A University of Kansas student said a professor teaching a fall semester online class isn’t holding office hours over fears that guns are allowed on campus.

Professor Eric Rath’s syllabus for a history class on Japan’s Samurai allegedly contained two pages of arguments against the Second Amendment and criticism of students who support it.

“With guns allowed on campus, I no longer feel safe having visitors in my office; so instead of in person office hours, I am available for consultation via email or Skype on the hours indicated above and by appointment,” Rath wrote. “Should you wish to meet in person, the appointment will be at a secure or public location of my choosing, but not my office. Please read the statement about concealed weapons at the end of the syllabus.”

Tony Katz cheered the professor’s decision to protect himself:

“Good on you for recognizing that you should be able to do everything in your power to protect yourself.”
