Early reports are that the shooter is a Tea Party member using .30 caliber magazine clips which he emptied in half a second.

Who’s idea was it to have ‘GUN FREE SCHOOL ZONES’? Works well! Works like all other liberal ideas, backwords.

It used to be only Post Office workers went nuts and started shooting up the place.

People even started using the term “going postal” do indicate a murderous rampage.

I had a good friend who worked at the post office- he said it was the hiring climate that put the most incompetent boobs in charge based on ‘seniority’ and government connections, rather than managerial skill and focus on productivity.

Like all kwasi-government positions, they do the stupidest thing possible. Universities are doing the same thing- you can't get hired unless you are a ‘fellow traveler’ (old school term for communist infiltrator)

Only heat needed will be that to keep you warm in the sub-freezing temperatures and snow.

I have to agree; we never had to deal with this in the past and now all of a sudden we’re getting several shootings a year.

I can only imagine that a part of this is bullying, which is getting vicious, but students these days also lack an outlet for their anger and frustration, so it boils over.

Police have a suspect in custody. University representatives tweeted authorities had cleared the building and were searching the area.

Its all the ADDHD dope the boys are put on from 2nd grade on. Its nothing but speed. Add in tons of hateful leftist indoctrination to their drug addled minds (they are all hard leftists and outright socialists).

We never had this much mental illness before the boutique mental illnesses requiring medication,,,ADDHD and Autism fakery has unleashed these mass murderers on our society.

“My question is what the hell are these schools doing to the students?”

Using a questionnaire to diagnose ADDHD, and then getting masses of boys put on a drug that has a warning right on the label that it can cause suicidal and homicidal thoughts. Then filling their heads with nearly revolutionary hatred for everything decent.

They just took the campus off lockdown except for the electrical engineering building.

I wonder........since The Left has essentially taken complete control of the higher ed in this country, since about 1970 or so, how much of this shooting garbage can be a result of their incompetence?...............

My son was just escorted out of the engineering building after holing up in the basement scared out of his wits. They’re still searching the building. We were communicating with him by text, but reception in the basement was spotty. Daughter was thankfully in her dorm at the time.

Scary! Listening to scanner traffic online. What a confusing mess!

DOH! Maybe I was thinkin of chickens? In any case, it’s lucky there are strict gun laws in nj. Hopefully no one will sneak in any “ghost guns” from Cali. (Gotta study up on my geography again. LOL!)

I likely missed what you were trying to convey. But Purdue is located in West Lafayette, IN. You knew that, right?

As Universities go, Purdue is VERY conservative. This is not to say the employees in general are uniquely and individually conservative. But Purdue is heavy in the sciences and engineering. The administration of the university is comparatively conservative.

For the most part, they still practice real science at Purdue.

Early reports are that the shooter is a Tea Party member using .30 caliber magazine

Later, but largely ignored reports are that the shooter was a far left political radical obsessed with president obama.

I’m not sure if Purdue is a “gun free” zone officially. It wasn’t when I was there.

And they even hired a Republican to be the honcho.
That’s about as rare in higher education as it is in our government...

Not only that, but also add the fact that kids face no consequences for what they do or say online. They threaten, cuss, insult and abuse each other and adults in the most vulgar ways, with zero consequences. That leads them to believe they can do whatever they want in the real world too, without consequences. There is a big disconnect between their decision making and the part of their brain that processes consequences, no doubt aided by the plethora of drugs you mention.

Based on my life experience, I would guess you are from the western half or west coast of the US. On several occasions, while living in CA, I was asked where Purdue was. In one case after being accused of being from the east coast, I explained, I went to Purdue,

Him - "Yea. East coast."

Me - "No, you ignorant hermit! Indiana is in the Midwest, in the Great Lakes region of the country, a state away from the Mississippi River and west of the Apalacian Mountains."

Him - "Well, at least you are Ivy League."

I just let that one go. LOL.

Well not quite never.

There was the U/Texas 1966 killing of 16 (or 17 if you include the perp, as is now usually done)

Also, the largest US school death toll was in Clinton County Michigan in the 1920's when 38 students were killed in an elementary school bombing by a distraught nut case.

I think circlecity, who posted “shooter tea partier....” was making a sarcastic post of what the MSM will put out without any investigation.

Circle, am I correct or did you actually report what you heard?

Geography lesson for Californians....

How to find Indiana:

Hold up your left hand with all your fingers together and your thumb sticking out but slightly bent upwards. Now, find a state mostly surrounded by water that looks like your hand. THAT’s Michigan. Now point to the state right below Michigan, the only land that borders that state to the south. THAT’s Indiana.

;o)
