  1. #1 Hysterical Prof Calls Cops On Gun-Owning Student. 
    Professor Called Police After Student Presentation
    Posted by admin on 2/24/09 • Categorized as News

    For CCSU student John Wahlberg, a class presentation on campus violence turned into a confrontation with the campus police due to a complaint by the professor.

    On October 3, 2008, Wahlberg and two other classmates prepared to give an oral presentation for a Communication 140 class that was required to discuss a “relevant issue in the media”. Wahlberg and his group chose to discuss school violence due to recent events such as the Virginia Tech shootings that occurred in 2007.

    Shortly after his professor, Paula Anderson, filed a complaint with the CCSU Police against her student. During the presentation Wahlberg made the point that if students were permitted to conceal carry guns on campus, the violence could have been stopped earlier in many of these cases. He also touched on the controversial idea of free gun zones on college campuses.

    That night at work, Wahlberg received a message stating that the campus police “requested his presence”. Upon entering the police station, the officers began to list off firearms that were registered under his name, and questioned him about where he kept them.

    They told Wahlberg that they had received a complaint from his professor that his presentation was making students feel “scared and uncomfortable”.

    “I was a bit nervous when I walked into the police station,” Wahlberg said, “but I felt a general sense of disbelief once the officer actually began to list the firearms registered in my name. I was never worried however, because as a law-abiding gun owner, I have a thorough understanding of state gun laws as well as unwavering safety practices.”

    Professor Anderson refused to comment directly on the situation and deferred further comment.

    “It is also my responsibility as a teacher to protect the well being of our students, and the campus community at all times,” she wrote in a statement submitted to The Recorder. “As such, when deemed necessary because of any perceived risks, I seek guidance and consultation from the Chair of my Department, the Dean and any relevant University officials.”

    Wahlberg believes that her complaint was filed without good reason.

    “I don’t think that Professor Anderson was justified in calling the CCSU police over a clearly nonthreatening matter. Although the topic of discussion may have made a few individuals uncomfortable, there was no need to label me as a threat,” Wahlberg said in response. “The actions of Professor Anderson made me so uncomfortable, that I didn’t attend several classes. The only appropriate action taken by the Professor was to excuse my absences.”
    If classroom material makes you "scared and uncomfortable", maybe you don't belong in college. If you are a professor who is also a mind-reader, maybe you belong in a freak show instead of a classroom.

    Pointless to discuss guns with Liberals. Communicating with irrational pill cases is usually strained to impossible.

    Maybe she should stick to teaching "Women's Studies" and "Basket Weaving 101".

    This teacher is an ignorant fool. It has been tested and proven in multiple instances where people were required to own a gun, and crime rates plummeted. Ignorance must be met with a swift backhand to the head.
