We told you last week how St. Louis University was virtually shut down because of a rubber-band gun that a student had built for his Engineering Manufacturing Procedures class project.
Now we've learned that the campus of Colgate University, a private liberal arts school in New York State, went into “active shooter” lockdown last Monday because an art student working on a project was seen carrying a glue gun. By Tuesday morning, the all-clear was sounded, but not before a SWAT team, a variety of local law enforcement agencies, and what was described as “a tank” had responded to the incident.
As NRA-ILA pointed out in a weekend update, it truly is deplorable that college-aged students at an “elite” university are so detached from any exposure to firearms—or from any sort of handiwork, apparently—that the mere glimpse of a glue gun could send them into a full-scale panic
Anti-Gun Bills To Be Heard This Week In Nevada
Two anti-gun measures are set to be heard in the Nevada Assembly Judiciary Committee this week, and gun owners in the state should make their voices heard on both.
Senate Bill 115 would expand the list of places firearms are prohibited from being carried and kept to include public library property. In addition to banning firearms within the library, this prohibition would be extended to include the parking lot as well.
SB 387 would allow for ex parte orders to remove your Second Amendment rights—not because of a criminal conviction or mental adjudication, but based on third-party allegations. This order lacks due process as firearms are required to be surrendered weeks before a hearing may take place.
Use Your Power!
Nevada gun owners are encouraged to contact Assembly Judiciary Committee members in opposition to both of these measures. Contact them byclicking here.
Armed Citizen Stops Florida Apartment Invasion
An Orlando, Fla., apartment resident used a personally owned firearm to stop a home invasion early Thursday morning.
According to local media reports, several armed intruders barged into the apartment just before 3 a.m. Fortunately, the resident was ready to handle the situation.
“Shots were fired between the suspects and the victims,” Orlando police Lt. Daniel Brady told wftv.com. “One of the suspects was critically wounded, and none of the victims were injured.” The wounded home invader was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center for treatment. The other intruders are still being sought by law enforcement.
