Lots of college kids love swords. Either Asian swords for martial arts, or swords with runes on them for fantasy buffs, Medieval swords for the history fans, etc.We all had swords back-in-the-day, and I still see them at yard sales all the time (sold mine on ebay! Now I have g-ns))

One student told the TV station cops told him they were looking for “an African American male” dressed in the gear.

It's probably some landscaping guy with a leaf blower (that looks like an AR-15 "of course").

I'm just ticked that WTIC radio broke in and dumped Rush Limbaugh's show for the entire afternoon. Switched to the always-reliable WHYN 560 AM (Springfield, MA) to hear Rush's live show...

NOT TO WORRY...perhaps later this afternoon The Great Leader will hold a press conference allegedly relevant to this development.

The is an outside chance that he will at some point n the press conference make reference to his latest in the Series Of CARE Websites.

See Below





oh this was a SWORD.....oh well back to the drawing board...

Obamacare is going terribly for the national socialists under barack.

They need a good diversion about now. Syria should blow up, or Iran, or a schoolyard shooting, or a hurricane....something.

Which one will do the best job of diverting from that roll out and price hike?

Irresponsible reporting. BARF!

WFSB reporter: *I don't hear ANY GUNSHOTS. NO GUNSHOTS*

One student [who they call unreliable and not credible b/c it's not a policeman]; kid said he saw a black kid get off a public transit bus with a mask on, and a ninja sword in his backpack. He said I thought he was a leftover from Halloween and I parked my car.....and went to class.

3 students taken out of dorm in handcuffs....w/ 3 SWAT, 2 K-9s.

NO ONE knows what is going on. If these yahoo reporters say *gun* one more time I going to smash my teevee.

Reporters are disappointed that there seems to be no blood or gunfire.

And the photo was orignally Photoshopped. No one ports a 12 gauge shotgun on one side only, notice the gas discharge to the right of the gun.

And the smoke in general does not look real.

They are still yammering on. So far they have wondered if it is a active shooter, shooting, guy with sword, suspicious person, or one of the above. Not sure how it’s possible as CCSU surly has a no guns/weapons policy.

If someone is running around with a sword and I’m locked down in class, I would be a lot more comfortable if I and several of my classmates were armed rather than sit there and hope someone will “protect and serve” us.

Was the guy even armed besides the sword? Was he a fencer?

Open carry with a permit is legal in CT, and my quick research shows that carry on campus is not prohibited soooo...what specifically was the problem?
