It was a farking umbrella. No wonder that guy is a bus driver.
 
2012-03-16 09:21:02 AM  
someone else didnt study?
 
2012-03-16 09:21:15 AM  
fark. i know someone who goes there.

Clearly this could have been avoided by arming all the students and faculty.
 
2012-03-16 09:22:09 AM  
There seems to be a lot of this going on lately.
 
2012-03-16 09:22:28 AM  
Probably just an old man and a cane...

Probably an umbrella.

Website reports it's an all clear.
Nothing to see here.
Move along.
 
2012-03-16 09:24:29 AM  
Was it a gunman, or a man carrying a gun?
 
2012-03-16 09:24:33 AM  
Hopefully there's nothing to this. Several of my sons' friends are at RIT.

If you had a rifle, why would you walk around campus? Unless you get your jollies by getting caught.

Kaka: ?


Somebody's gonna dye?

Then we'd have reports of a militia running around.

People who are irrationally afraid of inanimate objects are silly.

To be fair, I always carry my umbrella like a rifle, and vice versa.

It was some one with an umbrella. (new window)

A good chunk of the students will never hear the shot coming...

I believe the preferred term is "gunperson".
 
2012-03-16 09:27:55 AM  
I hope this wasn't my uncle, Art Gunman, who lives about a mile away from RIT. He's getting on in years and sometimes wanders aimlessly.
 
2012-03-16 09:27:56 AM  
Art student building a lamp (new window)?
 
2012-03-16 09:28:19 AM  
Someone has to do it. I mean, hey, them kids ain't gonna shoot themselves!
 
2012-03-16 09:28:35 AM  
Good thing this wasn't in NYC the umbrella-carrying minority would have 41 shots in him by now
 
2012-03-16 09:28:40 AM  
Good thing they banned concealed weapons, or we wouldn't even KNOW this guy had a gun

No, no, no.
Only Penis-Americans shoot people.

The criminalization of bumbershooting will destroy this country.
 
2012-03-16 09:29:05 AM  
FTA: "...due to a report of a gunman..."

WTF? This isn't Iraq, how about the press says "man with a gun" instead of "a gunman". Not as dramatic, I suppose.

Is that the guy who runs around screaming for his (late) wife, Ima?
 
2012-03-16 09:29:20 AM  
They built a man out of guns? Farking nerds, what will they think of next?
 
2012-03-16 09:30:14 AM  
Trust me, violence at RIT is not enacted with firearms, but with violent grunts and wild, menacing hand gestures...

I'm too late I see. For real though, right?

Would have been easier if they'd used the word gunsel.

Sorta reminds me of, as the post 9/11 amthrax attacks were in the news, some one where I work saw a white powdery substance in the cafeteria and panicked.
Hazmat shows up, and declares that it was POWDERED SUGAR. Near the donuts. *headdesk*

That's funny. An umbrella? There's a student with an umbrella which has a fake katana hilt. Countdown to being mistaken for a sword-wielding maniac?

I feel bad that I laughed at that.

And then riddled with bullets by the police? Sounds about right.

Someone needs to update the liberals gun recognition chart with an 22 milimeter automatic umbrella glock.
 
2012-03-16 09:37:37 AM  
So how long before the first suggestion that we ban things that resemble guns? Or that all umbrellas have to be made bright orange.

It's only a matter of time. In this day and age fear, under the guise of safety, always wins.
 
2012-03-16 09:38:05 AM  
Geez, it's just midterms people.

Study more.
