A federal judge recently delivered a two-fer, affirming the first and second amendments to the Constitution.

“Three University of Texas at Austin professors filed a lawsuit claiming that letting people carry firearms on their campus would have a chilling effect on speech,” Liz Wolfe wrote in an article which appeared in Reason magazine. “Last week, District Judge Lee Yeakel dismissed the suit claiming the professors could present ‘no concrete evidence to substantiate their fears’ and that their fears rest on ‘mere conjecture.'” Arguably, so does the modern day university.
