AMHERST, the Mass. – A Massachusetts college has apologized for the cancellation of a speech from a woman who advocates for allowing guns on college campuses.
Antonia Okafor says Hampshire College in Amherst cancelled her speech two hours before the scheduled start Wednesday because it is “too controversial.”
The college apologized, but it says the event was cancelled due to the “student application is not sufficiently complete,” and that is not because of the speaker.
Okafor is the co-founder of a group that calls itself a movement of women that feel empowered when they use their weapons for self-defense.”
She was invited to speak to a group for South Asian and international students. The school did not clarify what was missing from the group, but it says that it is trying to plan.
Okafor says it’s sad that free speech and gun rights are to be hated at an AMERICAN college.
