The founder of the only conservative student organization at the University of North Texas at Dallas was reportedly targeted and questioned recently after it was discovered that he owned – gasp!– a firearm.
According to reports, Brandon Masin, a 25-year-old black man enrolled at UNT’s College of Law, received an email on the evening of November 20, 2018, while attending an outing hosted by one of his professors. The email stated that Masin was being called in for questioning due to him having been reported for an “alleged and unspecified threat.”
Despite repeatedly inquiring as to the nature of this “alleged and unspecified threat,” Masin was ignored and simply told that he needed to comply with the investigation by meeting with the campus “CARE” team at a specified time and date – even though such a request was in violation of the school’s own policies pertaining to due process.
Nevertheless, Masin complied. But upon arriving to meet with those he was told was going to be the campus CARE team, Masin was instead met by the university’s Counselor and Chief of Police who vaguely questioned him about the unspecified allegations, as well as his mental health.
It eventually came out during the interrogation that UNT’s Stasi force was trying to find out more about Masin’s legally-owned firearm, and why he “felt the need” to own firearms? Masin was badgered about whether or not he has anger issues, and whether or not he open carries on UNT’s campus.
Masin was also falsely accused of having made some kind of “threat” with regards to his firearm, which he vehemently denied ever having done. Masin was forced to prove his whereabouts with witness testimony about where he was when the alleged threat was made.
Simply owning a weapon is now warrant enough to be considered a “threat” on America’s college campuses
Keep in mind that Masin was never told what the “threat” was, but was later declared to be one – for no apparent reason other than his possession of a legally-owned firearm. At least that’s how the whole thing appears, as nobody could ever say with certainty what Masin’s “crime” was that warranted his being interrogated like some kind of criminal.
Masin is a black man, though that doesn’t appear to have played a role in his unusual treatment by faculty and law enforcement at UNT. Instead, it appears as though it was Masin’s firearm – and nothing else – that spurred this latest fascist assault against the Second Amendment.
“This is nothing more than a political attack based on political bias,” contends Ammoland.com, noting that Masin has since filed an appeal with the school over his having been declared guilty of some unnamed crime based on an anonymous false accusation. “The school had no business trying to dissuade Brandon from his beliefs about being lawfully armed nor about his possession or ownership of legally possessed firearms.”
It’s important to note that Texas affirms the right of its citizens to open carry firearms without restriction – including on college campuses. This means that Masin, regardless of whether or not he was open carrying his firearm when an anonymous complaint was made, has a constitutional right to do so without intimidation or threat of punishment.
“The actions of the University of North Texas at Dallas are blatant violations of Brandon’s rights as both a student and a citizen,” Ammoland.com adds.
