It would seem that Christa Brashier understands that declaring a place to be “gun free” doesn’t really make you safer, and in fact reduces your safety.
Officials of the community college apparently have a differing opinion.
She said she was told her efforts amounted to “soliciting,” was ordered to destroy fliers she had created and warned she risked sanctions if she pursued the matter further on campus without the administration’s OK.
Ms. Brashier contends that Yvonne Burns, a dean of student development at CCAC, told her during the meeting that, “You may want to discuss this topic but the college does not, and you cannot make us.”
Now, if you’d like to send your well-phrased, polite and non-threatening opinion about this situation to Ms. Burns, you can reach her at email@example.com. I’m sure that messages from Pennsylvania readers/taxpayers would be especially welcome.
Remember, you may not be able to force her to discuss this, but you can make yourselves heard.
