Another Fake College "Gun" Scare

posted on May 8, 2017

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
