Internet Flame War in Class

Student at Oregon college wants to discuss the inferiority of the AR-15. So, he brings one to school, disassembled. No one freaked out and reported the incident. Then the professor denounced [the student] as a government informant and killer. Told the university he carried a gun. And asked the head of Oregon FBI if they were bankrolling the student. Then, it gets weird.

    Wow that is a complex story. Ironically the comments from the professor about reduced pay may actually come true, for everyone nutty buddy that supports him.

    Talking about his one-at-a-time parts removal for discussion, I’m wondering if the student was smart and just left his stripped lower at home (I can imagine much discussion could be made still even omitting that piece) so he would be 100% compliant in the school policy.

    Odd story tho…

    Why is it that every time one of these ultra-lefty wacko “professors” gets in trouble, the media describes him/her as “beloved”?

    Weird indeed! Everyonewas Bucharest’s friend, butsuddenly there’s all these allegations that would indicate a cause for concern. But they only surfaced after this berserk professor’s attack. Curiouser and curiouser!

  5. Mu Says:

    I was kind of feeling sorry for the prof, until the part of “he declined to file an official complaint” leading to the public “outing”. This shows he wasn’t going to dare expose himself to consequences (or at least so he thought) by putting anything in writing but relied on “academic freedom and free speech” to make accusation that couldn’t be questioned as “false accusations”.

    Inferior to what? A phased plasma rifle in 40-watt range?

  7. ben Says:

    Ah, to the AK-47. My rebuttal would have been a 100yd target.

    ben, He was probably only half wrong. The rifle that he used in the IDF was probably the Galil rifle that is loosly based upon the AK. By every account I have seen the Galil is an excelent weapon (disclaimer, I have handled one, but I didn’t have a chance to fire it). I have heard from friends that have fired one that while it isn’t as accurate as the AR15/M16 rifles it is worlds better than the average AK. Although if he really was talking about an AK, I have to agree with you. The AK does have some advantages in that it isn’t as fussy as the AR when it comes to getting dirty.

    Yep, that’s my Alma Mater. It was whacky there 45 years ago, and it’s still whacky there. BTW, during duck season, I would leave at midnight for the local wildlife management area, study in my car for several hours, while also getting the first position for a walk-in blind, then take a nap, and get up at 0500 to check in and haul my deeks and shotgun out to the blind. Hunt for a few hours, drop any ducks off at home, then scoot for class. Met several other college students out there over the three years I did that, and sometimes, even left my shotgun in the car, on campus, if I got no ducks. couldn’t do that today, of course.

    I’m surprised he wasn’t ambushed by a gaggle of rabid HK fanboys after class.

    Much like Rivrdog this story caught my interest because I too am an alumnus of PSU. What really got weird though was all of the classes that I had attended that were taught by Dr. Hall.

    The guy is a good economist, an above average teacher but, even back then he would seem to suddenly bring something into the lecture that was off the wall and off topic.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
