Marcy, did you ever take this student aside and explain to him that
his views were not acceptable indeed illegal if acted upon in
contemporary North American or western society? (This is not the
case with your anti-gun-control student).
I have done that myself in a similar situation; but then I was not
born here and am married to some-one from the so-called Third World,
so have some experience navigating - not always successfully -
Anyway, thank you Rick, Russ and others for your very thoughtful
