Posted 11:33 AM 9/20/2013 : Professor blames NRA on Navy Yard shooting in tweet
(KSNT) A University of Kansas journalism professor is under fire for a single tweet.
Following the Washington Navy Yard shooting that left 12 dead on Monday, Profesor David Guth sent out this tweet:
"The blood is on the hands of the N-R-A. Next time, let it be your sons and daughters. Shame on you. May God damn you."
"Yes, I was deliberately provocative and I did it to expect a response," Guth now says. "I'll be honest I didn't expect it would provoke the response I've gotten now, but I have nothing to apologize for."
