Emmanuel professor fired after shooting re-enactment
BOSTON -- A professor at Emmanuel College has been fired for his in-class re-enactment of the Virginia Tech shootings.
Nicholas Winset was terminated and permanently barred from the Boston campus after a lecture he gave on Wednesday showed the gunman could have been stopped if another student was carrying a gun, according to a Boston Herald report.
On the Internet web site You Tube, Winset explains how he used a magic marker as a depiction of a gun.
Winset said the re-enactment was part of a lecture on the issue of gun control. He said he wanted to teach his students that they should fight back in violent situations.
The college had no comment on the firing.
