Posted on 10/17/2007 9:07:36 PM PDT by Turret Gunner A20
A Minnesota college student was suspended and ordered to undergo "mental health evaluation" for his response to campuswide e-mails from school officials concerning the Virginia Tech massacre.
The college, Hamline University, a private, liberal-arts institution affiliated with the Methodist Church, has a policy on "Freedom of Expression and Inquiry" that guarantees that Hamline students will be "free to examine and discuss all questions of interest to them and to express opinions publicly or privately."
With such a strong guarantee on students' "freedom from censorship and control" by the university, student Troy Scheffler's e-mail must have been horrifically bad to warrant such a crackdown. Right?
Wrong. What Scheffler did was make a gun-rights case for concealed-carry permits on campus to help ward off potential Cho Seung-Huis before they strike Hamline.

All our founding fathers and writers of the Constitution were crazy? Who would have guessed?
People seem to have forgotten that the shooter killed two people and was not apprhended because the police already had a “prime” suspect detained. He was the boyfriend of the slain girl and he “fit the profile” because (A) he knew the victim, and (B) he owned a gun.
If you don’t support Second Amendment Rights you are crazy!!
I guess there’s a lesson here: When a university tells students to exercise their free speech rights, be careful what you say.
Im old enough to remember when not believing in the 2nd amendment would classify you as crazy. How times have changed.
The Methodist Church was on the gun ban wagon 50 years ago. Many of their efforts have not been overt, but they’ve been supporting the hoplophobes big time.
Needs to sue them.
I dated a stupid liberal (Pardon my French) chienne from that travesty of a college known as “Hamline”. The girl was the dumbest, most patronizing liberal (Again, pardon my French) salope in the world.
Get this, this (Again, pardon my excessive usage of French profanity) salope was such a stupid liberal airhead that she went on a little “I’m better than you kick” by publicly declaring herself to be a “semi-vegetarian” because she cared for the animals. If the woman really cared for the animals, she wouldn’t be a “semi vegetarian”, she would be just a regular vegetarian, like everybody else that cares for animal rights. Shrimp and chickens are animals too.
God I (Francias) basies hate that chienne and I wish she was mort! (Continuing with the French theme).
Sounds entirely reasonable to me. Most of the time that is exactly what happens - it’s somebody close to the victim, not some random loon on a killing spree. I don’t blame the police for this.
What was inexcusable is forcibly rendering everybody else on campus defenseless. There’s pretty much never a cop around when the s**t hits the fan.
Isn't there a more liberal, common sense need not apply school in the PacNorwest? The one that both Lewinsky and the pancake girl went to?
Hamline probably ranks #2, but the stupidity taught there will do just as much damage.
No mention of the efforts by Elites who are mandating psych elvals for children. Statists are entrenched within both parties.
You should’ve gotten even with the twit... While you were in delicto flagrante with her later that evening, announce in your loudest voice at the point of no return, “I’m a Conservative !” and watch her squirm in horror. Put your pants on, walk out and say, “Put some ice on that, and au revoir, baby. You just been screwed like a Dhimmicrat.” ;-D
Evergreen State in Olympia Washington.
Monica Lewinsky went to Lewis & Clark College, near Portland, OR
I seem to recall there’s a little piece of legislation making its way through Congress that would now restrict this individual from owning a gun because he has now been referred to a shrink. The bill has lots of support, too, IIRC.
All the libs are cut from the same cookie cutter: The United Methodist church is so pro-abortion that they were PRO PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION until 2000; and they STILL have a waiver built in "for the safety of the mother's life". They even sent Bill Clinton congratulations for vetoing the two congressionally passed bans.
I guess theres a lesson here: When a university tells students to exercise their free speech rights, be careful what you say.
Could you imagine if he was able to recite the 2nd Amendment by memory!!!!! They would have been hiding under desks peeing themselves, this crazed madman about to snap and kill anything that moves. Head for the safe rooms, call 911!
Go scare these people for Halloween, learn the 2nd amendment and recite it robotically like the Terminator.
Next they will call the fear that you are getting older and wanting to save money against time you are too old to work a mental illness. Saving money or buying insurance in case you get sick could go the same way.
The college administrators are crazy. They need a psychological evaluation.
At a number of colleges with speech codes, etc., I am sure one could imagine: If You Favor FIRST Amendment Rights, You Must Be Crazy
While there may be a case for some civil charges against the university, and that there's something to be said for standing on principle, I think this student should take a step further. As a consumer of this school, and unless there's some other valid reason for him to want to stay, he ought to "take his business elsewhere," and transfer out.
(magslinger hangs head)I’m a baaaad person.
A response to dissidents in the old Soviet Union was to put the dissidents in mental institutions...
“Everything old is new again!”
Dude. Your suppose to date girls you LIKE!
Evergreen State College, or maybe they call it a “university” now.
I honestly can’t remember the last time a news story made me physically sick to my stomach...this one did.
As a senior at a state university with a no-weapons policy (we’re lucky the police can carry), the idea that simply questioning a ridiculous policy can get you suspended and referred to a psychiatrist, is absolutely horrifying.

“The said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” ~Samuel Adams, 1788
I honestly cant remember the last time a news story made me physically sick to my stomach...this one did. >p? Well, keep the barg bag handy while you read this thread and get the full story of just what those freaks did to this kid's life:
bump for publicity
To loosely use a line from Raising Arizona, “You want to defend yourself, buy a gun. You want to find a Dunkin Doughnuts, call a cop.”
If this is the same guy from last weeks thread, I read the emails he sent. He choose his words poorly (if its the same guy) to say the least.
Re: Hot. No. She was a whale, but she was a brabuster type of whale.
Re: Being screwed. Well, when I met her, I was going through a lot of mental anguish because of my learning disability (High Functioning Autism) was hampering me socially. I wasn’t myself. Also, I was dating this girl and I got burnt so she was sort of a rebound case.
Well, during my breakdown, she broke up with me and then afterwards made an anti-dating site about me making fun of my suicide attempt.
Re: I thought I liked her but then I found out how spiteful she is.
Moral of the story: Never go out with a liberal. Behind their nice exterior, they’re really spiteful people.
Ewwww. I retract what I said. Only worth doing if she’s a skinny hottie.
It's called "zero tolerance" and it's been around since the Safe Schools Act (which declared all educational institutions to be "gun-free" school zones.)
