A hysterical University of Texas economics teacher has quit his post and revealed plans that hes decreasing Under as a result of a new weapon law taking resultworking that will allow university student with a hidden bring permit to bring concealed in campus buildings.

An esteemed economics teacher at the University of Texas at Austin resigned in the wake of a brand-new open bring law that could allow people to have actually hidden weapons in college buildings.

The law’s fans argue it will assist protect students and professors in the occasionin case of a shooting. But, Daniel Hamermesh, who is the Sue Killam Professor Emeritus, wrote in a letter to University President Greg Fenves that the law enhanced the “danger that a dissatisfied student might bring a weapon into the class.”

“The problem is not people like me, I’m small potatoes, the real issue is that for Texas, for people who are believingconsidering coming here, they have great deals of options. The ones we want to work with here do have options,” he composed in the letter, which was released by Texas’s KXAN.

The law enters into result Aug. 1, 2016 and would permit licensed weapon owners to bring hidden weapons into class and university structures.

According to his bio, Hamermesh taught at the University of Texas from 1993 up until 2014 when he retired. He was set to teach a course every fall till 2017, but provided the modification in the law he’s chosen not to preserve the contract.

In a letter to the President, Hamermesh explained that he’ll be investing some of next fall at the University of Sydney where “the threat appears lower.”

Hamermesh pointed out prior shooting events of professors by lawful hidden providers in his letter as validation for stopping

Wait a minute he didnt. In reality, Hamermesh couldnt, as there arent any recorded instances of students with concealed bring authorizations murdering their teachers with a legally-concealed pistol on a college school in US history.

Hamersmith likewise noted that he taught primarily taught 18-year-olds. Concealed bring authorization holders must be 21-years-old, therefore his argument that his course run a considerably enhanced threat likewise falls flat as a matter of facts and reasoning.

Put candidly, Professor Hamersmith isn’t making even a remotely sensible case for his stopping the University of Texas at Austin, and instead appears to just be scapegoating the brand-new Texas law as an excuse.
