What if he said he was gay?

Via Say Uncle I found out some college professors will call the police if you advocate exercising your Second Amendment rights to defend innocent life:

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”.

That’s all it takes to have someone call the police on you? And furthermore the police didn’t tell the bigot, “Get over it.”? What if a student had announced they were gay? That could have made some people “scared and uncomfortable”.

I wonder if the college has some sort of policy against “creating a hostile environment” that could be applied to Professor Anderson.

  1. “I wonder if the college has some sort of policy against “creating a hostile environment” that could be applied to Professor Anderson.”

    Good question.
    I wonder if he’s consulted a laywer yet. This sounds like a great way to kill two birds with one stone- get the college to pay for his tuition and kick a smelly turd off the porch at the same time.

  2. Heh, and people say the reason they don’t want weapons in the class room is to ensure the free exchange of ideas. This individual expressed his ideas and the instructor called the police.

    As for the police listing the weapons he owned when they asked where I kept them the response would be: “Am I under arrest?”
    If the answer is no, am I being investigated for the commission of a crime?
    –Yes, respond with contact my attorney.
    No, leave and contact an attorney.
    If the answer is yes, “What crime? I would like my an attorney present immediately.” Then say nothing else.

  3. If the school doesn’t have a policy about”creating a hostile environment” I sure as hell would create one at every opportunity. Maybe dropping by the teachers office everyday to inform her that I am not carrying a firearm today, and getting the campus CCW folks to do likewise.
