People shouldnt tweet or post on a blog anything they wouldnt shout in church or on the job. That lesson keeps getting relearned through unfortunate object lessons.

David W. Guth, an associate professor of journalism at the University of Kansas, was put on indefinite administrative leave Friday for a tweet criticizing the National Rifle Association after the Washington Navy Yard mass shooting. The NRA is a big, easy, convenient target, but it also has a lot of vocal supporters.
Kansas as a beet red state is not the best place for anyone to say nasty things about the NRA. The conservative politics of Kansas wont tolerate it.
Free speech about the NRA isnt free when what anyone might say, blog or tweet isnt favorable to that gun advocacy group.
