Dave Workman: Heat for Texas prof supporting gun control, while NY writer takes different tac
A professor at the University of Texas at Austin is taking heat for an Op-Ed in the Dallas Morning News calling for restrictive gun control following the shootout in Waco, while an opinion in the New York Post yesterday warned that New York officials better pay close attention to this week’s concealed carry victory in the District of Columbia.
It is ironic that an anti-gun-rights opinion would appear in a Texas newspaper in contrast to a pro-constitutional rights opinion in a New York newspaper. There are plenty of reactions to the opinions of Prof. John Traphagan, who teaches religious studies and anthropology, while there does not appear to be a comments section for the New York Post’s piece from Seth Lipsky.
