So this is what passes for critical thought and intelligent 'concern'

at our universities:
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
Ain't it wonderful?
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.”

He should have been scared. Or at least worried; an awful lot of people have had their lives screwed up by professors and university brass and LE people pushing an agenda. And it doesn't do much good to be cleared in the end after the damage has been done.
Professor Anderson refused to comment directly on the situation and deferred further comment.
Anybody surprised by that?
“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.”
Apparently 'anything that's non-PC and/or makes me and the other boobs wet our pants' threatens the 'well being' of the student body. 'Perceived risks' my ass; one of her students refused to be a nice little drone so she sicced the cops on him for, let's have that quote from the police again, "...his presentation was making students feel “scared and uncomfortable.” ".

I wonder how much these students are being robbed of to pay for this education?
