    When it rains it pours. :-(

    This rash of shootings does no good for our cause. The myopic gun control advocates seem to be getting new examples to bolster their arguments weekly. My first reaction is that it's another example of of a 'resistance free' zone created by laws that restrict law abiding citizens from defending themselves. Clearly the BGs don't pay attention to campus gun restrictions. When are people going to figure this out?

    Now the report and title are confusing. Because it makes it seem like Shooter was on campus yet the story read near campus.

    CNN) -- Police took a man into custody Monday after "multiple people" were shot near Texas A&M University, a police official said.

    Several law enforcement officers were among the people shot, Rhonda Seaton of the College Station Police Department told CNN. She didn't have information on how many people were shot or their conditions.

    She said a person identified as the gunman was in custody. The shooting happened about one block from campus, Seaton said.

    The university had warned people to stay away from the intersection of Welborn Road and George Bush Drive as well as part of Fidelity Drive in College Station, Texas.

    "School shooting" is sure to help the anti-gun lobby. It could be on the opposite end of town but it has more shock value if you make it sound like another gun went on a shooting spree involving innocent students.

    Praying for the victims and hoping the justice system gets this right as far as punishing the shooter.

    Hard to say if they ever will "get it." But we just have to keep trying and fighting against the irrational backlash which will inevitably occur.

    Too many shootings in too short of a period of time. Anti guns will be in full howl. We have to hope that everything the gunman did was illegal from his possession of a weapon to no guns allowed on campus & we also have to hope that he didn't have a legal CCW.

    Just saw this news and was saddened by it. We just got thru the funeral from the shootings in Oak Creek WI on Friday.

    The story I read says automatic weapons were involved. Now take that for what it is worth but that is a quote from the story.

    Over two hundred Americans will suffer gunshots today alone. Why all the noise about this shooting?

    It was off campus, a constable was approaching when he was shot then others were shot as well.

    Typical reactionary, shoddy, agenda-driven journalism. If the shooting isn't on a campus, place it "near the campus".
