A student at Modesto Junior College in California was banned from passing out copies of the Constitution. When he complained to administration, he was told that he could only hand them out in the ‘free speech zone’ and only then by appointment. The earliest appointment was sometime in October.

The student, Robert Van Tuinen, knew what would happen if he tried to hand out pocket Constitutions and made sure he caught it all on tape.

One in six colleges have free speech zones. Colleges should be a place where free speech is more-or-less unbridled. Something is very wrong with this policy.
