I remember signing into my AOL and the news coverage said "On Campus" is this really true? If it is, then why were people saying it wasn't?

Get rid of gun free zones, notify every citizen to legally conceal carry, and this wont happen at all. You can blame the stupid politics for this. Liberals/anti gunners can go back to their stinkin caves. They are the ones who want gun free zones everywhere.. IDIOTS.

No, this did not happen on campus, this is in no way related to Texas A&M University except that it happened close to campus. That and the media, for some stupid reason, is mentioning Texas A&M in their coverage. The shooting happened at the gunmans private home, not a gun free zone. He was not a student here. The Constable that was killed was serving eviction papers when the gunman opened fire. One bystander was killed, along with the gunman. Several others were shot and survived, including 2 other police officers.

Seriously? Not only did an Officer not get to go home to his family, but an innocent bystander too? That slimy bastard needs to be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Guns aren't to blame for this monstrosity. It's the person who pulled the trigger. As with every other gun related crime.

This is the most complete write up I have seen on it. Who would have guessed my home town TV station has it.

I'm not disagreeing with you, yet. I am still trying to find out more about this situation, but the fact that Campus police arrived, and not city, county, or state, is suggesting to me this is a campus matter.

If their campus police are anything like the U of I police, then it would make sense...U of I police trump even state police in Jurisdiction in any matter that is considered University business.

Ie: If it takes place on their turf, they handle the situation.



Edit to add: I'm still looking to confirm this, but according to Federal law, no firearm is permitted within 1,000 feet of school property. This happened 2 blocks from school property...if the average "block" is about 350 feet...i'd say this is a gun free zone.

Campus police didn't respond to the scene, but they reacted. They were a couple of blocks away and stayed on campus. College Station Police (the name of the city is College Station) responded.

I know it is a little confusing, this is Texas.
