    A University of California-Los Angeles professor is calling not only for gun control but also “qualifications” to freedom of speech in order to combat mass shootings fueled by racism, a phenomenon he says has only come to light since President Donald Trump’s election.

    UCLA professor Douglas Kellner states that until just two years ago, “all of the previous shootings were rather divorced from sociopolitical factors,” claiming that while mass shootings occurred in the past, they were the results of “individual crises of young men,” having to do with things such as family life or school trouble, in an interview published by the university.

    Kellner asserts that the phenomenon of mass shootings motivated by racist ideas is largely isolated to instances occurring since Trump's election.

    The toxicity of gun culture has created a new factor that we have never seen before, that was a major factor in the last few shootings, and that was the election of Donald Trump, and in particular, Trump’s rhetoric [on immigrants],” Kellner said, adding “there haven’t been particular racist school shootings before, or acts of domestic terrorism.”

    Gender studies must mean something different from what I studied in college.

    What you're saying is he doesn't live in reality. Of course he may not be aware of this. The best approach available is to STFU. Just get back in that 25 year old Volvo station and head back to campus where you can at least fake competency.

    Unless you are a federal judge deciding a federal case, what you "see" is irrelevant, Professor. And even then, what you "see" should be supported by the Constitution itself before it becomes relevant.
    Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

    Just like SJWs want the whole world to just like the campus they live, or did live on, this professor wants the rest of the country to be just like the college he works at and lives on; Speech Codes and Gun Free Zones.
    Most likely this guy never left school or, worked out in the private sector ( degree in Gender Studies, not likely ).

    He never had to deal with the real world his whole life, now he thinks he knows best because he lives outside of it.
