Killing Two Birds With One Bill

Florida state Rep. Dennis Baxley, a Republican from Ocala, is enough of a self-caricature that I have not addressed his shenanigans, to date. He's known for two controversial proposals – one to expand the castle doctrine so that you can shoot someone outside of your home or business if you believe your life is threatened, and the other to prevent university professors from espousing controversial (translate: liberal) positions in the classroom.

I've been wondering why he didn't combine the two ideas and allow university conservative students to shoot professors when they felt threatened by their liberal opinions.
