David Codrea understandably got his dander up here at this story here, the substance of which is below:
For CCSU student John Wahlberg, a class presentation on campus violence turned into a confrontation with the campus police due to a complaint by the professor.
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”.
“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.”
Now this is outrageous to be sure, and David vented quite naturally, calling Professor Anderson, among other things, "a certain miserable Marxist sow." This however was too much for the Porcine Anti-Defamation League, of which I am an associate member. Consequently, the following email was dispatched post haste.

We became aware of your case by monitoring the rabid gun rights blogs, among whom one David Codrea had this to say:
Paula Anderson doesn't even want to let us talk about it? This is a "communications professor"? What is that, some kind of Orwellian sick joke? I wonder if she realizes the implications of using police state tactics to close that door? Someone ought to tell her. And Wahlberg should have told his inquisitioners to speak to his attorney. I hope they end up doing so, along with a certain miserable Marxist sow.
This is an awful calumny and an insult to honest four-legged sows everywhere. Just because a cloistered liberal university professor reacts to the mere mention of armed self-defense by law-abiding citizens as would, say, Dracula to a crucifix or a lesbian to a male phallus is no cause for surprise. By calling in the coercive power of the state to enforce your collectivist opinion, you have simply done what you have been programmed to do by years of state-worshipping propaganda. It is perfectly understandable. One might as well blame a rattlesnake for biting, or a skunk for stinking. They are what they are. You are what you are.
However, this is no reason for Mr. Codrea to call you a "miserable Marxist sow." THAT is an insult to honest sows everywhere. I am copying him on this email so that he may be advised of our demand that he apologize to our millions of hard-working honest porcines.
