    I remember reading about this earlier today. makes me nervous, as I have a 45 minute presentation on gun safety in one of my classes later this month. of course, I live in SC, so I'm hopeful :rolleyes:

    People got "uncomfortable" about firearms because firearm owners stopped talking about owning them.

    Some people take pride that their closest friends arn't aware they own firearms. I take pride in not hiding the normalcy of owning firearms.

    Good job sir.

    I thought the article presented the facts very well. However, the clincher was ending with the great last paragraph like it did.

    yeah, the quote from sara alder at the end really puts the issue into perspective well. nice to read one without the obvious anti-gun slant for a change...

    College is no place for the free exchange of ideas. Everyone should know that by now. Surprising she didn't fail him from the class for disagreeing with HER opinion

    A well written article makes a beautiful Saturday that much better.

    It's unfortunate that there even needed to be an article, but it presented everything very well.

    It is sad that there are people that get threatened over a discussion like that, but I would be very interested to hear the conversation. It must have been pretty effective if it disturbed somebody.

    I'm actually at a loss for what to say when it comes to people like this, and stupidity of this magnitude. Hopefully it's just a troll, but I doubt it.

    You should read the comments. A couple (like the one posted above)are just incredible, to say the least.

    This professor has no business teaching anything, much less COMMUNICATIONS!

    As a far as I know, 1) CT does not have complete, mandatory gun registration, but they do like you to voluntarily register guns, and if you buy thru a dealer, the info in likely available to the police, 2) the College probably has a no-gun-on-campus rule, so the University cops were probably mostly interested that he had left the guns at home, 3) if they were really worried, they would have searched his room, 4) this is a big 1st amendment and academic freedom boo-boo, but University administrations are almost universally self-serving on this issues.

    how scared and uncomfortable will they feel when someone is parading around with a gun in a classroom and nobody around is armed?

    That's going to be a pretty quiet "communications" course if the students are limited to subjects that don't make anyone "uncomfortable."

    That sort of eliminates discussions of politics, the economy, terrorism, global warming, poverty, population dynamics, disease epidemics, racism, etc, etc...

    What will they talk about?

    God forbid anyone should be...uncomfortable.

    She probably prides herself in being open-minded and tolerant, too.

    What's scary, is that this young lady is preparing to enter the world as a professional of some sort. It is terrifying to think that a future leader in our society could fail to see the illogic of that statement.

    That is the kind of person who could put her fellow citizens in concentration camps and sleep well thinking that she had done what's best for society.

    This is precisely the reason why we need a pesky, stubborn, difficult-to-amend Constitution to stand between our rights and the whims of the ignorant mob.
