Gotta be a hoax, Massachusetts has very strict gun laws which keep everyone safe. You will notice that not a single person was shot while those bombs were going off for example.

Prayers for the officer and his family.

Not sure why someone would do this at MIT, and especially in light of the terror attack in Boston, would happen to choose this week.

Sady I think you're right.

Before I heard this was happening on the MIT campus, I was enjoying reading this:

Shootings are supposedly rare in Boston and on the MIT campus in Cambridge but more common in surrounding areas.

There must be some kind of a bad guy netting which keeps them out of the tonier areas where the rich and important people live. /tongue firmly in cheek

It is doubtful anyone is ever going to answer how gun control is supposed to get the already out there guns away from the crooks and professional criminals.

You've got a point there.

Guess no one let the bad guy know about the law.

All their gun control doesn't work, but the Massholes will never stop screwing with people who aren't the problem in the first place. That's what MA Donkeys and RINOs do, because they totally refuse to go after, prosecute, and convict the thugs or mental wackos responsible.

Looking for 2 Middle Eastern men.

If it's the bombers, then Obama will be out there taking credit for their capture. If not, them Obama will be out there saying how the Cambridge police "acted stupidly" for profiling.

MIT Sporting Clays Association







What are sporting clays? Please see this explanation from the BBC.

The MIT Sporting Clays Association is a graduate (undergraduates welcome) funded student group officially recognized by the Association of Student Acitivities. Our mission is to foster the activity of sporting clays (skeet, trap and sporting clays) among the MIT community. Range practice is generally conducted at the Minute Man Sportsmen Club.

We practice throughout the school year, and competed in 2011 for the first time in the 2nd Annual New England Collegiate Shotgun Championships, where our squads placed 4th and 5th overall, ahead of the Tufts, Harvard and Northeastern teams. We plan to compete again this year in the Spring.

If you are a member of the MIT community, and would like to learn more about the MIT SCA, please e-mail the club officers at sportclays-officers (at) mit (dot) edu. Meeting times are generally biweekly, but please send an e-mail to be added to the sportclays (at) mit (dot) edu mailing list to verify this schedule.

Also, if you have a general interest in shooting activities at MIT, please visit the MIT Pistol and Rifle Club, MIT Pistol Club (formerly the Varsity Pistol team), the Varsity Rifle team and IM Air Pistol.

The police officer has passed away from his injuries. Still I really hope it’s a separate incident. Otherwise this Summer might turn out to be a very long hot Summer.

If BHO and his handlers have anything to do with it, yes, conservatives will get all blame. However there appears to be some hope in the Ivy League
