On Wednesday, Campus Reform reported that James Pearce, an adjunct professor at Southern State Community College in Ohio, is under investigation for a Facebook post in which he suggested storming the NRA headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia, and killing everyone present.
“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,” he wrote on Facebook last month.

Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
According to the Highland County Press, his unhinged comments were reported to local law enforcement.
The Press added:
On Friday, June 17, Gary Heaton, Southern State Community College Security and Emergency Response coordinator for Central Campus, said:
“Chief (Hillsboro Chief of Police Todd) Whited and (HPD Officer) Eric Daniels brought this to our attention early in the week. The Police Department received a complaint from a former SSCC student and then they informed SSCC.
“We discussed the proper avenue. I took the information to VP Dr. (Nicole) Roades, who would be his immediate supervisor,” Heaton said. “Chief Whited took the information to Highland County Sheriff Donnie Barrera, since the post was made in the county.
“Dr. Roades contacted the Ohio Attorney General. The sheriff sent the information to the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. The Attorney General advised Dr. Roades to take no action until the Feds had completed an investigation.”
At the time, the Press said Pearce “is teaching summer term.”
What’s he teaching, Applied Genocide 101?
According to Campus Reform:
Kris Cross, Director of Public Relations for SSCC, told Campus Reform that “it is the college’s policy not to comment on individual personnel matters,” but did offer some general observations of potential relevance to the case.
“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,” she explained. “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.”
When asked if Pearce would continue to teach during the investigation, Cross stated, “Certainly any criminal prosecution and findings could be a consideration for employment decisions in any matter of criminal conduct.”
The Daily Caller said the NRA responded on Twitter by writing, “unreal.”
Sadly, it’s all too real.
