Paula Anderson asked students in her communication course at Central Connecticut State University to make an oral presentation on a "relevant issue in the media." John Wahlberg talked about campus violence and how allowing students to carry weapons might have stopped some campus shootings earlier. That night, campus police asked Wahlberg to come in. They had a list of weapons registered to him and began grilling him about where he kept them. It turns out that his teacher had filed a complaint claiming Wahlberg's talk had "scared" other students.
