Cambridge University Students' Union has said that having military personnel at their freshers' fair is 'alarming' for attendees and could 'affect' their mental health.
Students voted in favour of banning societies from bringing firearms to the annual fairs after union welfare and rights officer Stella Swain suggested those with mental health issues could find their presence 'triggering'.
The motion said that the presence of military personnel carrying firearms at the fair indicate 'implicit approval of their use, despite the links between military and firearms and violence on an international scale'.

Why not “trigger” them and then pound the pish out of the spoiled little snots?
Therapy and attitude adjustment required. Do it early to save them.
Me thinks the Cambridge University union is Mental
Well, Oxford students passed a resolution never to fight for king and country, during the 1930s. (War as “bad”.)
See how that turned out for them when reality struck...
If they have ‘mental health issues’ what in hell are they doing at CAMBRIDGE in the first place?............
I know this is probably insensitive of me, but maybe it’s the mentally ill that ought to be banned instead of the military.
Reasons aside, I wonder which group being banned would affect overall attendance more?
WE are not doomed but the stupid Brits certainly are.
Between the transgenders and the snowflakes who are easily triggered, we are building societies that are run by the mentally ill, for the mentally ill.
Normal people have no place in modern society.
Some people just plain need triggering.
The infection of progressivism can fester even in such hallowed institutions as Oxford and Cambridge. Hopefully, they will successfully weather this invasion of the silly pseudo-students.
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world, That has such people in it!.................W. Shakespeare, The Tempest
What's next? Banning the Christmas poppers lest the idiots get triggered, whoopsie, trigger=gun=bad...mustn’t say that.
ummm, actuate the snowflakes crazy valve.
With the wounds of WWI still fresh, and given the utter waste of millions of men at the direction of the King, at that time it was hard to blame them.
The Union already has a mental health problem and should seek help in an attempt to become a mature and intelligent group. At present it is below a pre-school group.
It’s why they’re there.
1st Cambridge Student: Are you from Eaton?
2nd Cambridge Student: No, I haven’t had a thing!..............

They later got drafted and became cannon fodder in the war. If they had joined up early, likely many more have survived as officers.
I do not miss them, but somehow they are back yet again to try and do the devil’s work,just another iteration of Beta maleeuro-weenie cowardice , cloaked in a mistaken morass of liberal sensitivity, designed to relieve men and women of their civic duties so the commies and fascists can conquer freedom and liberty from within. The same shit is happening in Israel and in the United States , but we are fighting back, something these academic, utopian dream weavers are not used to.
And by mental health issues they mean Muslim, yes?
“Normal people have no place in modern society.”
Yesterday I made the twice monthly run to town for supplies.
Tractor Supply, two grocery stores, Home Depot and Walmart.
When did society become a freak show? Blue, green, purple and orange hair, facial piercings enough to make a studded leather jacket blush, tatted up faces, horrible tattoo art in general, blue jeans that look like they were run over with a lawn mower, greasy-straight hair styles for women, black lip-stick, no one says hello in passing, and most everyone is a phone zombie.
Makes me feel like I’m the weird one.
