Professor Jennifer Yucus, of Midwestern State University, is under investigation for allegedly instructing her students to create anti-gun posters.
Professor Yucus had the signs created in a graphic design class for her own gun control campaign against some pro-gun legislation being considered by the Texas state legislature, reports CampusReform.org.
Professor Yucus used the artwork to publicize here anti-gun petition “MSU is Anti-Concealed Carry on Campus,” which was placed on a Facebook page (pictured below) that has since been taken down, reports BizPacReview.com.
The artwork was also hung in the hallways of the Wichita Falls, Texas college.
“Several of my classmates were uncomfortable with the assignment and either quietly or openly expressed this,” stated a student complaint. “Professor Yucus asked students to rationalize objections by thinking of it as a job from an employer [or words to that effect].”
“Professor Yucus took photos of her students in the process of drafting and creating the posters, but did not say how these would be used,” said the complaint.
According to Texas state law, it is illegal for state employees "to interfere with or affect the result of an election or nomination of a candidate or to achieve any other political purpose.”
