take many lives could now be drawn to this campus like a magnet. The funny thing about deterrents is that those who want to commit serious offences are going to look for victims and scenarios with the least likelihood of risk or consequences to themselves.

Muta.. just police officers..??? Time has shown that over over again The more the citizens are disarmed the more the government and the police are against them.!! The thing about nukes.!?! You can have a nuke and everybody knows you have a nuke and you don’t have to use a nuke to have the respect that comes with it… meaning just seeing one hanging off of somebodies hip would dissuade stupid people from doing stupid things.!! But applicants for open carry should at least pass some basic tests.

Maybe when the next school shooting happens there, they can just ask the shooter if he would prefer to go the snowflakes safe room?

These people are beyond absurd.

A firearm in the possession of a well trained police officer is as benign as a banana or apple he may have in a lunch bag.
It’s absurd and dangerous to give the faculty and students of a college a false sense of security when the opposite exists with their wacky ideas on the danger of firearms.

If open carry can save just one life in the absence of police protection or stopping criminals from executing a violent crime on innocent people it is worth it.!

CHARRED REMAINS, agreed.. Lock and load people… Everyone should have the right to own a Firearm.. Including Handguns… And you are correct. In States where the Citizens have a right to bear arms (concealed or otherwise), crime does drop significantly… Texas and Colorado come to mind. I’ve been to both…

Ya… England tried disarming their police officers for the same reason… Personally I think it’s a good idea that way police couldn’t shoot anybody for holding a hairdryer on them.!! However.. citizens should be able to protect themselves and that way we would only require a smaller police force who could dedicate their time to kidnappings, espionage, terrorism, political interference, obstruction of justice and the like.. that means the RCMP could make the time to investigate our corrupt liberal party. Statistics show that when citizens are armed violent crime in the area drops significantly.
