Professor Wears Body Armor to Class to Protest Campus Carry Policy
A professor at San Antonio College arrived to class last week dressed in body armor to mark the implementation of a campus carry policy allowing concealed carry on school grounds.
Charles K. Smith, a geography instructor, sported a bulletproof vest and a helmet, explaining to mySA that “I was just saying I don’t feel safe.”
Smith has worked at the school for ten years and claims he was just making “a statement on how [he] felt.”
“It definitely makes me feel uneasy that there are more firearms on campus than there really should be,” Smith added, fretting that while some students likely carried illegally in the past, the new law “increases the chances of something happening.”
