    In 10th Grade I did a report on Ohio CCW. It had just went into effect. I didn't get in trouble for the report, but I did get a "talking to" because I featured a picture of a gun on my poster board.

    Is it my imagination or does the universe of college/university professors contain more kooks than the public at large. When I was a student the prof in my creative writing class invited students to submit anomyous questions about himself as a way to in his words "get better acquainted". Well, he's going through these and then he reads the next one to himself and has a hissy fit. It had to be mine. I didn't mean any harm but I was unsure if he wore a toupee so that was my question. "Do you wear a toupee". Hey, he's the one who invited personal questions.

    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.”

    The university police were unavailable for comment.

    “If you can’t talk about the Second Amendment, what happened to the First Amendment?” asked Sara Adler, president of the Riflery and Marksmanship club on campus. “After all, a university campus is a place for the free and open exchange of ideas.”

    WOW.

    It is almost like mentioning the word "Gun" on a campus is like yelling "Fire" in a crowded movie theater.

    . “After all, a university campus is a place for the free and open exchange of ideas.”
    The last sentence of the article. Yup, but only when the ideas reflect those of the administration. (Which tend to be liberal in scope).

    Although not an excuse...I believe one must also look at the other shoe. Columbine, VT, and a number of other high profile shootings have put administrators and teachers on edge no doubt. Do they say or do nothing?

    I think what they do not understand is it is doubtful that a student is going to give a presentation on 2A rights and campus defense, then shoot the place up. I think the professor handled it all wrong and I also blame the student. He knew that there was a sensitivity to campus carry and defense...and blindsided the professor and classmates with giving such without a pre-review with the professor beforehand.

    I also wonder if the professor's gender made a difference...sad part is she will garner much support from decision makers and parents (who foot the bills) against campus carry because the student didn't think before leaping.

    University "open and free exchange of ideas" as long as your ideas and my ideas agree. If they don't, you aren't allowing me to have freedom of thought!!

    "It's okay for me to express my idealogy and even impose it on you - but how dare you have a differing opinion. If you do differ, you are just closed minded and a backwards thinking buffoon. All you want to do is take us back to pre-victorian thinking about sex, morality, patriotism, strong work ethic, and fiscal responsibility. So, we must close you down so freedom of thought can be had."

    What a bunch of crock!!

    Kudos to the student. I hope the rest of the students agree with him, and boycott the teachers classes.

    The entire "educational" system needs to be re-evaluated.

    Let me see...if the student gave a presentation on the campus porn industry, with pics and props, without first discussing with the professor...I wonder how many of this conservative, religious orientated group would say that was inappropriate? Free speech??? 'I ought to be able to brief anything?' How many here give presentations at work...any nude pics? So, we can slap the student on the back for a job well done...but with todays political climate...he did not do the movement any favors.
