Professor fired for advocating that concealed handguns be allowed on campus

This is pretty depressing.

An Emmanuel College professor has been fired after re-enacting the Virginia Tech massacre in his classroom in order to air a pro-gun viewpoint that offended students at the Catholic liberal arts school, the professor charged yesterday.
Nicholas Winset said he was terminated and permanently barred from campus following a Wednesday lecture in which he dramatized the massacre to show that deranged gunman Cho Seung-Hui could have been stopped if another student had been carrying a gun.
“If there were more guns in society, the response time to the (rampage) might have been much faster,” said Winset, an adjunct professor of financial accounting. “Someone might have been able to do something to stop it.” . . .

UPDATE: Paul Huebl send me an update on the story here. He includes the note that "Be sure to watch the clip parts in the right order."

No worries about the professor finding a new job, FOX NEWS will soon hire him as a "School Violence Prevention Expert" by the end of the week.

FOX NEWS needs more right wingnuttery rants from "angry white males" for "Fair and Balanced®" debates because white males just don't have a voice in America anymore.

Here's my post on this story, and a part of it:
...Professors all over the country are allowed to continue teaching after arguing that Bush was behind 9/11 and calling for & giving instruction to jihadist suicide bombers. Professor Ward Churchill got years of due-process after arguing that 9/11 victims were “little Eichmanns” and deserved the attack. He was eventually fired, but years later and for research misconduct and misrepresentation. Of course, those things probably wouldn’t have come to light had he not spoken out, but in this case, Winset didn’t get a full week or even a discussion before being told, literally, not to step foot back on campus. Yet, many still claim there’s no liberal bias on college campuses....
