    Nibbling on sponge cake, watching the sun bake,
    All of those students all going to class,
    Got concealed carry, for when things get hairy,
    I f*cked up, shot my self in the ass

    Wasting away here in Academia
    Searching for my lost iota of sense
    Some people claim there’s gun grabbers to blame,
    But I know, it’s my own damn fault.

      A song destined to be played many times this year, mind if I post this on my FB page?

    I’m sure his students feel a WHOLE lot safer now, seein’ as how he’s the guy that’s supposed to defend them from other shooters who are likely to be more capable.

      especially since he has an enhanced conceal carry permit… whatever that means. sounds like an important permit.

    The professor suffered non-life threatening injuries.

    The bullet must have hit him in the head.
