    Ugly: Another School Shooting! (merged)

    I was watching MSNBC and there was breaking news of another school shooting at the University of Northern Illinois. This time it was a man with a shotgun and so far 3 have been confirmed dead. There are reports that the gunman may still be on campus. When will school administrators wise up and allow law abiding students like myself to take the necessary precautions to protect ourselves from psychos like this? If anyone sees an official story about this... feel free to update.

    Not much up yet on todays shooting but found an interesting article from December relating to NIU...

    NIU on alert after Virginia Tech shooting reference found on wall -- chicagotribune.com

    ...looks like the email/voicemail/web alert system and GFZ signs didn't work. Pathetic attempts by administrators to stop BG's.

    Illinois School Shooting

    There has been another school shooting. This one took place at Northern Illinois University. At this time, I don't know how many are injured or dead. It occurred around 15:00 EDT. Hopefully there are NO deaths.

    I am still waiting on Texas to do something about school carrying.

    There have been 3 shootings on college campuses in the past week including this one. One wasn't highly publicized but it occured in my hometown of Birmingham at Miles College which is an HBCU.

    Ok, maybe it's just me, but WHAT IS GOING ON!!! Has the media been jumping on every story lately, or has there in fact been an increase in shootings?!? I don't recall seeing this many "high publicity" shootings.....well, ever. Is the world going crazy, is the media hyping these incidents, or is my brain turning to mush?

    If I go to college after I get out of the Marines...if they allow CCW on campus or not will be a big deciding factor for which school I choose.

    If that is one of your main criteria in deciding a school, I must say, your choices will be greatly limited.

    This whole situation is starting to get ridiculous. I feel safer walking on a downtown street than I do sitting in my lecture hall (not being able to carry certainly adds to this feeling).

    I'm watching the coverage on the news now. At this time, two are dead (not including the shooter) and possibly as many as 15 or 16 wounded. At this point, no one is sure if the shooter committed suicide or was shot by police.

    On a hunch, I checked the NIU student policy, and as you might have expected, the university prohibits student possession of firearms or most other kinds of weapons. Exceptions can be made with written authorization, but the weapons must be stored in a security office. Students are not allowed to have weapons in their dorms. So I guess we can be fairly certain that he wasn't stopped by an armed citizen, unless the citizen was violating campus policy.
