GOOD QUESTION: Boise State Professor, ‘When May I Shoot a Student?’

In a February 27th op-ed Boise State University professor Greg Hampikian asked, “When may I shoot a student?”

Hampikian was trying to show his disapproval of a campus carry law gaining momentum in Idaho.

According to Boise’s, Hampikian believes the passage of campus carry will mean “disgruntled” students will pull guns from their backpacks instead of pencils.

Wrote Hampikian:

I have had encounters with disgruntled students over the years, some of whom seemed quite upset, but I always assumed that when they reached into their backpacks they were going for a pencil. Since I carry a pen to lecture, I did not feel outgunned; and because there are no working sharpeners in the lecture hall, the most they could get off is a single point. But now that they will be packing heat, I would like legal instruction in the rules of classroom engagement.
