Blame the Governor!

Here in Pennsylvania, our governor is just terrible. I mean terrible. His administration directed publicly funded colleges to review their rules and regulations and–gasp–make sure they are all constitutional! Oh, the horror of making sure that government agencies/departments/institutions aren’t violating the state constitution!

The directive that prompted Kutztown University to allow people to carry guns on campus came from Gov. Tom Corbett’s administration.

Corbett’s office of General Counsel directed all 14 state-owned universities to review their policies restricting guns on campus to determine whether the policies would withstand constitutional muster, said Kutztown University spokesman Matt Santos.

If I see an attack ad on this issue next year, I’m going to probably hit my head against a desk. I don’t care what side of the aisle you’re on, you should support a directive to make sure that the government isn’t violating rights. If anything, from a liberal perspective, it makes it less likely that these institutions will be sued.

    Every day I had a LTCF and attended PSU, I violated university policy – including graduation day.

    From a liberal perspective, nobody cares if the institutions get sued. There are always friendly judges, and if not, the only one who ultimately loses is the taxpayer. And, fom a liberal perspective, that’s what taxpayers are for.

    Allowing carry if one can sell a “compelling personal safety reason” is hardly bringing their guidelines into constitutional congruence.

    How charmingly naive. When has either side been interested in the rights of the citizens?

    Sadly, Sean D is undoubtedly correct. Still to bitch that you have to obey the state and federal constitution? That takes some special nerve. Or you have to be a p(K)utz.

    “to bitch that you have to obey the state and federal constitution? That takes some special nerve.”

    Not really, when it has become the standard practice for all prevailing ideologies. The trick is to claim that prevailing interpretations of the constitution are wrong, and are being imposed on you by activist judges.

    Of course, sometimes that will be true.
