Hoplophobe Professors And Body Armor
By Tom Knighton
Gun-fearing professors appear to be donning body armor as more and more states are embracing campus carry as a reality. At least, based on what you see on the internet, that seems to be the case. There was one photo floating around Facebook some time back of a professor wearing what looked like a Gulf War-style flak jacket and helmet.
Another professor has apparently latched onto the idea and is wearing armor because of the possibility his students are packing.
If students are going to pack hidden heat, one professor is going to wear a bulletproof vest.
That professor is Kevin Willmott, the director of noted films including “C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America,” who is raising both eyebrows and continued debate at the University of Kansas for teaching all classes this semester with the black protective vest strapped over his torso.
“Try to forget I’m wearing a bulletproof vest and I’ll try to forget that you could be packing a .44 Magnum,” the professor told students Tuesday morning when he showed up for his basic screenwriting course, his first class of the semester.
