This would never happen if the other students had guns and knives, or knives and guns.

FTA: "School officials said Monday's lockdown was not an active-shooter situation as of about 1 p.m., but continued to order students to stay inside. "

Quick!  More gun control!

You know it's serious when someone makes a Vine video of the situation.

One student told NBC they saw a man walking into that building, James Hall, carrying a gun, Japanese-style sword, kneepads, an armor-like vest, paintball goggles and multiple clips or magazines.

Knife?  No, it's way more awesome than that.  It's a katana.  It's too bad his name isn't Bill:

I was just thinking that this weekend, that whenever someone who is not a police officer or soldier (or Marine, yadda yadda) goes on a rampage they're referred to as a "gunman."

This lockdown started a few hours ago, with very few details.  I don't know what to expect, but I'm fully prepared for this to be "National Guardsman of African American descent returns from his weekend obligation, sheltered white female with cell phone creates campus-wide panic"

Clearly the issue is not gun control or no gun control.  The best thing to do is absolutely nothing.  Let's just hope the problem goes away on its own without anyone having to be inconvenienced by considering to do something.

$5 says it was a scary black man in a scary full-length black jacket, holding an umbrella.

/ he was probably wearing a hat and had a beard

Bolt cutters, modified halligan....breaching tools.....more than likely titanium cause its light weight that's what tier one operators use in the "stan".

You know....to break through locked doors and shoot everyone on the other side....instead of waiting for them to get hungry or use the bathroom.

Was it a glock, or an AK-47?  How many clips did he have?

Mad Jack Churchill approves, suggests he carry a sword and bow into combat as well

That's a bad camo pattern for middle of the road.

Wouldn't it be smarter to wear shades of grey and black with a yellow line running through it?

Well, the thing on the far right is a pair of tactical assault bolt cutters, in the middle is what looks like a tactical assault pry-bar; the thing on the far left looks like a tactical assault clothes rack for cars thingy, it's a good bet you could use that to prop a door open.

Seriously though, those guys are military, right? If those are policemen, we're beyond farked.
 
2013-11-04 03:07:27 PM  
So is this a pro-gun control or anti-gun control  incident seeing as how he is attacking with both a knife and a gun?

Actually, the pics on twitter show them hauling off a black guy in camo pants and a bright orange shirt.

Reports of an umbrella are still unconfirmed.

I figured the one with the little hook on the end is called a Halligan bar. Or hooligan bar.

But was he wearing a hat, or possibly twiddling an evil beard?

#CCSU no classes or events this afternoon or tonight. Police have one suspect in custody, but have not sounded the all clear as of 3 p.m.

This just proves my point: we need knife control. No one should have a rapid cutting tactical assault knife!

Tactical Bagpipes is now the name of my Gordon Duncan tribute band.
