Anti-gun prof calls for shooting up NRA, ensuring ‘no survivors’

July 6. 2016

An adjunct professor at Southern State Community College (SSCC) in Ohio is under investigation for threatening to shoot up the NRA.

James Pearce wrote a Facebook post on June 13 calling on other “anti-gun types” to “storm the NRA headquarters” and “make sure there are no survivors.”

SSCC is allowing law enforcement to investigate the case, and suggested a negative finding could be grounds for termination.

“Look, there’s only one solution. A bunch of us anti-gun types are going to have to arm ourselves, storm the NRA headquarters in Fairfax, VA, and make sure there are no survivors,” James Pearce wrote in a Facebook post on June 13. “This action might also require coordinated hits at remote sites, like Washington lobbyists. Then and only then will we see some legislative action on assault weapons. Have a nice day.”

Education or political indoctrination

The formative years of a student are spent under the guidance of parents first and then teachers; jointly they influence future behavior. The educational system can either reinforce or correct parental errors and attitudes, either strengthen the student’s desire to grow toward freedom and maturity or stifle the need to develop and twist them into the need to resign themselves to permanent childishness and dependence.

Today we unwittingly tend to mold minds into a prefabricated pattern and to give our students the illusion that they know or have to know all the answers. The fallacy of such half-education is that the order, in which it establishes the juxtaposition of those who cannot read and understand, directing them to become better followers and worse thinkers.

The form of education, which sets a premium on dependency, which over-controls the student, which makes a moral appeal through punishment and provoking a sense of guilt, which overrates mechanical skills and automatic learning, this form of education kneads the brain into a pattern of conformity which can easily be turned into totalitarian channels.
