Everyone is on lockdown.
Person with a gun reported being seen entering a residential hall ....

NY Daily News - Connecticut College on Lockdown


Police tell NBC that a man possibly armed with a gun was reported entering a residential hall at CCSU. That sighting has yet to be confirmed.


CAMPUS EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION TO STUDENTS AND STAFF

I checked the CCSU live cams ... there is one that I know of and it's down.

CNN has picked up the story. There are comments in the comment section and one is from a person who is in contact with a person on campus. What is being said on campus ... gunman with hostages. But that's just what the person is saying and we don't have anything on that ....

I'm not seeing it being reported elsewhere .... very quiet.

I hope everyone is okay, and avoids harm.

I wonder why these events keep happening in states with Strict gun laws.

CT ranks up there with Ca.

I'm so glad you asked. In my opinion, it is not strict gun laws that prevent violent gun crime. It is those with a criminal and psychotic mentaility that carry out these crimes. You made a very valid point when asking your question. Education and mental health strategies will help with limiting these types of events. I did say limit. They will never cease completely. Like everything else. There will be loopholes and some of them missed.

Is Connecticut feeling left out? Since when does law enforcement use twitter to announce a major crime going down? "We will communicate when we have more info.This is not a drill," officials tweeted around noon. THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Sure OK, cower in place until they send a twitter update.

If that's the case ( and I agree it is) then the US is screwed. With the plummeting American education system, propaganda used as educational infobytes and the pathetic shape of our mental health options for those who need it, it looks bad.

Much easier for the left just to do another gun grab. All the while the right will ignore the education and mental health issue.

As you well know, media outlets such as Twitter are a popular and quick means of relaying important information to a large number of people. Most universities will ask students to sign up for "alerts" in an event such as this. I am positive that Twitter isn't the sole carrier of info, just another tool to reach people quickly.

Well interesting times Bassago. If you hav'em and are sane, hold on to them tightly because eventually someone will try and take them away.

From USAToday
Study: Despite drop in gun crime, 56% think it's worse


Violent gun crime has dropped dramatically in the past two decades, but the majority of Americans think it's more of a problem now than ever, according to a Pew Research Center study released Tuesday



The rate of non-fatal violent gun crime victimization dropped 75% in the past 20 years; The gun homicide rate dropped 49% in the same period, according to numbers Pew researchers obtained from the Bureau of Justice Statistics and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Never let the facts get in the way of a good story/agenda though...

They happen everywhere is the US, and always will, due to their obsession with firearms. People just like to forget that when they happen in the stricter states, and ask that question as bait.
