What is the best way to stop the gun violence in America? If you ask a liberal professor from Southern State Community College in Ohio, the solution is shooting up the NRA and leaving no survivors.
The terrifying statement was posted on Facebook on June 13th, when professor James Pearce called on people to storm the National Rifle Associations headquarters in Virginia.
The post has since been removed, but the text is below.
“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. 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.”
Before the post was taken down, people responded with “likes” and a laughing face emoji. The scary thing is that some people think that this professor’s idea is a good one.
Although a lot of friends responded positively, someone alerted the authorities the next day and the case is under investigation.
What kind of school would allow a person who calls for the killing of hundreds of American citizens to be a professor? Southern State Community College, that is who.
When Kriss Cross, the Director of Public Relations for SSCC, was asked about James Pearce and his comments, the school refused to discuss any details during an investigation. Kriss Cross did however spoke in general about the incident with a Campus Reform reporter.
“In general, the college would alert local authorities about any threats that were made known to the college, especially any threats made to students, faculty or staff. We have a good working relationship with the police jurisdictions covering each of our four campuses, and trust they would follow their protocols for reporting to other agencies. As I understand it, a report does not necessarily mean an investigation.”
As of right now, the school is holding strong and Pearce is still employed by the community college since no criminal charges have been filed yet.
Apparently it is ok to make horrific threats and still keep you job as long as you threaten the NRA. If Pearce threatened an LGBT organization, he would probably be fired immediately.
